@ Loves Local x Naperville’s Sweet Home Gelato = FREE SCOOP
@ Loves Local is heading to Sweet Home Gelato’s Naperville location! Join us Wednesday, May 5th from 2pm – 4pm CT for a FREE scoop of gelato. That’s right, @properties is picking up the tab.
Sweet Home Gelato’s hand-crafted, made daily gelato is quite possibly a work of art with the time and innovation put into it. While we count down the days until the event, we connected with owner Janice Bruksch to get the scoop on Sweet Home Gelato, their story, and how they come up with such striking flavors!
@properties: What inspired you to open Sweet Home Gelato?
Janice Bruksch: We used to be a franchise and were able to get out of that. We were excited to rebrand as a family owned and [Chicago-based] business.
@properties: We’ll be hosting @ Loves Local at your Naperville location. Was there anything in particular that drew you to this neighborhood?
JB: We LOVE the people of Naperville!! They are so kind and supportive, we are so proud to have a store here. Downtown Naperville is a “sweet” place to be!
@properties: Your menu is top-notch. With flavors like Chocolate Covered Strawberry, Pear Riesling, and Honey Lavender, how do you decide and/or create your flavors?
JB: My husband Kurt works with our Italian purveyors and our Head Chef José to keep us popular with new fun flavors! Each month we swap out a few for seasonal favorites like Key Lime Pie, Pumpkin, Peppermint, Chocolate Oreo. Watch us on social media to see what will be in next month.
@properties: As previously mentioned, your menu sounds amazing. In your opinion, what flavor is a must try?
JB: If you are old school and love Pistachio, ours can’t be beat! Marble Black Cherry is delicious and Salted Caramel is a customer favorite.
