When a hot summer hit in 1984, Bob Tumolo wanted to help his neighbors cool down. But instead of crafting traditional ice cream or sticking a straw into a fire hydrant, he decided to formulate his own recipes for Italian ice, using fresh fruit to craft each batch. Ices in a wide range of flavors filled chilly cases at the original Rita’s Ice shop, and those recipes still form the treats at franchises across the country. The shops also offer up scoops of creamy frozen custard customized with toppings such as sprinkles, hot fudge, and caramel, or layer the custard with Italian ice to create the store’s famous gelati.
