Repicci’s Real Italian Ice Franchise
Repicci’s is made up by a family of nearly 50 franchisees across the United States.
Our company has authentic Italian roots. When Dominic Francesco Repicci immigrated from Messina, Italy to America in 1911, he brought his family’s Old World recipe for Italian Ice. At first, Dominic shared his family’s delicious Italian treat with friends and neighbors in South Philadelphia. It wasn’t long before Dominic found himself busy producing his family’s unique product to meet an overwhelming demand.
Now and the Future
Dominic’s grandson, Frank, continues Dominic’s passion for offering quality Italian treats. Frank opened a manufacturing plant in Tennessee in 1998, which initially supplied concessions for the Chattanooga parks and recreation facilities. The popularity of Repicci’s Italian Ice grew rapidly throughout the Southeastern United States. Franchising began in 2005, starting out as a part time opportunity using tents that would pop up at spring and summertime events. These trailblazers continued to gain loyal fans for Repicci’s one-of-a-kind products, and in 2014 it was decided to include mobile trailers in our franchising model. Now, Repicci’s products are manufactured on a larger scale in state of the art manufacturing facilities and distributed across the country, enabling the company to meet a nationwide demand. We now have franchises nationwide, where Repicci’s products are enjoyed by many people in many locations. Today, Repicci’s is the nation’s leading mobile Italian Ice & Gelato franchise.
The future lies in taking our product to customers where they are, rather than waiting for them to come to us. We offer new franchisees the opportunity to own a business, selling delicious Real Italian Ice, gelato, roast coffee and hot chocolate and imported Italian teas at events of all kinds. From fairs and festivals, to sporting events, to rodeos, reunions and even weddings, a Repicci’s Italian Ice & Gelato food truck is suited for any occasion or event. Our Future – The benefit of food trucks is our ability to bring Repicci’s Real Italian Ice products anywhere. The future of Repicci’s also lies in technology. We now offer mobile text marketing to provide you with up-to-date offers, specials, new flavor alerts and even where our trucks will be parked. Repicci’s information is available online through our website and mobile enabled website, our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts. Repicci’s Italian Ice & Gelato Franchising is better than a shaved ice, frozen yogurt franchise or ice cream business. Why? Our old world recipe and one-of-a-kind products will set you apart from the competition.
