Well, there’s no complaining here at Caps. We have pretty much dodged a bullet with this warmer weather – which has us REALLY thinking about Spring!

2017 marks our 16th season. I still cannot believe how time flies. We’ve been so lucky and blessed with all our wonderful customers, the awards and recognitions we’ve received, and the trajectory to which our company has grown. This winter, we built out our new office and warehouse space in Mt. Prospect, hired some additional staff, and tested a variety of exciting new flavors. We’re ready to go!

As you all probably know, we opened back in 2001 assuming we would just have a retail space to service our Chicago area customer base. Then in 2008, we launched our Catering Division and today, I can proudly tell you that we have catered our ice cream to nearly 500 companies, weddings, and special events!

We are now on the precipice of another great turn for Caps – one we’ve been developing for several years. Our new venture will take us into the wholesale market. Our goal: Capannari Ice Cream becomes a household name everywhere!

So, we are strapping ourselves in for this ride – anxious and excited for where it will take us. One thing is for certain, Capannari Ice Cream will continue to serve our award-winning ice cream at our Mt. Prospect retail shop; we’ll continue to proudly host our 30 plus free summer events; and we’ll continue to thank our lucky stars to be doing what we love to do. Cheers to 2017… here we come!

Mark your calendars: Opening Day at 10 S. Pine is Saturday, March 18th at noon.

  • Remember to bring your own banana for 25% off a banana split
  • Rotator Flavors will be Irish Cream, Irish Coffee, Guinness, Licorice and Mint Cookies and Cream (with thanks to all our Girl Scouts)

See you on the 18th!
