Dessert shop specializing in Italian ice and soft-serve opens in Keller
A frozen dessert shop is opening in Keller and the timing could not be better: Jeremiah's Italian Ice, the Florida-based chain specializing in Italian ice, will open at 2122 Rufe Snow Dr. #102 on May 25.
The location is from local entrepreneur Steven Dubberly, who previously ran a law practice where he worked with small businesses. A release describes how he discovered Jeremiah's: He was introduced by his girlfriend Alicia Mouser, who took him there on one of their first dates. Dreamy!
Founded in 1996, Jeremiah’s Italian Ice has more than 100 locations throughout Florida, Arizona, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Louisiana, Colorado, Nevada, Alabama, Tennessee, and Texas.
They're known for their high-quality Italian ice, available in more than 40 flavors; and their creamy soft-serve ice cream. Combined together, they result in indulgent treats such as the Jeremiah's Gelati, which features layers of Italian ice and ice cream.
Flavors include watermelon, horchata, passion fruit, mint chocolate chip, mango, cookie butter, sour green apple, black cherry, banana, cake batter, and cotton candy.
The stores also boast an upbeat atmosphere, with vibrant colors.
Dubberly has another location in development in Saginaw, with a plan to open at least five locations across Dallas-Fort Worth.
There are currently five locations in the DFW area including Lewisville, McKinney, Frisco, Burleson, and Melissa, with three others in the works.
Dubberly will be running the Keller location with family and friends, a close-knit group who wanted to become involved in something together. That includes girlfriend Alicia, his parents, and his friend and business partner Aubrey McPherson.
"I want to work in a place that brings a smile to my customers’ faces, and Jeremiah’s is the perfect place to do that," Dubberly says. "Keller doesn’t have anything like Jeremiah’s in the area, and I strongly believe we can become a real staple."
