Questions About the Coolest Concept

Is there really a market for Italian Ice?

Would we be here if there wasn’t? Our founder, Jeremy Litwack, perfected the process for creating smooth, refreshing Italian Ice in Philadelphia – where the frozen treat was already beloved. Later, with little more than a marker and a map, he decided to take on the challenge of creating a market for Italian Ice where there had never been one before.

He landed in Florida and, 20+ years later, Jeremiah’s Italian Ice has become a community staple. We’ve completely dominated a market once full of cookie-cutter frozen yogurt chains and more traditional ice cream shops. Italian Ice is a frozen dessert phenomenon with a massive cult following throughout the southeast and beyond. And interest in our unique product is only growing.

What sets Jeremiah’s Italian Ice apart from market competitors?

Our unique product, our following, our flavors, our brand, our vibe, our team, our values, our employees, our operations and procedures, our unit economics, our partnerships and – if you join our fast-paced growth in your market areayou.

How have you kept unit-level economics so strong?

We believe it’s through our culture. When you create a culture in which everyone involved is having fun while they work toward their goals, it makes a world of difference. But having an experienced team, the right brand, the right product, and a low-cost franchise investment have also helped tremendously.
