Jeremiah’s Italian Ice will soon take over an east Ocala location made popular by another ice cream vendor over the past 15 years.
Bruster’s, which opened its sole Ocala location in 2006, will no longer operate the restaurant located at 2707 E. Silver Springs Blvd. Instead, it will be replaced by Jeremiah’s Italian Ice, an Italian Ice, gelati and soft ice cream vendor that has locations all throughout Central and North Florida.
The new Italian ice vendor has erected a sign and is in the process of renovating the building.
Bruster’s enjoyed success at its Ocala location for more than a decade, with customers from all over the city and Marion County frequenting the restaurant for its atmosphere and products.
Jeremiah’s Italian Ice comes to Ocala as one of three new locations opening across Central and North Florida in the coming months, joining others in Deland and Orange City. The three new restaurants will bring the Italian ice vendor’s total to 40 locations spread primarily across Florida and a handful of Southern states.
