South Side sweet spot The Milk Shake Factory is a 2014 Food Finalist for the Martha Stewart American Made program. The awards in categories including crafts, design, food and style honors the next generation of great American makers.
The family business has become an iconic Pittsburgh landmark, tempting tourists and locals alike with 55 different flavors of milkshakes, plus specialty sundaes and gourmet chocolates.
Owners Christian Edwards, Dana Edwards and Mark Edwards attribute their success to ambitious ancestors who opened a small chocolate shop and soda fountain in Lawrenceville 100 years ago.
“In 1914, our story began with two young Greek immigrants who heard stories of an America that opened its arms to many who hungered for success,” the owners write on their voting page.
