Rita’s Italian Ice Experiments With Delivery Service

Houston Location Sees Success with Delivery Services, UberEATS and Favor

HOUSTON, TEXAS (PRWEB) April 05, 2017 - A Rita’s Italian Ice location in Houston is pushing the envelope and experimenting with ways to deliver their tasty frozen treats to eager customers. Co-franchisees Michael Schwartz and Dan McCracken have teamed up with UberEATS and Favor Delivery to make Rita’s beloved custards, Italian ices and frozen treats available and convenient for those in the Houston area. Interested customers simply select their preferred app, search for Rita’s, place their order and a driver will pick up their treat and deliver it to them.

After a successful career working in Washington, D.C. as a photojournalist, Schwartz and his partner decided they could use a change of scenery. Upon moving to Houston, the couple quickly found themselves missing the taste of Rita’s Italian Ice. As self-proclaimed avid fans, the two missed the inviting atmosphere, the delicious treats and most of all the people of Rita’s. It was then that they decided to bring Rita’s to Houston and open their own franchise location.

“We never considered any other franchise,” says Schwartz. “We’ve always loved Rita’s, and there is just no other franchise that we are as passionate about. We truly love Rita’s and are excited to try out delivery for our customers! We love the idea of being able to bring Rita’s to your doorstep; with the help of UberEATS and Favor Delivery, that idea has become a reality.”

Rita’s Italian Ice has been serving families their famous custard, water ice and assorted frozen treats since 1984. Rita’s famous Italian ices are made fresh, on-site daily and are beloved by generations. For more information on Rita’s franchising, visit OwnARitas.com.
