Dominic Francesco Repicci immigrated to America in 1911 from Messina, Italy. Along with his family, Dominic brought the old world recipe for Italian Ice, that he enjoyed so much as a child in Messina, to South Philadelphia. At first, Dominic shared his family's Italian Ice with friends and neighbors, but soon others were requesting this Italian treat. It was not long before Dominic found himself busy, producing the family's unique product to meet the overwhelming demand in South Philadelphia. Dominic and the Repicci family continued to sell Italian Ice in the corner markets of South Philadelphia for decades.
REPICCI'S ITALIAN ICE is committed to the same quality product that Dominic created over 90 years ago. Dominic's simple treat has been cultivated into a thriving company that produces the finest quality Italian Ice, but more importantly, Repicci's Italian Ice is committed to you, our customers.
Repicci's is currently a member of the ARPA, TRPA, GRPA, FRPA, SCRPA, NCRPA and a national sponsor of Dizzy Dean Baseball, and Dixie Youth to name a few.
