"One year when we were in Indiana in October, some friends had told us about a place that made unbelievable ice cream. It was October and cold, but the place had lines of people standing outside to get their ice cream. It was Ritter's Frozen Custard. We liked the uniqueness of the operation, the cleanliness, customer service.Then we tried the frozen custard and quickly understood why there were lines. John thought this might be the restaurant opportunity he'd always wanted. So we contacted Ritter's and now we have our own ice cream business. One of the most rewarding parts of owning our own Ritter's is working with our crew. They are proud of what they serve to our customers, they know that people love our products. Our first year was a bit of a learning curve, but it's a fun and friendly place to work. We also appreciate the corporate support. When you call, you don't talk to a machine. You can talk to real people who know your business and who are there to help you."
