Couple Makes History as the First Black Franchise Owners of Jeremiah’s Italian Ice in South Carolina

Myrol and Kesha Frazier

Myrol Frazier and his wife, Kesha, have made history as the first African American entrepreneurs to own — not just one — but two Jeremiah’s Italian Ice franchises in South Carolina. Their two locations are in the cities of Greenville and Simpsonville.

Jeremiah’s Italian Ice features authentic Italian Ice, creamy soft ice cream, and gelati in a vibrant, fun atmosphere. It is the premier concept in the frozen dessert category, with over 100 locations open across the United States. It serves a variety of tasty flavors including sugar-free options and seasonal flavors, and will soon offer catering services and special “pup cups” for canine companions.

Kesha comments, “I always wanted to own a business but wasn’t sure what type of business until our friend introduced us to the Jeremiah’s brand. We spent a day at his location and experienced the day-to-day operations. After this, we were sold. From the lively branding to the vast array of delicious product flavors, we realized there is truly something for everyone here. We saw huge potential in bringing the brand back home with us.”

Myrol and Kesha opened their first location in 2022 in Greenville and opened their second location just nine miles away in Simpsonville in April 2024.
