Uncle Louie G Florida Franchises
We are pleased to announce that as of January 2019, we have full-time people and more importantly, a significant “frozen” and “refrigerated” warehouse in Florida! But don’t worry…all of our Italian ice and ice cream products continue to be made in New York City, with genuine New York water*, just as Louie G did in Brooklyn sixty years ago! We ship to Florida our ices, ice cream, and even cones, which we store in our new warehouse until you call for a delivery, which we immediately get to your store in our refrigerated truck!
* New York City drinking water is world-renowned for its quality. Each day, more than 1 billion gallons of fresh, clean water is delivered from large upstate reservoirs—some more than 125 miles from the City—to the taps of nine million customers throughout New York state.

Our gourmet Italian Ice & Ice Cream has been featured nationally, via Shark Tank, Newsday, Good Day New York, the View, Fox 5, and more.
What Makes Uncle Louie G Special
As Americans are aging and watching their fat and dairy consumption, our product fits those needs.
Recipes for true Italian ices have been passed down from generation to generation, often by immigrants to the New York area. It’s no surprise that 2 of 3 of the largest companies are based in the New York area. The others are located in nearby Pennsylvania. And of the three, only our products are still made with genuine New York City water!
Investment is low. Our ideal footprint is less than 1000 square feet. No preparation is involved. If you can make a milkshake, that’s about it. If you can’t, we’ll teach you!
Margins on our 2 1/2 gallon tubs are very profitable.
No royalties! We don’t want to know your numbers! You don’t report to us. You’re your own boss. It’s capitalism at its best!
Even in cold weather areas, we have 50 stores. Most close for a few months in the winter, and yet still make an adequate return on the less than $100,000 investment. In Florida, where store growth has tripled over the past two years, it’s a 12-month season.
You only need to manage a few employees, and we’ll teach you that!
Particularly in warm weather states where outdoor events take place daily, our trailer product is unique. For a modest price, we can get you in business for all types of events!
