When Dominic Francesco Repici emigrated from Messina, Italy to America in 1911, he brought his family’s Old World recipe for Italian ice. At first, Dominic shared his family’s delicious Italian treat with friends and neighbors in South Philadelphia. Today, Dominic’s grandson, Frank, continues his grandfather’s passion for offering quality Italian treats. Franchising began in 2005, and today, Repicci’s is a 48+ unit franchise that owns and operates a manufacturing plant. Franchised deluxe Mercedes Benz food trucks were introduced in 2014 and have experienced great growth and represent significant future opportunity for the company. Based in Birmingham, Alabama, Repicci’s offers new franchisees the opportunity to own a business, selling delicious Real Italian Ice, Gelato, Italian-Roasted Coffee and Hot Chocolate at events of all kind.
