Carmen’s Italian Ice in Rockville Celebrates 20 Years
This weekend, Carmen’s Italian Ice at 1115 Nelson St in Rockville is celebrating their 20th anniversary.
Carmen’s is advertising the event as their “Sort Of Anniversary Weekend” due the ongoing pandemic limiting the celebration.
Carmen’s will be giving our free bonbons with each purchase (while supplies last), and discounts on their “crave” cards.
Owner Jason Mandler told us, “I just want to give a huge thank you to all of our customers for all the love & support, especially after the last 12 months. The community has been so supportive over the years and it’s been extremely fun to watch the shop grow, as well as our customers & staff. We love this place, & our new home in Olney too.”
It started with a simple idea. Introduce homemade gourmet Italian Ice to the Washington DC area. Jason Mandler – a native of Parsippany, New Jersey – opened Carmen’s Italian Ice & Cafe in Rockville, MD in 2001. Tracing its roots back to Philly and South Jersey where this dessert has been a mainstay for years, Carmen’s offers homemade, gourmet Italian Ice in over 60 flavors. It also now offers frozen custard, shakes, and a toppings bar.
