Cold Stone Q&A with Ruth Spiegel- Get The Inside ScoopIce cream, in its various iterations, is a beloved treat around the world. It’s not gender specific, nor age specific. It’s not unique to a specific race, religion or ethnicity. The target market for a high quality product is huge and we wanted to be on the ground floor when Cold Stone Creamery came to Florida.

2. What do you love most about Cold Stone brand?

The tag line for Cold Stone Creamery is “The Ultimate Ice Cream Experience.” Cold Stone Creamery ice cream is a high quality product “made fresh daily” in each store across the globe. Our objective is to engage every customer in their “Cold Stone” experience by having them select the ice cream flavor and “mix-ins” and have them watch as their customized creation is prepared just for them on our frozen granite stone. The best part for us is to watch as our guests thoroughly enjoy their personalized creation.

3. Why is Cold Stone ice cream special and different?

Our ice cream is made fresh daily in each store from the highest quality ingredients. Many of our guests are purists and enjoy their ice cream unadorned. Many others tap into their creative urges and enjoy an opportunity to design a creation that delights their palate. With over 15 ice cream/sorbet/yogurt flavors and 30 mix-ins available daily,  the creation combinations are almost infinite! Innovation is king and Cold Stone consistently introduces new flavors and ice cream products.
