Employer Introduction

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams first opened in 2002 in Columbus, Ohio’s North Market.  Today, the company operates 20 shops throughout Ohio as well as in Nashville, Atlanta, Chicago and Charleston.  Pints are also available at more than 750 groceries across the country, as well as for home delivery to all 50 states through an online shop at

Jeni’s ice creams have been praised by Time (“America’s Best”), Cooking Light (“deadly delicious), Saveur (“revolutionary”), and scores of media outlets throughout the world.

The hands-on crew at Jeni’s makes every small-batch ice cream, frozen yogurt, and sorbet, as well as ice cream sandwich and macaroon in their kitchen in Columbus using milk from grass-fed Ohio cows, Ohio honey and whole fruits, vegetables and herbs, as well as carefully sourced ingredients from around the world.  Rare, fair-trade ingredients used in year-round flavors include Ndali Estate vanilla (Uganda) and Askinosie’s bean-to-bar chocolate (Missouri).  Signature Flavors Salty Caramel, Brambleberry Crisp and Whiskey and Pecans anchor a menu that includes limited-edition, quarterly flavor collections inspired by the seasons, pop culture, culinary history and world trends.

In June 2011, Artisan Books published “Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home.”  In its 8th printing, the New York Times best-selling cookbook was dubbed “the homemade ice-cream making Bible” by the Wall Street Journal, while the Washington Post proclaimed Jeni “an ice cream wizard.”  Most recently, “Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home” earned Jeni her first James Beard Award, America’s most coveted honor for journalists, broadcast media and authors writing about food and the culinary arts.

Jeni Britton Bauer has described the talent of the organization as a “crew of artists, writers, photographers, bakers, big-brain mathletes, travelers with omnivorous cultural appetites and world-class experience gatherers.”  The organization promotes an entrepreneurial spirit with individuals who “hustle, scrap, focus and compete.”  Furthermore, the company’s culture is formed by “mathletes and artists, misfits and rockstars and those who have shown a history of leadership and involvement in things that matter to them.”
