We’re from Ohio… of course we love ice cream! That’s why we couldn’t be more excited that Johnson’s Real Ice Cream is opening up their fourth location on March 21st at 6 PM in Grandview Heights.

As someone who comes from a family that would get ice cream at least 3 times per week, this news is almost more exciting than when the Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Finals in 2016. Yes, drinking a large chocolate milkshake gives me the same goosebumps as hearing Mike Breen’s call of LeBron’s incredible block in Game 7.

Johnson’s Real Ice Cream has been around since 1950 thanks to Grandpa Johnson, and their traditions have now been passed down through 4 different generations of family. Their unique and creamy flavors have made Johnson’s quite famous over here at Step Out Columbus.

So, from all of here at SOC, thank you Grandpa Johnson for sharing your ice cream with us.
