Rita’s, an Italian ice and frozen custard shop, will bring fruit-, chocolate- and soda-flavored refreshments to Katy Park this fall.

Zooming in

Franchisees Chris and Brianna Samanns said they chose this location because of its proximity to Katy Park, schools and churches. The location is also adjacent to the new H-E-B in the Market at Katy Park.

What else?

The Samannses are also planning to open a second Rita’s shop in the Bellaire/Meyerland area at 5429 S. Braeswood Blvd., Ste. A, Houston. They expect to also open the location this fall.

Rita’s also has a location in the Heights at 2802 White Oak Drive, Houston.
