VALPARAISO, Ind., March 15, 2023 ~ Valparaiso, Indiana is set to welcome a new dual-concept restaurant featuring Buona's classic expansive menu and Rainbow Cone's iconic five ice cream flavors on a single cone. The new location is set to open Wednesday, April 12, at 2901 John Howell Drive in Valparaiso.

Joe Buonavolanto Ill, third generation Buona family member and VP of Franchise Operations at the company said, "Our Indiana communities share the same passion for Buona and Rainbow Cone as our incredible Chicago-area customers do. We welcome our Valparaiso neighbors to the Buona/Rainbow Cone family!"

Buona was founded in 1981 by Joe and Peggy Buonavolanto with the dream of bringing Chicago flavors and opportunity to their family and surrounding communities. The company has since expanded to 26 restaurant locations in the Chicago area and Northwest Indiana with the involvement of multiple third generation Buonavolantos and hundreds of local employees. As a result, it is now the largest family-owned Italian beef restaurant group and Italian beef producer in the country.

Rainbow Cone is a recognized Chicago tradition created in 1926 by "Grandpa Joe" Sapp who was never satisfied with just one ice cream flavor so he stacked five flavors on a single cone instead. The two Windy City icons joined together in 2022 to bring dual-concept stores to Chicago and other regions around the country.

The new Valparaiso location features drive thru and dual lane options with plans for kiosks in the future. Joe Buonavolanto Ill added that they have built a proven, scalable approach to expanding Buona and Rainbow Cone to new areas throughout America with industry-leading innovation, modern design, and the highest quality of classic Chicago flavors but it's their deep family and community roots that have truly powered their passion and success.

In addition to a grand opening of the new Valparaiso location, Buona and Rainbow Cone plan to bring food trucks to celebrate with area residents including giveaways, prizes and more.
