Jeremiah's Frog Squad in 2000


Leap Back Celebration

As Jeremiah’s Italian Ice approached the new millennium, Jeremy’s dedication to perfecting his frozen creations and delivering flavorful guest experiences, reached new heights. Mastering the craft of scooping up perfect frozen treats became more than just a skill; it was an art form that Jeremy passionately pursued, ensuring that every scoop of Italian Ice and every layer of Soft Ice Cream were scooped with precision, care, and love. And with a menu that encourages guests to layer their own unique flavor combinations of Ice and Soft Ice Cream in a Jeremiah’s Gelati, his loyal customers were becoming quite the flavor masters themselves!
