Our Story: Family-owned and operated for over 67 years!

In 1950 our Grandpa Johnson opened our first location in Bexley, Ohio and he has since been an inspiration to three generations of ice-cream makers. He started Johnson’s Real Ice Cream with a commitment to quality, community, and the simple joy of a cold ice cream cone (or pint, or sundae—there’s no wrong way to eat ice cream).

Each flavor we make is a testament to the things he loved and a reflection of his personal quirks. He was a good man with a contagious laugh who worked hard and always had fun. Thanks for keeping his legacy alive by enjoying his famous flavors!

Important Message from Johnson's

We would like to take a moment to address a divisive social media post from last evening regarding a wholesale customer of ours, Sunbury Fish and Chicken. At Johnson’s Real Ice Cream, we believe in the values of diversity and inclusion and are against any form of discrimination. For that reason, we have pulled our product from this shop and they will no longer be a customer of Johnson’s. In addition, we have asked them to take down the unauthorized signage depicting the Johnson's logo.


Johnson’s Real Ice Cream is a family-owned business and the community has supported us for 70 years. We are grateful for all of our customers and we will not stand for discrimination in any shape or form.


Sincerely,

Matt and Jeff Wilcoxon
