Video: A family tradition since 1914, The MilkShake Factory brings everyone to the yard

What started as a family chocolate shop in the South Side more than 30 years ago has transformed into a milkshake factory. Well, into The MilkShake Factory, where your ice cream is made fresh to order in-house. It’s become one of Pittsburgh’s fastest-growing local businesses, so we decided to pop into the original location for a treat (or two).

Fun fact: The chocolate has been made at “grandad’s factory” since 1914. And it’s even attracted some celebs — watch the video to see what Alec Baldwin orders.

Quotable: “We’re a chocolate family, so we’re very particular about what we produce.”  – Albert Fonticiella. Hmmm… Makes us think we probably can’t go wrong with The Chocolatier. Just sayin’. 😋
