Jeremiah’s Italian Ice to open in Columbus, GA food hall

Almost a month after announcing a craft beer shop would be added to the list of vendors soon to be opening for business inside Banks Food Hall, the owners of the hall have announced another addition.

Banks Food Hall posted on Instagram on Wednesday that Jeremiah’s Italian Ice has committed to be a vendor.

The Florida-based company was established in 1996 and locations serve gelati, Italian ice and soft ice cream.

The chain has 33 locations in Florida, one in Arizona and one in Texas, according to its website. The Banks Food Hall booth will be the first Georgia location for the franchise.

Most recently, Maltitude joined on as a vendor in the upcoming food hall, with a venture called The Maltitude Bar at Banks, or MaltiTWO’d. Draft beer and wine will be served when the location opens.

Banks Food Hall is located between 11th and Bay Southern Table and Whitewater Express in Uptown Columbus. Development for the new business began in Dec. 2018.

The hall will hold up to 10 vendor booths. Concepts announced so far include a poke bowl stand called Poke Sun, an espresso bar and bakery from Fountain City Coffee Co. called The Bakeshop, and a taco stand from El Primo Mexican Grill, which is based in Hamilton.

In January, developers said they hoped to have the hall open this spring. They have not announced a new opening date in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Comments on the hall’s Instagram page indicate the announcement of an opening date is coming soon.

Banks Food Hall is part of the W.C. Bradley Company building and was once a cotton warehouse.
