Zina Horton has a big, sweet dream to take her business and its signature product global. Horton owns Zammuto’s, a longtime food stand that specializes in desserts and soul food at 725 Kent St. It’s best known for granita, a semifrozen treat — think Italian ice or sorbet — available in nine flavors, including lemon and blue raspberry.
