Jeni Britton Bauer launched Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams in 2002, and a new Ohio phenom was born. The idea was simple: use the best, seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients and turn it into the finest hand-made ice cream ever tasted. Now, over a decade and ten stores later, Jeni is ready to evolve her brand even further.

You can now purchase your favorite Jeni’s ice cream flavors from vending machines at the Columbus International Airport. Available currently on Concourses B and C, a third is already scheduled for Concourse A.

“[This idea] seemed fun and unique,” Jeni’s CEO John Lowe affirms. “I am proud of Jeni and our team for the design of those. They are the most beautiful vending machines I have ever seen”.

The machines currently offer seven of Jeni’s signature flavors, including the wildly popular Salty Caramel and Dark Chocolate, in single-serve containers, as well as four of her indulgent macaroon ice cream sandwiches. They go for $5 for single servings and $6 for macaroon ice cream sandwiches, but to anyone familiar with Jeni’s unparalleled dedication to the art of ice cream making, it’s totally worth the price.

“We have a great team working hard to carry out Jeni’s original and continued dream to make the best ice creams possible… and to make the world a better place.” Lowe shares.

And although there are no immediate plans to bring Jeni’s vending machines to other airports around the region, she will be opening another store at Easton very soon.

A James Beard Award winner, Jeni continues to hone her skills and offer Central Ohio one of their favorite of life’s little luxuries. See what comes next at www.facebook.com/JenisIceCreams. To place an order or find a Jeni’s location near you, visit www.jenis.com.
