Ohio transplants may soon get some of their state's famed ice cream shops in Chicago. Cincinnati-based Graeter's Ice Cream, a well-publicized sweet treat brand with more than 40 retail locations in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, is hoping to open some in Chicago, according to the Cincinnati Business Courier. CEO Rich Graeter is reportedly coming to town this week to scout four possible locations for scoop shops.

Graeter's, founded in 1870, is available in thousands of markets around the country, but the Chicago shops would be its first locations outside the Cincinnati tri-state region. Stay tuned to see where exactly they end up.
