Bruster’s was founded in 1989 by Bruce Reed whose passion for fresh high-quality food and stellar customer service runs deep. Bruce’s father, Jerry Reed, opened the legendary Jerry’s Curb Service in Bridgewater, PA in 1947 after completing a tour of service in the US Airforce. The quintessential car hop remains a staple in the Pittsburgh area.
In 1989, Bruce searched for a complimentary business to open on the land adjacent to his family’s car hop restaurant. After carefully crafting his rich and creamy ice cream recipe, he opened Bruster’s for his sister to run. Before long, Bruster’s became the preferred neighborhood ice cream store and Bruce started franchising to friends and family in 1993. While we’ve come a long way from those early days, we adhere to the guiding principles that have made Bruster’s the revered brand that it is today. We serve generous portions of our fresh-made ice cream to guests that we value like family.
