Free Italian Ice treat today at Rita’s in Kettering

Rita’s Italian Ice will offer a free Italian ice treat starting at noon today, Monday March 20, at 3371 E. Stroop Road in Kettering.

The annual free-ice promotion is “always the busiest day of the season,” a spokeswoman for the Kettering business said.

Rita’s Italian Ice’s hours are noon to 9 p.m. daily until Memorial Day. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, the store extends its hours to 10 p.m., then returns to a 9 p.m. closing time between Labor Day and late October, when the store closes for the season.

Trevose, Pa.-based Rita’s, which operates more than 600 frozen-treat stores in the U.S., got new ownership in January when Argosy Private Equity and MTN Capital Partners LLC acquired a controlling stake in the chain from Falconhead Capital, according to Nation’s Restaurant News.
