• In 2008 Karime, a high school student at the time, decided to open an Italian ice business in Laredo, Texas. Two years later she moved to San Antonio, Texas to attend Trinity
University to study business management and marketing.
• The Summer before her last year of college, Karime and her husband Jose, also a college student, decided to continue their Italian ice business endeavor and renamed their business J&K Italian Ice.
• J&K Italian Ice, also called
water-ice is a part of the mobile food service industry. Italian ice is popular in the New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania area, but it is virtually unknown in the rest of the country. That is where we came in! San Antonio’s weather is perfect for our product since it is warm and humid most of the year. We provide San Antonians with a refreshing and delicious low calorie treat!
