Swensen’s Grill & Ice Cream Parlor
Where: 1586 S Dixie Hwy, Coral Gables, FL 33146
In 1948, the first Swensen’s Ice Cream store opened in San Francisco, CA. Founder, Earle Swensen, had three promises to customers: quality, quantity, and value for money.
Since then, 300 locations have opened worldwide and more than 180 flavors have been created, including toasted almond and Swiss orange chip.
Along the way, Swensen’s has continued to create ice cream as “good as Father used to make,” as Earle Swensen initially hoped for.
Chill’n Nitrogen Ice Cream
Where: 7316 SW 57th Ave, South Miami, FL 33143
