The owners of Mango Rita’s in Fort Myers Beach Florida took over on June 3,2019. Jacinta and Jason Ingream come from a small town in Pennsylvania called Greencastle. The area is steeped in civil war history as Gettysburg PA and Antietam Battlefield are near. Jacinta formerly ran a restaurant, nightclub and large event center in Hagerstown Md. Jason has a history in the truck industry having been an engineer at Jerr-Dan, a tow truck manufacturer and for the last 15 years at Volvo Powertrain, where all Volvo and Mack truck engines are made.
They had planned on moving to Florida for many years as this was their favorite place to visit. Normally they would visit either Disney or Indian Rocks. After searching that area for an opportunity Jason came across Mango Rita’s. He booked a flight and for the first time visited Fort Myers Beach. Instantly after coming across the arched Fort Myers Beach bridge and being greeted by the incredible view of the Gulf of Mexico they knew they were in an island paradise.
They had been telling their daughters they would wait until they graduated school, to move to Florida. Two of their daughters Sheridan and Hailey, graduated high school on Saturday,June 01,2019. Four hours later, they were making the 24 hour drive to Fort Myers Beach.
Jacinta and Jason wanted to bring with them Eastern shore Maryland style seafood offerings. As they noticed that the gulf coast menus lacked this. They are excited to share their amazing journey in life with every guest. Their great customer approach is simple, treat everyone like they are family. You will be greeted and invited to join them in great food and entertainment. They want to hear your story and will share theirs with you.
The Mango Rita’s logo is a character based on Jason. The co-workers at his job and many friends call him Superman. He asked a co-worker who is a talented artist, Larry Stine, to come up with a character. What you see is the result of his work.
Come out and join Jacinta, Jason and the entire staff at Mango Rita’s. We all look forward to creating a lasting relationship.
The second chapter in this story begins with Hurricane Ian on September 28th, 2022. Upon leaving the day of the storm we returned to find our home severely damaged and Mango Ritas destroyed. Our dream had just been wiped out by this massive storm. We had evacuated to the east coast and as soon as we had internet service that evening we began our search for a new location. It lead us to a place we drove by every day on the way home. We knew in one instant our wonderful staff and musicians deserved a new home. We began our new Mango Rita’s Rhythm House adventure on November 16th, 2022. Come share in the great music and fun atmosphere. We look forward to meeting new friends and welcoming our beach friends to our new home. We are truly blessed to be able to share our story and continue our journey.
