"We are proud to introduce Rita's Italian Ice to Canada," said Jonathan Fornaci, chief executive officer of Rita's.  " Steve McDonough and his franchise team will enable us to expand Rita's brand to many more fans throughout North America."

Rita's the "Home of Cool Treats" offers many delicious options in addition to Italian Ice, including Misto® Shakes, a combination of Italian Ice and Custard blended into a cool, creamy, delicious customizable treat, a personalized Blendini®, which is Frozen Custard and Italian Ice with your choice of mix-ins such as Snickers® blended together or, a Gelati, your choice of Italian Ice layered with creamy Frozen Custard.  Other tempting treats include Rita's twist on an old-fashioned favorite, Milkshakes, made with Rita's famous Old-Fashioned Frozen Custard and are available in a variety of flavors, topped off with whipped cream.
