Rita’s “Cool Treats” in Nolensville!

Living in Nolensville is just that much cooler now thanks to the new Rita's!

Ritaโ€™s Italian Ice shops are plentiful in the northern portion of the U.S., but not so in our area; you just donโ€™t see them all that often. Thatโ€™s why itโ€™s exciting that local parents Trisha and Jason Rubino opened a Ritaโ€™s in Nolensville recently. Located at 7171 Nolensville Pike, the storefront location is bright and cheerful, and your kids just may get to meet the Ritaโ€™s mascot when you visit. But the big draw is the fresh and crisp Italian ice and the smooth, delicious custards. Williamson Parent got to sample an icy blue raspberry โ€œcool treatโ€ at a recent middle school football game โ€” the Rubinoโ€™s are making a point to bring the treats out into the community, so if you see their table, make sure you get a treat (samples let you decide which flavor to spring for; we also tried the cherry and the Florida orange, but their menu changes regularly as ices are hand-mixed daily).
Ritaโ€™s isnโ€™t just about the delicious treats, though. Fundraising opportunities are available; simply message the Rubinos with your inquiries. And Tuesday nights at Ritaโ€™s means Classic Cars social night. Bring your classic car, truck or hot rod and enjoy cars, custard and country. The fun kicks off at 6 p.m. In addition, Ritaโ€™s has a Rewards App so you can keep track of your treats โ€” visit on Tuesdays for an extra โ€œpunch.โ€
Support this delish new business when youโ€™re in the Nolensville area and watch for them at Williamson events. Learn where theyโ€™ll be and whatโ€™s going on at the store by โ€œLikingโ€ Nolensville Ritas on Facebook.
