Rita's Italian Ice Opens in Chelsea
Last year, we reported that a Pennsylvania-based chain of Italian ice shops was going to expand into the Greater Boston area and elsewhere in Massachusetts in a big way, and now we have learned that it has opened a location just north of the city.
According to an article from Eater Boston, Rita's Italian Ice has its grand opening in Chelsea today, with the store moving into a space in the Mystic Mall by Everett Avenue and Spruce Street. As mentioned earlier, it looks like a total of 30 shops could be coming to the region over the next several years, though no specific locations have been given at this point in time.
EB states that a location of Rita's Italian Ice had once been in Salem, but it shut down several years ago.
The address for Rita's Italian Ice in Chelsea is 170 Everett Avenue, Chelsea, MA, 02150. The website for Rita's can be found at http://www.ritasice.com/
