A Chicago institution

Just take it from our founder and creator, “Grandpa Joe” Sapp. He was never satisfied with one simple flavor.

When Joe and his wife, Katherine, opened the first Rainbow Cone in 1926, their signature cone featured five delicious flavors. Chocolate, Strawberry, Palmer House, Pistachio, and Orange Sherbet were sliced (not scooped) into one smile-sparking cone.

Little did Joe know, his creative combination of flavors would become a Chicago staple for decades and decades to come.

Grandpa Joe’s tradition of togetherness, hard work, and creativity will always be true to who we are.

We know that our locally owned family business delivers a different level of service than the other guys. As we grow and build new ways to experience Rainbow Cone, we’ll keep serving our communities with a smile — wherever that smile might be.
