About Us

How It All Started

Italian Ice Life started as a mobile food trailer business in Houston, Texas, offering a refreshing on-the-go concept at events like open houses, school events, baseball games, concerts and festivals, and more. Today we offer the best selection of Italian Ice and Fresh Squeezed Lemonade to adults, kids, and organizations nationwide!

As the business gained local popularity, Italian Ice Life realized the true potential was in franchising, and now offers an expanding program that provides franchisees with initial hands-on training at its Houston headquarters, local on-site guidance to get up and running, and ongoing support to ensure every Italian Ice Life location is a success!

Franchise Facts

Becoming a franchisee with The Italian Ice Life requires a modest investment of approximately $30,000, which covers the initial franchise fee, equipment, supplies, and inventory. This cost efficient start-up is designed to provide aspiring entrepreneurs with an affordable and accessible pathway to business ownership!
As a franchisee with The Italian Ice Life, you will receive comprehensive support to help you succeed in your business. The franchise system provides initial and ongoing training programs, marketing materials, and operational support to ensure that franchisees have all the tools they need to operate efficiently and effectively. A minimal workload also means that the business is designed to function smoothly day to day without the regular required presence of the franchisee on-site.
