Jeni Britton Bauer, the chef behind the popular Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, has been in the artisanal frozen dessert biz for a while now. Her first ‘modern, ingredient-driven’ creations came in the form of Scream, a shop Chef Britton Bauer opened in 1996. Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams was then founded in 2002. Britton Bauer has remained at the helm of the company and “is in charge of all creative output—from the ice cream itself to the supporting details that enhance the experience of eating it.”
Today Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams shops are open all over the country (with more on the horizon), including right here in our own San Diego. In April, What Now San Diego covered Jeni’s expansion to North Park and Carlsbad. We pleased to report some additional information concerning the expansion: Jeni’s North Park location will open at 2871 University Ave in San Diego.
Just down the street from hotspots like Breakfast Republic and The Mission North Park, Jeni’s newest space will give the company 1,057 square feet to work with. The ice creamery will sit squarely on the corner of University and Granada Aves.
If you haven’t yet sampled, it’s key to know Jeni’s ice creams are composed of a ‘uniquely smooth’ buttercream body. These ice creams come free of synthetic flavors and colorings and don’t care to use that typically long list of stabilizers and emulsifiers that other ice creameries use.
