Orlando-based Jeremiah’s Italian Ice debuted in Pembroke Pines location on Tuesday, April 20. The new Jeremiah’s Italian Ice is located at 15820 Pines Blvd., within the Fountain Square Plaza.
Owners and husband and wife duo, David Hung and Johanna Tung, with the help of successful restauranteurs, Jimmy Tung and Johnny Tung of the Bento Group plan to take the South Florida market by storm, Pembroke Pines being the first of 18 locations they have planned. Being the hottest new franchise, their goal is to bring the COOLEST treats to South Florida. They are slated to open three to four Jeremiah’s locations per year.
Jeremiah’s Italian Ice is more than a business venture for David and Johanna. In fact, the two went on one of their first dates at the Jeremiah’s Ice of Winter Park location and fell in love with the brand ever since… A true Jeremiah’s love story. Their fond memories and passion for Jeremiah’s Ice has motivated them to align their lives with the brand through the opening of multiple locations, so others can create happy memories of their own.
“It’s our mission to share this amazing concept with the community. We’re so eager to give our employees and staff the opportunity to fully embrace entrepreneurship,” says Hung. “Not only do we strive to help our employees succeed in a work setting, but we want to see them have a positive impact within their community.”
Each Jeremiah’s location prides itself on having a fun atmosphere with bold and vibrant décor, offering over 40 flavors of refreshing Italian Ice and their indulgent Soft Ice Cream. The Jeremiah’s Gelati, which features layers of their smooth Italian Ice swirled with rich and creamy Soft Ice Cream, offers limitless flavor combinations and is the star of the menu. The Pembroke Pines location provides the guests and the community with flavorful experiences that allows them to get their frozen treats quickly and with the recommendation to savor it slowly.
“We put a huge emphasis on giving back to the community by sponsoring school events through our Ice Nights – where we donate a portion of our sales to support a local school organization,” says Tung. “This is what we find to be most rewarding.”
