Rita’s Ice Custard Happiness

About Rita’s

From a small porch front in 1984 in Northeast Philadelphia and a seasonal phenomenon, Rita’s continues to see unprecedented growth as it continues to grow across the nation becoming a year round spectacular with its cult-like following. Rita’s “made fresh daily” Italian ice obsession is hitting everyone’s taste buds and creating a passion not just for the brand but the opportunity to become a Rita’s Italian ice franchise owner. It’s no wonder we are wired for success and fueled up for our expansion not only across the nation, but internationally we are making our presence known.

Rita’s franchisees come from all walks of life with one thing in common -the desire to choose their own destiny with a proven system providing on-going support; not to mention all having a passion for Rita’s cool treats and foregoing happiness. Rita’s is the #1 Italian Ice chain in America and has afforded many people just like you the chance to shape their own destiny. Becoming a part of the Rita’s franchise system provides you with unparalleled education and support.

Our training system consists of three levels of instruction including the opportunity to work side by side with current Rita’s owners in a fully functioning store. There’s no better time than today to begin evaluating a Rita’s opportunity near you. Why not come get your taste of success!
