Kimmer’s Ice Cream is the brainchild of Kimmer Elam, who fell in love with ice cream as a little girl, and never looked back. Now she is sharing her love with you, inventing new gourmet flavors and making classic favorites fresh and homemade daily. Whether you want an exotic scoop of Aztec Hot Chocolate, a decadent bowl of Red Velvet Cake or a kid’s cone of vanilla decked with rainbow sprinkles, your taste buds are sure to tingle! We offer several flavors every day, and welcome your ideas, We never stop inventing, perfecting and testing, so you’ll discover favorites and new finds every time you visit! We use only fresh dairy ingredients from very happy local cows, and locally-sourced natural flavors you can pronounce, including fresh fruits, nuts, syrups and extracts, as well as cookies and brownies from Moveable Feast Geneva, and espresso from neighboring Arcedium Coffee in St. Charles. Every flavor is hand-crafted in small batches and frozen right here, so you know it’s good and fresh!
Kimberly Elam is an Iowa Hawkeye and graduate of Ice Cream University who grew up in Batavia and has been savoring all things ice cream since she was a toddler. She worked in an ice cream shop all through high school and studied business and entrepreneurship in college. Her professors told her “do what you love” and she took them literally, attending Ice Cream University right after her graduation from Iowa. She bought the former Gramps Frozen Custard in St. Charles in October 2010 and has been making ice cream history ever since. Kimmer was recently honored with a Young Entreprenuerial Excellence Award by the Daily Herald Business Journal, and completed the venerable Penn State Ice Cream Short Course over winter break.
