Katy residents can cool down this summer with freshly made ice cream from Bruster’s Real Ice Cream.

In a nutshell

Opened in April, Bruster’s Real Ice Cream of Katy brings at least 24 freshly made ice cream flavors to its store daily, according to the company’s website.

The Pennsylvania-based chain was started in 1989 by Bruce Reed, who was looking to provide fresh homemade ice cream to his community. Today, there are nearly 200 locations in the U.S. and Guyana, according to its website.

On the menu

With over 150 ice cream flavors in rotation, guests can choose from favorites such as:
  • Birthday cake
  • Caramel coconut cookie
  • Key lime pie
  • Southern banana pudding
  • Cotton candy explosion
Beyond ice cream, the store also offers sherbets, Italian ices and sorbet.

What they're saying

"The Katy community is known for its strong sense of unity and support, making it an ideal location for our first Bruster's," Katy store owner Jennifer Golden said in an email. "Residents are dedicated to fostering a friendly and welcoming environment, which aligns perfectly with Bruster's commitment to high-quality service and our pledge to support our community and give back whenever we can."

What else?

The Golden family also plans to open two additional Bruster’s Real Ice Cream locations.
