Lisa’s Homemade Italian Ice first opened their doors on June 1, 2007. Two dipping coolers filled with delicious Italian Ice, high hopes and a lot of support from family and friends the business was ready to place its stake in the community.
Lisa and LuAnn began their fourth season of Lisa’s Homemade Italian Ice by kicking off the year with the newest line, POPCORN. It’s not average popcorn either. Again, with the help of friends, Mick and Nancy, they have created gourmet popcorn flavors that customers will crave.
In 2013, the business took a new direction. The storefront was closed and production of the product line for wholesale business began. Still located in Park Ridge, Il the focus of the business is on being suppliers for local eateries, wholesale, catering fundraising and special events. Lisa’s Homemade Italian-What’s Pop’n Gourmet Popcorn are preferred vendors for Victoria’s Banquets.
Lisa’s Homemade Italian Ice and What’s Pop’n Gourmet popcorn is still available in Park Ridge walk-in purchases. Crème of the Crepe (8 S. Northwest Hwy.) carries 8 flavors of Lisa’s Homemade Italian ice. Flavors are rotated to accommodate everyone’s taste. What’s Pop’n Gourmet Popcorn is available at the Pickwick Theatre.
