Capannari Ice Cream opened it's doors in June, 2001 — the combined venture of Jim & Meg Capannari and Ken & Katie Dix. They have catapulted their gourmet ice cream shop to one of Illinois' most respected small businesses, earning the honor of "Best Ice Cream in Chicago" from Chicago Magazine only 1 year after opening.
Capannari Ice Cream is a fixture in the community. Every year, Capannari Ice Cream hosts a multitude of fun and creative events in their Mount Prospect shop, from 50's night, to Ice Cream Idol, to Mooo-vie nights. They support local schools and children, with events like the annual Easter Egg Hunt, Coolest School Contest, Report Card Day, and Concerts in the Park.
