Jeremiah's Italian Ice is opening a South Tampa location

Jeremiah's Italian Ice started in Winter Park, outside of Orlando, in 1996.

Originally a Central Florida concept, the business has now expanded into Jacksonville, Coral Springs, Brandon and Carrollwood.

In October, owners will celebrate the opening of their 17th location with a new outlet in South Tampa.

"True Italian ice is richer and creamier than what people tend to think," said Devin Schneider, director of brand development. "It's refreshing, which is helpful in Florida, and when you look at other frozen dessert options, our price points are more appealing to families. You can treat a whole family for $10 to $15 depending on the size of the family."

Like the initial Central Florida locations, the new storefront will be a walk-up concept with a large patio space and umbrellas.

"The Brandon and Carrollwood locations have a more interior seating concept which is not the norm for the rest of the stores," Schneider said. "The South Tampa store will be more like our traditional stores."

All of the stores boast an upbeat atmosphere full of bright colors and serve Italian ice, soft ice cream and gelati, which is a layering of both products.

"We are excited to be in the new plaza with our neighbors Tijuana Flats, who we share a spot in South Orlando with as well," Schneider said. "Our Carrollwood location is next to 4 Rivers Smokehouse. Both (Tijuana Flats and 4 Rivers Smokehouse) concepts are from Orlando so it's fun to spread out with them."

Jeremiah's Italian Ice is aiming for a soft opening at 4051 S Dale Mabry Highway in October, followed by a grand opening shortly after.
