Regional favorite restaurant brands, Buona, and The Original Rainbow Cone announced the grand opening of their newest dual concept location. Located at 21591 N Rand Road in Kildeer, Illinois, this exciting new store is set to open its doors to the public on November 15th, 2023.

The celebration will begin with a Benefit Night on November 14th from 5 pm to 8 pm, where all Buona and Rainbow Cone menu items will be available at half price. Notably, all proceeds from this event will go to CASA Lake County, an organization dedicated to advocating for abused and neglected children in the region.

Kildeer marks the ninth dual concept Buona and Rainbow Cone location, joining the ranks alongside existing locations in Darien, Skokie, Lakemoor, Mount Prospect, Harwood Heights, Glendale Heights, Bolingbrook, and Valparaiso, IN.

The dual brand concept, featuring Buona’s signature Italian beef sandwiches and Rainbow Cone’s signature ‘Rainbow Cone’ which is stacked with five colorful slabs of chocolate, strawberry, Palmer House, pistachio and orange sherbet flavors, continues to garner immense success. It has validated the Buonavolanto family’s belief that people relish the combination of these two beloved Chicago brands under one roof.

“We’re  thrilled to witness the ongoing success of Buona and Rainbow Cone in their dual-brand venture,” says Dominic Fallara, Vice President of Buona Restaurants. “The warm welcome extended by our communities to these two iconic Chicago brands coming together has been a source of great joy for us. “We eagerly anticipate the opportunity to introduce the Kildeer community to the magic of these cherished brands.”

Buona and The Original Rainbow Cone have exciting plans for the future, with new dual concept locations set to open in southern Wisconsin, Tennessee, Texas,, and the West Palm Beach metro areas in 2024. The company is also poised for national expansion into fresh markets, including Arizona and California.
