We searched and sought, but we could not find the perfect gelato. The centuries-old secrets of the Italian masters had been lost! Knowing that gelato should be magnificent, we set out to rediscover those Old World techniques and create a new standard of quality and taste with our own inspiration, ingredients, and creativity.


Gelato Fiasco Founders Josh and Bruno

Inspired by Italy. Perfected in Maine.

Here’s how:

The Maine Way

Here in Maine, we’re a little bit stubborn about perfection.

It’s about an insistence to combine time-tested techniques with new ideas and inspiration to keep on creating, keep on improving, inch by inch, until it’s just right. Humbled by the natural world that surrounds us always, we craft good things that last. Or at least until you finish every last spoonful.
