A vision from Italy

to the world

In the summer of 2012, the renowned Bolognese entrepreneur, Gianluca Vitali, together with a passionate master gelato maker, Leonardo Ragazzi and a group of experienced Italian managers, contemplated a new endeavor that would shape their lives: exporting genuine Italian gelato to America.

A year later, on December 7th, 2013, Gianluca and his dedicated team achieved the successful opening of the inaugural Gelato & Co. shop in Camana Bay (Grand Cayman), marking the beginning of their American gelato venture.

Where we are.

Where we will be.

The union between ambitious youngsters and visionary entrepreneurs has allowed Gelato&Co to expand its format across the USA. Today, Gelato & Co counts 8 stores across North and Central America – with many more planned openings arriving soon. Our Investors and managers share a common dream: becoming global ambassadors of quality and authentic Italian gelato across the world.
