Pete and Mike

We grew up in University Heights and graduated from Cleveland Heights High School. Mike graduated from Ohio State with a degree in philosophy and an interest in ice cream, Pete from Kent with a degree in psychology and interests yet-to-be-determined.

We started Mitchell’s in 1999, thinking it would be a fun way to spend our lives—working with each other and passionately handcrafting delicious ice cream. And great fun it has been! We work creatively with exceptional people, from the local farmers we buy our ingredients from to the enthusiastic servers who greet our customers in our shops. We serve kids, families, seniors, and everyone in between—all of them in a good mood when they see us, and we get to do it all in the city we love.

Mike is the ice cream chef at Mitchell’s. Pete is the taster-in-chief and operations guy.

Together, we strive to continually learn and grow in ways that make our ice creams ever more delicious and wholesome, and to continually contribute to our Cleveland community.
