Queen Creek couple Mark and Becky Leonard will fulfill their sweet dream of opening a Jeremiah’s Italian Ice in Arizona (the treatery has a cult-like following in their previous home in Florida). Construction on the shop located at 20784 E. Victoria Lane. Suite 107 is currently underway and targeted to open by mid-May.
We fell in love with Jeremiah’s Italian Ice when we were living in Florida. It’s more than a frozen dessert shop, it’s a place where people come to connect and celebrate the sweet moments of the day.– Becky Leonard
The new dessert shop is 1560 square feet and will feature a mix of indoor seating with couches and tables, plus covered tables and chairs outdoors. One of the walls in the shop will feature a vibrant mural designed and painted by Jesse Perry, a local award-winning artist. Hiring for the Frog Squad will begin in early April.
The Leonards will be looking for enthusiastic, customer-driven servers and shift leads to start training before the store opens.
Jeremiah’s offers more than 40 house-made flavors of Italian Ice, along with its rich and creamy vanilla and chocolate Soft Ice Cream. The dessert shop’s trademark treat is the Gelati, which perfectly layers the Italian Ice with Soft Ice Cream, mixing and matching flavors in an endless variety of combinations. Jeremiah’s encourages free sampling of their tasty treats to allow customers to discover their favorite flavor combo.
Jeremiah’s also has a J-List Rewards loyalty app, where customers earn a free treat when they sign-up. The app alerts customers of special offers and gives them access to Jeremiah’s Secret Menu.
It’s been a long time in the making. We are excited to finally be able to alert the Queen Creek community that we will be opening soon.– Mark Leonard
Jeremiah’s Italian Ice is located on the Northwest corner of South Ellsworth Road and East Victoria Lane, next door to Five Guys. To learn more about Jeremiah’s Italian Ice visit the store’s Facebook page or Instagram page.
