A vision from Italy

to the world

It was summer 2012 when a renowned bolognese entrepreneur, Gianluca Vitali, and a passionate master gelato maker, Stefano Franceschi, discussed for the first time a new, shared vision: exporting the true authentic Italian gelato to America. Only a year later, on December 7th, 2013, Stefano and his beloved wife Marcella successfully opened the first Gelato & Co. shop in Camana Bay (Grand Cayman).

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.

Quality is the brand’s driving value — not simply represented by the outstanding flavor and texture of our gelato but also by the structure of our supply chain. Differently from industrial ice-cream, which relies on automatized production and artificial preservatives, artisanal gelato is freshly made in-house daily, only with carefully selected natural ingredients.
