The Stotis family opened George’s in 2009. Their late father George, was a businessman in Andersonville for 30 years. He sold vintage furniture and clothes, but his customers always came back for hours of heartfelt conversations and connections.
The owners wanted to continue being part of the vibrancy of this great community and an ice cream shop was born!
We serve award winning delicious super-premium ice cream and our own hand-dipped chocolates and desserts from local Chicago bakers and coffee brewers.
George’s is a place to gather with family and friends to enjoy delicious ice cream creations, desserts, conversations and friendly connections. We are a great neighborhood shop and have grown to become a Chicago favorite.
Here at George’s we are uncompromising in our customer service and always focused on serving the best products.
Ice cream is often the star of our wonderful childhood and adult memories. We hope you come in and gather with old friends and family or meet some new ones and continue making wonderful memories.
