Florida-based Jeremiah’s Italian Ice franchise continues to expand its nationwide presence, aiming to end the year with 11 total openings.
Jeremiah’s has built its presence in its home state of Florida, while also entering new markets like Texas, North Carolina, Arizona, and Georgia. The company has opened nine new franchise locations in 2020, with an additional two locations projected to open by the end of the year. Of these 11 total openings, five opened outside Florida, with new locations opening in McKinney and Temple, Texas, Chandler, Arizona, Columbus, Georgia, and Matthews, North Carolina.
“Right after launching Jeremiah’s franchise opportunity, we were flooded with people wanting to become Jeremiah’s franchisees,” Cameron Cummins, co-founder of Pivotal Growth Partners and chief development officer for Jeremiah’s Italian Ice said. “The demand continued, even as Covid-19 struck, which is a testament to the concept’s solid business model and its experienced leadership team. The team’s ability to implement new processes and procedures and to adapt and pivot when necessary helped our concept continue to thrive.”
Since launching its franchise opportunity, Jeremiah’s has awarded over 130 units across more than 50 different franchisee groups, and an additional 162 units awarded across six area representative entities. In 2021, Jeremiah’s is slated to open at least 30 new franchise locations.
