That’s right, Cincinnati finds itself in the top 100 cities for business and careers. This is likely due to the city’s low unemployment rate, which is two percent below the national average, its low cost of living, and high job growth. Indeed, Cincinnati scores better than the national average in almost every major economic indicator, according to Forbes.

Over the Rhine Historic District

Cincinnati is home to not only a bustling economy, but also a thriving historic district in the Over the Rhine part of town, which is known for its historical architecture. Indeed, Over the Rhine is one of the largest historic districts in the nation, according to the National Register of Historic Places. Cincinnati’s oldest church, Old Saint Mary’s, which was built in 1841, still stands in the district. In fact, worshippers can visit Old Saint Mary’s to hear one of the Sunday masses spoken in German. In addition, there are numerous old brewery buildings, as Over the Rhine is believed to have the highest number of nineteenth century breweries left standing in the United States. Most of these breweries fall on or near McMicken Avenue, earning the street the nickname “Brewers’ Boulevard.”

Marble Slab Creamery History

specializing in super-premium ice cream with the finest ingredients since 1983

Originally, the franchise was invented by chefs Penn and LaPage, who changed the way we enjoy frozen dessert with the ability to create your own concoction. Their “Frozen Slab” was the first, the original, and soon they began franchising this concept. In 1986, one of the first franchisees built a franchising concept that provided other franchisees a comprehensive business venture. In August of 2010, Global Franchise Group, LLC acquired Marble Slab Creamery. We now have more than 350 open stores around the world.
