General Info

When our founder James Papageorge bought Gayety's Chocolates and Ice Cream Company in 1920, it was located next door to the Gayety movie theater in South Chicago. The movie theater is gone. However, the ice cream parlor continues to thrive as a third-generation family-owned gathering place for neighbors, friends, families and colleagues.
