Columbus-based Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams will soon open its first scoop shop in Cincinnati.

The popular gourmet ice cream shop will be opening inside of the Factory 52 development, according to Factory 52 real estate managers PLK Communities.


Factory 52 is a 20-acre mixed-used Norwood development project announced in 2020, according to developers Viox & Viox.

It is slated to transform the old U.S. Playing Card factory into a massive space for residential, retail and office use. They promise “community gathering spaces” as well as a three-story parking garage. The website says residents will have access to amenities including a food hall, event lawn, pickleball court, dog park and resort-style swimming pool.

In December of last year it was announced that Asheville, North Carolina-based Hi-Wire Brewing was going to be coming to Factory 52 sometime in the fall of this year.

According to PLK Communities, the Jeni’s scoop shop is set to open in early 2023.
