Buona & The Original Rainbow Cone

21591 N Rand Rd

Kildeer, IL 60047

Buona and The Original Rainbow Cone bring two Chicago, family-owned traditions together, combining Buona’s authentic recipe for Italian beef sandwiches and The Original Rainbow Cone’s world-famous 5-flavor “Rainbow Cone.” Four decades, three generations and several dozen restaurants ago, Joe and Peggy opened the first Buona restaurant in Berwyn, IL, which specialized in their authentic recipe for Italian beef sandwiches. Today, Buona is driven by multiple 3rd generation Buonavolantos and hard-working, dedicated employees who loyally serve Buona customers and surrounding communities. As a result, Buona is the largest family-owned Italian beef restaurant group and Italian beef producer in the country. Rainbow Cone was founded in 1926 by “Grandpa Joe” Sapp, who was never satisfied with just one ice cream flavor and stacked five delicious flavors on a single cone. The company remains 3rd generation family-owned including its original Southside location.
