A Kuwaiti businessman on vacation in Tucson happened upon Frost A Gelato Shoppe and went home with a new business venture.

Haitham Alghunaim said he will open the first Middle Eastern outpost of Frost in August. Over the next two years, he hopes to open four or five in all in Kuwait, Jordan, Lebanon, Oman and elsewhere in the Middle East.

“We have an amazing opportunity. ... All those countries are places that people travel to from all over the world,” said Jeffrey Kaiserman, who founded Frost A Gelato Shoppe with his partner and fellow UA grad Stephen Ochoa in 2005.
