The Dawn
of the Ice Age

Brisk 1988 Jeremiah's Italian Ice started as an idea in the mind of founder Jeremy Litwack when he was a high school student selling Italian Ice in front of the Philadelphia Mint.

Chilly 1993 - 1994 After learning the craft of fine frozen dessert-making, Jeremy challenged himself to create a market for Italian Ice in a place previously unfamiliar with such a bold, refreshing product.

Cool 1996 With not much more than a map and a highlighter, Jeremy set out to create a market for Italian Ice in the Southeast. Arriving in Florida from the frozen north, he vetted sites one by one before launching the first Jeremiah's Italian Ice location in Winter Park in 1996.

Cooler 1997 - 2018 Over the next twenty years, Jeremiah’s cultivated a passionate following with our unbeatable frozen treats, five-star customer service, and vibrant, unforgettable brand.
