A new Graeter's Ice Cream drive-thru has opened at Jungle Jim's in Fairfield.
And the shop (an inside dining room will open eventually) offers a full menu of ice cream and candy items.
"When Jungle Jim's made a decision to expand their location, they invited Graeter's to be a part of the expansion," says Tim Philpott, VP of marketing at Graeter's. "We were excited to join forces with an iconic retailer and provide their fans with our local, handcrafted, French Pot ice cream."
Similar to the beloved animatronics and statues scattered inside and outside of Jungle Jim's, this Graeter's also has its very own whimsical — and very large — icon.
"Our drive-thru features a one-of-a-kind 13-foot Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip ice cream cone that is clearly visible from Route 4," says Philpott. "It’s quite the site."
In addition to the drive-thru option, Graeter's is offering a limited selection of items for local delivery through the Graeter's app (available via Apple or Google Play).
And although this new location may boast some convenient modern amenities, the mission is still the same.
"We love serving ice cream to families and friends, and have been doing it for over 150 years in the Cincinnati area," says Philpott. "We hope fans, friends and guests in and around Jungle Jim's will have the same, fantastic experience they get in all of our current scoop shops throughout the Midwest."
Graeter's Jungle Jim's is located at 5440 Dixie Highway, Fairfield. More info: graeters.com.
