Rainbow Cone has been a staple for generations in Beverly, where crowds flock to it at 9233 S. Western Ave.
Joe Sapp and his wife, Katherine, founded Rainbow Cone in 1926 – featuring a signature cone with chocolate, strawberry, Palmer House (vanilla with cherries and walnuts), pistachio, and orange sherbet. They were sliced rather than scooped.
“Little did Joe know, his creative combination of flavors would become a Chicago staple for decades and decades to come,” Rainbow Cone says on its website.MORE NEWS: Leroy Long Charged With Shooting On Dan Ryan Expressway Near 87th Street
