Experienced husband-and-wife restaurant duo continue expansion of Florida’s favorite Italian gelato concept
Vero Beach (RestaurantNews.com) based in Orlando Jérémie’s Italian ice cream will soon be picking up its signature frozen treats in Vero Beach with the announcement of the opening of the brand’s newest location in the area. Scheduled to open at the end of April, the new Jeremiah’s Italian Ice will be located at 5931 20and Street in HomeGoods and Marshalls Plaza. The new store will be owned by husband and wife duo – Frank and Diane Prokop.
This is the first location the two intend to open in the region, with plans to open at least two additional locations in Port Saint Lucie West and Tradition in the near future. The new Jeremiah’s Italian Ice will offer customers indoor and outdoor seating and 3rd holiday delivery services in the coming months. The store’s location makes it an ideal family destination for local residents to enjoy a frozen treat of the highest quality.
Frank, originally from Orlando and connoisseur of Jeremiah, has been a fan of the brand since it opened in 1996. Diane fell in love with the Italian Ice concept while visiting Frank’s parents where her mother suggested she take him in his favorite dessert, that of Jérémie.
Since then, the Prokops have had a special place in their hearts for Jeremiah’s Italian Ice as it has become a priority for their family to visit on every trip to Orlando. The two have over 50 years of combined restaurant experience and are excited to bring a family staple to their own community in Vero Beach.
“During one of our many trips to Jeremiah’s, Diane and I heard they were franchised and decided to pursue this amazing opportunity because we knew it was for our family,” Frank said. “We look forward to bringing a family staple and tradition to our local Vero Beach community and being able to create new memories.”
Each Jeremiah location boasts an upbeat atmosphere full of vibrant colors and offers over 40 flavors of high-quality Italian gelato, as well as rich, creamy soft serve ice cream. Jeremiah’s Gelati, which includes layers of Italian gelato and soft serve ice cream, offers nearly limitless flavor combinations and is the star of their menu.
“We chose Jeremiah’s as our company for two reasons: ‘Amazing product and a people-centric culture,'” said Diane. “We not only wanted an amazing product, but we also wanted a brand we could easily connect with. Jeremiah’s Italian Ice is a dynamic, fun and high-energy brand that is focused on brightening people’s day. .
The Prokops say they are currently working to establish partnership opportunities with local schools, churches and community organizations. Jeremiah’s Italian Ice of Vero Beach continues to grow its team and is looking for high quality, energetic employees. The opening of the brand’s new location in Vero Beach marks the next step in Jeremiah’s Italian Ice expansion throughout the Sunshine State. For more information, please visit www.jeremiahsice.com.
