Last week, I told all y’all about Hanna’s Original Italian Ice opening in Suite A5 at 14130 W. Indian School Road, west of Litchfield Road in Goodyear.
I had a chance to catch up with one of the owners, Jeff Lawson, a few days ago to get some more information and its hours of operation.
Lawson owns the ice shop with his wife, Stephanie. The couple moved from Illinois to the Valley to open the frozen ice business.
“My wife’s parents, my in-laws were in the Italian ice business. They had one named Stephanie’s, so we continued the trend out here where it makes sense because of the heat,” Lawson said.
Like Stephanie’s parents, the Lawsons also continued the tradition of naming their business after their daughter, Hanna.
Hanna’s Ice serves about 16 flavors of Italian ice every day, plus six rotating specialty flavors such as birthday cake, eggnog and pear.
