Edwards Dessert Kitchen reopens its doors in the North Loop

May 2, 2022 —
It’s official! Starting May 5, we are reopening the doors to the ultimate dessert destination — Edwards Dessert Kitchen. Located in the North Loop neighborhood of Minneapolis, this is the place where guests can experience first-hand our passion for deliciousness with unique, indulgent desserts.

Led by our Executive Chef Jasmine Weiser, Edwards Dessert Kitchen  serves up modern dishes, such as Stonefruit Pavlova, Raspberry Mousse, Lychee Lime Celebration Cake and Rocher Mousse. The menu features made-to-order options and prepared confections for every dessert occasion.

Unique to the food industry, Edwards Dessert Kitchen serves as a satellite innovation space for Schwan’s Company. As the market leader in the frozen-dessert category with brands like Edwards® desserts, we will use consumer insights from the dessert destination as we continue to seek out creative ways to bring innovation and further growth to the frozen-dessert category.

"In 2020, we, like many establishments, closed the doors to our dining area due to the rising safety concerns surrounding COVID-19. Fortunately, we are able to officially announce that we are reopening our doors and welcoming guests once again,” said Weiser. “While we continued serving Edwards Dessert Kitchen fans through catering over the last two years, our team is excited to invite our community back into our indulgent dessert destination because there is nothing we love more than to see the faces of people as they enjoy our specialty dessert creations.”

As an accompaniment to the dessert offerings, the menu also includes locally sourced coffee from St. Paul-based True Stone Coffee Roasters and a spirits-forward, carefully crafted cocktail menu by the one and only, Mr. Aynsley Jones.

“We are extraordinarily excited to see Chef Jasmine’s culinary excellence and creative vision come to life as we reopen Edwards Dessert Kitchen,” said Stacey Fowler, executive vice president of research and development at Schwan’s Company. “As part of our ‘Only One’ value at Schwan’s, we believe in striving to be the first, best or different in all that we do in the marketplace. Chef Jasmine does this for dessert, as she continues to push culinary boundaries, while elevating her signature artistic style — bringing together complementary colors, textures, and ingredients to create desserts that are unique, beautiful and delicious. They are sure to satisfy all the senses.”

Edwards Dessert Kitchen will be open Thursdays and Fridays from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. To learn more about Edwards Dessert Kitchen visit or follow us on Facebook and Instagram @edwardsdessertkitchen.

Employees volunteer for pizza drop at Mary’s Place


April 15, 2022 — Team members based in Bloomington, Minnesota, recently volunteered to drop off a donation of Red Baron® pizzas from Schwan’s Consumer Brands to Mary’s Place in Minneapolis.

Mary’s Place is a transitional apartment complex that is part of the Sharing & Caring Hands nonprofit organization. The apartment building features 100 fully furnished apartments for homeless families with children that provides safety and hope as they work to transition toward a life away from homelessness.

Employees who volunteered their time to pick up and deliver the pizzas included Dottie Woodruff, Jeff Gauthier, One Kim, Aiden Sung, Youngsik Shin and Stella Choi. Community Relations Manager Theresa Zaske also thanked Doug Ohmann and Nichole Sundstrom as well as the teams in transportation and cold storage facilities for helping to coordinate the pick-up of available product.

The initiative was coordinated by Schwan’s Engagement Council, which is an employee-led group that is dedicated to increasing employee engagement and celebrating successes as one Schwan’s team. The employee group is committed to educating employees about our business, supporting our community through volunteer efforts, driving collaboration across business units through activities and encouraging employees to make a personal commitment to health and safety.
