A Family Tradition for Decades
Tony Strollo brought his family recipe from Italy to Long Branch as a child. He made it in his garage and hauled it to the beachfront in an old bus he converted. For decades, Strollo’s meatball and sausage sandwiches, hot dogs, and his homemade Italian Ice were part of the fabric of summers at the Shore. When families came to Long Branch, they splashed in the Atlantic Ocean, tanned on the beaches, and had at least one of Strollo’s Lemon Ices.
Tony passed his secrets along to his son Ray, who carried on the family tradition in the ‘70s. In 1976, Ray opened his first store and called it Strollo’s Lighthouse. The high demand forced Ray to find a way to make more of his homemade Italian Ice without losing any of the great flavor. He recruited a friend in the soft-serve ice cream business and together they came up with the means to stay true to the recipe, make it as a liquid, and have it stream out of a soft-serve machine with brilliant results. Their ingenuity produced a very consistent product that could be made much faster than by way of the old scoop method. Ray then added Orange, Cherry, and Chocolate to go along with the traditional Lemon…and Strollo’s Lighthouse soon became more popular than ever!
To staff his growing store, Ray hired his nephew to man the counter. Little did Ray know that his 13-year-old nephew, Jimmy Callano, would eventually take the Strollo tradition to the next level.
