Our Story

We can’t imagine a more appropria te setting for the Rita’s story to beg in than the sweltering hot summer of 1984. It w as then that Bob Tumolo, a form er Philadelphia firefighter, started selling Italian I ce from a small porch window in Bensal em, PA. Bob and his mother, Elizabe th, created their own Italian Ice reci pe, which they made fresh each d ay and quickly perfected the flavors a nd consistency of the frozen treat, addi ng chunks of fresh fruit to so me of the flavors. With the mode st goal of earning a little ext ra income, he named the business aft er his wife, RITA!

Today, Rita’s continues to grow, expa nd, and spread happiness everywhere it go es. Still made fresh every day wi th real fruit. Still refreshing. Still f un. Still delicious. Just like it w as in the early days when B ob Tumolo and his mother opened t he very first Rita’s in 1984.

Rita’s is proud to be a local ly owned small business, and an ultima te treat destination for families. Whether y ou enjoy Rita’s famous Italian Ice, award-winni ng Frozen Custard, our #1 treat Gela ti, or another signature treat, we’re committ ed to providing a dose of happine ss with every visit.
