Bruster’s Ice Cream Set to Make Las Vegas Debut

Bruster's offers 30-plus flavors of ice cream, sherbet and sorbet

Of all the Pennsylvania exports that could show up in Las Vegas – Eagles fans, weird liquor laws, New York City envy, Four Seasons Total Landscaping, snow – we lucked out with the pending arrival of Bruster’s Real Ice Cream. The Bridgewater-based ice cream parlor chain, which boasts nearly 200 locations in the U.S. and abroad, is about to post up in the desert. The first location is set to debut in The Lakes community in November, and more will open in the future.

What makes Bruster’s so hot? It’s been a minute since our last visit to Keystone State, but we’re told it’s the freshly made flavors and homestyle dairy base – “prepared from a proprietary recipe using traditional, slow-kettle processing” — that does the trick. Bruster’s also boasts of a delivery process – “cow to cone” for the uninitiated — in which the dairy is sent directly from Pennsylvania to Las Vegas. 

Bruster’s comes to Las Vegas via a Las Vegan, Dave Soumas, who fell in love with the flavors and decided to open up a franchise in the desert. His first store will include a walk-up window with an outdoor “mini park” for patrons to sit and enjoy their waffle cones (or milkshakes, or sundaes, or “candy filled blasts”), as well as drive-thru service for those of us in a hurry.

The Bruster’s parlors will also have rotating menus of 30-plus flavors of ice cream, sherbet, and sorbet, all of it conceived from a book of more than 150 artisan recipes.  

Enjoy it while practicing your “Pixburgh” accent.
