Jeremiah’s Italian Ice Continues to Dominate the QSR Dessert Space
Rapidly Expanding Italian Ice Franchise Expects +225% Growth Since Franchise Launch
June 03, 2021 // Franchising.com // Orlando, Fla. - Jeremiah’s Italian Ice - a brand in the frozen dessert category - is continuing its growth in 2021. Already this year, the brand has successfully opened 11 new franchise locations, exceeding the 10 locations it opened in all of 2020, and is on track to open an additional 25 - 30 locations by year’s end. The brand is expecting a +225% increase in location count over the 22 it started with in 2019, when it first launched its franchise opportunity.
The brand is also proud to announce its #3 ranking as a top new food franchise in 2021 by Entrepreneur Magazine and its additional inclusion in Entrepreneur’s Top New Franchise List of 2021. Placement in Entrepreneur’s rankings is a highly sought-after honor in the franchise industry making it one of the company’s most competitive rankings ever. Entrepreneur ranks Jeremiah’s Italian Ice as a top franchise that has been operating five years or less.
Earlier this year, Jeremiah’s Italian Ice was also listed on QSR Magazine’s 2021 40/40 List as one America’s hottest fast casual restaurant concepts and its founder, Jeremy Litwack was recognized by Nation’s Restaurant News as one of the most influential restaurant CEO’s as part of its 2021 Reader’s Picks.
“We came into the year with big plans for development, eying new states and aiming to capitalize on our resiliency to the pandemic-related complications of 2020,” said Nicole DiPietro, Vice President of Jeremiah’s Italian Ice. “We are proud of the fact that our brand has reached every benchmark goal so far this year and our ongoing success has remained evident to potential franchise partners.”
To help guide the brand’s expansion, Jeremiah’s Italian Ice has partnered with Pivotal Growth Partners - an experienced team of franchise veterans who’ve led some of the top brands in foodservice to award-winning growth. Since partnering with PGP, Jeremiah’s has awarded nearly 170 franchise units across more than 65 franchise groups.
“Our ability to build on our established relationships early in the year has set us up perfectly for continued success throughout 2021,” said Cameron Cummins, Co-Founder of Pivotal Growth Partners and Chief Development Officer of Jeremiah’s Italian Ice. “We look to maintain our reputation as a serious force to be reckoned with in the QSR industry as 2021 continues.”
Each Jeremiah’s location boasts an upbeat atmosphere full of vibrant colors and offers over 40 flavors of indulgent high-quality Italian Ice, as well as creamy Soft Ice Cream. A synthesis of these two core products, the Jeremiah’s Gelati is the showcase of the menu with layers of Italian Ice swirled with thick, homemade Soft Ice Cream, offering nearly limitless flavor combinations. Jeremiah’s franchisees are embedded in the local community and are crucial to helping keep communities smiling through tough times.
“I am incredibly proud of the Jeremiah’s Frog Squad and am humbled to be part of a company that stays true to its mantra to ‘Live Life to the Coolest,’” stated CEO and Founder of Jeremiah’s Italian Ice Jeremy Litwack. “I look forward to continuing the brand’s momentum throughout 2021 and working with the team to provide our communities with the best frozen treats available.”
