[b]Wow! They are putting some in Northern Virginia, outside of DC. Exactly my neck of the woods! I have never even heard of Rita's before... I will *definitely* be trying it out -- thanks for the heads up!
I live in Ashburn and they're opening a Rita's in Ashburn Farm. We're pretty excited about it; though I wish we'd gotten a Rita's in our center in Brambleton rather than a Cold Stone Creamery.

Our Rita's has several new menu items and toppings. This is the response I got. The toppings that are nut free are the hot fudge and caramel sauce.
Hi Julie,
The blendini is a mix of ice, custard and either Nilla wafer cookie pieces or Oreo pieces. Our ice and custard are nut free. I am awaiting confirmation that the cookies are manufactured in a nut free environment. I am waiting for the same concerning the sprinkles. The toppings are confirmed nut free!
Thank you,

I was wondering the same thing you asked! Please post your response. They were very good at getting back to me when I had a question last Fall. I saw the Rita's custard pops in the grocery store and those turned out (At least at that time- should be reverified if anyone wants to try) to be safe also. Thanks!

DH has been encouraging me to get out more!

Well, think they would allow one of these to have building designed so that it had WINGS??! (Probably only way I could get my DH to consider this currently.) [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
I did go look at their website to read about franchise info -- if I recall correctly, the $$ amount they listed for initial cost to start up was in excess of $150,000. OOoooooch.
But I really AM interested in a franchise of some kind down the road (hopefully not too far) as many franchises have reduced costs offered to military. And I look forward to my DH's eventual job change. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
Something to think about and wish for . . . a Ritas next to an In-and-Out with a windowseat view of my favorite Sierra Nevada mountains.

OK -- Ritas with winglets and rocket boosters? Would that work?? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

There is a Rita's near us in East Meadow, NY. I went on the website and there are 2 near us I think the other one is in Bellmore. We will give it a try. I'm excited.

I don't know if it's still there, but there's also one in West Hempstead. Yeah, Rita's [i]rocks[/i].
