Jeni Britton Bauer

Restaurateur / Columbus, OH

Title: Founder of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams
Location: Columbus, OH

Why she's a big deal: Jeni opened Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams in 2002 and has been churning ever since. A previous hobby of blending perfumes and essential oils led her to incorporate scents that inspire her into specialty flavors like wildberry lavender or roasted strawberry buttermilk.
