Ralph’s Italian Ices and Ice Cream is slated to open a second shop in Long Beach.

Follow Long Beach Patch on Facebook.

The shop is expected to occupy a vacancy at 8 W. Park Ave., according to an item on the City Council’s Jan. 21 agenda. The council voted Wednesday to hold a hearing on parking requirements for the proposed business at the Feb. 4 meeting.

Ralph’s has 80 locations across New Jersey and New York, including at 1090B W. Beech St. in Long Beach, adjacent to Beach Bagel and Deli, as well as in Island Park on Austin Boulevard and Oceanside on Lawson Boulevard. The shop’s menu offers everything from ices to smoothies to sundaes.


A MetroPCS mobile phone store last occupied the storefront at 8 W. Park. In April 2013, after the phone store had closed, a frozen yogurt shop was proposed for the vacancy but it never materialized.

At least it's not another bar...

I wish Ralph's would open up by next week. Going to be 8 degrees and I would love to have an ice after we take a dip in the ocean with other brave polar bears.

They will do well there w/ all the train traffic in the summer. Good luck Ralph's! Maybe a couple of jobs for local teens too
