The newly renovated restaurant, which sits at 2707 E. Silver Springs Blvd., has been painted in the bright colors that Jeremiah’s has been known for across its nearly 40 locations in the Southeast. The company is in the midst of opening new restaurants across Central and North Florida in the coming months, including locations in Deland and Orange City.

Bruster’s, which opened its sole Ocala location in 2006, was a favorite in the community, with a menu filled with milk-based ice cream and frozen yogurt. Conversely, Jeremiah’s  primarily focuses on non-dairy based Italian ice, in addition to gelati and soft ice cream.
