When and how did your business get started?

Mitchell's was established in 1931 in the South Shore neighborhood of Chicago and moved to Homewood in the 1970s. It used high quality ingredients purchased locally and continues this tradition today. The shop in Homewood continues to make ice cream and hand made chocolates on location today.

What is your business best known for?

Super Premium Ice Cream and decadent chocolate candies.

Why did you choose the town you did to open your business?

Mitchell's moved from the South Shore neighborhood of Chicago in the '70s. Many of Mitchell's customers were relocating to the suburbs as their families grew and Mitchell's chose to follow them.

What's something interesting about your business your customers might not know?

Mitchell's ice cream is featured at great restaurants such as Ed Debevic's, Edwardo's and Gino's East. This ice cream has been produced in Home Sweet Homewood for years!
