CEO LUNCHEON WITH RICHARD GRAETER

AUGUST 24th – 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM

LOCATION:  HOTEL COVINGTON

Richard Graeter is the President and CEO of Graeter’s Ice Cream Company, which for four generations, has been handcrafting artisanal ice cream in small two-and-a-half gallon batches. Graeter’s is the last commercial ice cream maker that continues to use the time-honored French Pot process to freeze ice cream, which produces a singularly dense, smooth, and creamy product that has been acclaimed by celebrities and ice cream aficionados alike.

 Since becoming CEO in 2007, Richard has worked with his cousins and business partners, Chip and Bob, to expand Graeter’s to cities throughout the Midwest, opening stores in Cincinnati, Columbus, Dayton, Chicago, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh, as well as expanding distribution to grocery stores across the USA. In 2010, Graeter’s opened a new manufacturing plant that was named by Dairy Foods Magazine as its Plant of the Year in 2011. The new plant now runs 36 individual French Pot freezers (up for the original four) morning, noon, and night to keep up with the growing national demand for Graeter’s authentic French Pot ice cream.

In recognition of his leadership, Ernst and Young named Richard an Entrepreneur of the Year in 2014, and the University of Cincinnati’s Goering Center for Family and Private Business inducted the Graeter Family into its Family Business Hall of Fame in 2015. The Munchies, Peoples Choice Foods Awards, named Graeter’s as the Best Ice Cream in 2013, and again in 2015, and Graeter’s took home the trophy for the Best Sweet Dish at the Best of the Munchies SOBEWWF event in 2014.

Richard is a graduate of Miami University and the University of Cincinnati College of Law. He resides in Cincinnati with his wife Nancy, and their two children Will and Kate.
