The Palazzolo's Difference
•Strong & stable business
•National & international capabilities
•50,000-square-foot HACCP run facility
•Made in small batches daily by gelato chefs in our kitchen – not in a lab!
•Great purchasing power for fresh ingredients direct from the farmers
Our Gelato & Sorbetto is made to order fresh from uncompromised and perishable ingredients.
We earned our position as gelato industry leaders by working from the ground up with top chefs. In 1986, Pete Palazzolo won over Michigan restaurateurs with samples of his artisan gelato and sorbetto, made fresh to order in small batches from uncompromised ingredients. Soon he was in Chicago, Philadelphia and NYC with similar success.
Palazzolo's has worked closely with America's top chefs ever since to provide customers the very best culinary product, and to make sure they have all the right tools for success. When we found that the only gelato pans available from Italy didn't meet our expectations, for example, we had our own custom-made in the U.S.
Because we handle every detail, you can focus on profiting from the wide appeal of our artisan gelato. Choose from over 600 flavors inspired by great culinary minds, or dream up your own specialty. We have the ability to spin a custom order as small as 2.5 gallons.
