Bruster's Real Ice Cream Opens First International Location

PITTSBURGH, May 24, 2012 // PRNewswire // -- Bruster's Real Ice Cream opened its first international location in Georgetown, Guyana. W&T George and Company Ltd. signed a Master Franchise Agreement with Bruster's Real Ice Cream.

The leaders at W&T George understand the restaurant industry, the importance of product consistency and quality service."

Bruster's sales team Todd Bilovus and Marcie Chong, spent 2 weeks in Guyana helping the team prepare to open. "It's wonderful to see a big smile cross a child's face the first time they taste our product. We have already seen interest in our more unique flavors like Mango Ginger –made with fresh fruit from the market," says Bilovus.
