Rita’s Italian Ice of Kent hosts grand opening Monday

Rita’s Italian Ice of Kent celebrates its grand opening on Monday, March 20.

Fifty lucky guests who sign up for the Rita’s Birthday Club and bring a donation to support the Kent Food Bank will win free Italian Ice for a year. The store will collect donation items for the food bank throughout the day.

The new store – in the Marketplace at Lake Meridian, 12950 SE Kent-Kangley Road, Kent – will join more than 600 Rita’s locations throughout the country as they celebrate the first day of spring by giving away free Italian Ice all day. This family-favorite tradition, now celebrating its 25th anniversary, makes its debut in Washington and offers Kent-area residents a free cool treat to welcome the spring season.

Rita’s started in 1984 in Trevose, Pa., and has more than 625 stores in 19 states. Kent is its first location in Washington. The chain also has locations in China and India. Rita’s offers frozen treats, including its famous Italian Ice, which is made fresh daily with real fruit, available in more than 60 flavors.
