Company Summary

When Josh and Bruno founded Gelato Fiasco, it was simply a gelato shop. But soon people began asking if they’d ever be able to find our gelato at their local grocery stores. We began hand-packing pints at our Brunswick store and selling them to local markets eight at a time.

Today, we still make small batches with incredible care and hand-pack each pint. But now we're sold in 5,000 grocery stores across the US -- and we're just getting started.
