Jeremiah’s Italian Ice Announces New CEO and Executive Leadership Team Appointments

June 29, 2023 // Franchising.com // ORLANDO, Fla. – Jeremiah’s Italian Ice is pleased to announce the appointment of Michael Keller as its new CEO and President. The brand has also brought on its first ever Director of Research & Development, named a new Director of Supply Chain, and promoted an existing leader to Senior Director of Franchise Operations as it prepares for its next phase of growth.

Litwack will remain involved in the business serving as brand ambassador, leaving Keller to oversee moving the brand, business, and franchise system forward. Keller brings to Jeremiah’s an extensive breadth of experience, having held numerous leadership roles in the industry, including CEO/President of Pearson Candy Company, Chief Marketing Officer of International Dairy Queen, VP of Marketing for Jamba Juice, and SVP of Marketing for Baskin Robbins USA, among others.

Adding to the strength of its leadership bench, Erin Buono joins Jeremiah's Italian Ice as its first ever Director of Research and Development, bringing over a decade of experience in leading breakthrough innovation and product design, formerly for Sonic Drive-In and Virtual Dining Concepts. Additionally, Adam Hing, formerly of Ruth’s Chris, Bloomin’ Brands, Darden Restaurants, and other chains, has been brought on as Supply Chain Director, while Julianna Voyles, formerly Operations Director at Jeremiah’s, has been promoted to the role of Senior Director of Franchise Operations.

Jeremiah’s strategic talent moves are not the only changes the brand is making. Sundell & Associates has been brought on to provide distribution/logistics support for the company’s supply chain while senior leadership has focused on a way to strengthen franchisor/franchisee relations with its recently launched Jeremiah’s Franchisee Advisory Council (JFAC). The council, which is made up of Area Representatives and multi-unit and single unit operators representing seven different U.S. regions, is designed to give franchisees a voice in shaping the future of the brand while collaborating with the Support Center team on decision making for the system.
