Jeremiah’s Italian Ice Opens First Location In North Carolina

New Jeremiah's location in Matthews, NC

Orlando-based frozen treats franchise concept continues rapid expansion across the United States

Matthews, North Carolina – Jeremiah’s Italian Ice – the premier concept in the frozen dessert category – is continuing its rapid national expansion and is bringing its first location in North Carolina to Matthews. The new location, which opened its doors on October 20, is located at 3501 Matthews-Mint Hill Rd at the intersection of Matthews-Mint Hill Rd and Idlewild Rd in front of the Food Lion Center.  Jeremiah’s is incredibly excited to share its Florida-favorite brand with the Matthews community.

Jeremiah’s Italian Ice has been a Florida favorite since its founding in 1996. After launching its franchise opportunity in late spring of 2019, the brand garnered even more popularity as it began developing locations throughout Florida, but also in new markets across the country. At every Jeremiah’s location, customers experience the brand’s signature upbeat, family-friendly atmosphere and over 40 flavors of delicious, high quality Italian Ice and creamy Soft Ice Cream. Jeremiah’s signature Gelati features a layered combination of Italian ice swirled with homemade soft ice cream, which offers customers a nearly limitless amount of flavor combinations.

Throughout the pandemic, Jeremiah’s Italian Ice has placed their focus on maintaining the health and safety of its employees and customers at all times. The new location will open with stringent safety protocols and additional operational procedures in place to ensure proper social distancing and the safety of its staff and guests.

While Jeremiah’s continues its Florida expansion, the brand is positioned to become the premier frozen dessert franchise concept of the new decade, expanding its footprint across the Southeastern United States. The brand is on track to have 125 stores open or in development over the next two years.
