As a former Philadelphia resident it was a big surprise to find out that Rita’s Italian Water Ice started opening locations in SoCal. Rita’s in Philadelphia are only open during spring and summer months and then goes into hibernation at the beginning of fall.
Back in Philadelphia Rita’s were starting to open up shops in malls, which is a great business idea but opening shops in SoCal seems like a great business strategy.
For those who don’t know What SoCal stands for it is for Southern California. The weather here ranges anywhere from 100+ in the summer to 50 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter months.
So if you are in SoCal look for a Rita’s location near you and be pleasantly surprised. As a Rita’s faithful from Philadelphia I was pleased to know the taste and quality remain the same even across the country.
