Category: Downtown Akron Blog

Akron has a new ice cream shop that is truly one of a kind. Chill is an Artisan ice cream shop located in Downtown Akron. The shop features a variety of over 50 flavors of hand-crafted ice cream and a plethora of toppings to chose from.

The shop was started by three Northeast Ohio brothers, Jeremy, Patrick and Zachary Jaworksi with the Downtown Akron location being their second store. Their goal is to create a fun atmosphere for people of all ages and to take local and fresh ingredients and turn it into unique flavors of ice cream.

Chill has a huge variety of flavors such as Rubber City Grape Grapenuts, Porch Rocker, Lavender Queen Bee, Jack and Coke, Fear the Roo, Brownie Points, Szaley’s Sweet Corn and many more. The interesting and eclectic flavors guarantee that you’ll find something you’ll enjoy as well as letting you explore a new palette.

Chill focuses on using fresh ingredients and giving you countless options while keeping it affordable. They have vegan options and many different sundae toppings to chose from if you wish to spice up the flavors even more.

A select few of Akron’s famous icons have their own personal flavors available to customers. Akron’s mayor Dan Horrigan, Akron Coffee Roasters, LeBron James and the University of Akron are a few examples who inspired the ice cream shop to create a custom flavor that represents them.

The grand opening of the shop occurred on Monday, September 12 at 12:30 p.m. The grand opening featured a ribbon-cutting ceremony and free ice cream for those in attendance. Chill is located at 21 Maiden Lane in the Historic Arts District in Downtown Akron. They are located next to Urban Eats and Musica and accessible from both High St. and Maiden Lane
