Bruster’s Real Ice Cream
Bruce Reed founded Bruster’s Real Ice Cream, opening the first shop in Bridgewater, Pennsylvania in 1989. Using his own recipe and making ice cream right in the store, Reed built a strong customer following. Within a few years, he was ready to start selling franchises and has since seen the Bruster’s name continue to rise in the franchise ranks. More than 230 of these homemade ice cream shops are open and operational in the United States.
