NOT ALL ICE CREAM IS CREATED EQUAL.

One bite and you'll agree-Ritter's frozen custard is simply the creamiest, best-tasting ice cream ever to cross your palate. Ritter's is made fresh all day, every day, using high-quality dairy ingredients. We add just a smidgen of pasteurized egg yolk and don't fluff up our ice cream with a lot of air (like many other brands) to produce an amazing combination of flavor and texture. And to the surprise of many taste buds, Ritter's is only 10% butterfat, which is actually less than most competitors.

Testimonials

"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 - 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."
- John & Renee Dame

"I was a 'corporate America' guy, with the same company for 27 years. After all those years, I decided that I didn't want to live in the corporate world and began looking for franchise information on the Internet. The Ritter's system fits who I am. It's about customer focus, the best products, and the cleanest environment. I feel like the training and practical experience provided by Ritter's has made the difference in business management, labor management and much more. Ritter's has been very supportive of my business."
- Don Heyne
