Gelato in the Time of COVID-19

As a small business in the San Francisco Bay Area, we at Gio Gelati are feeling the effects of COVID-19 in our community. We are making the necessary changes to adapt to this new socially distant lifestyle. We wanted to take a moment to tell you about these changes and how they will impact you and your GIO gelati intake!

At GIO Gelati, we are serious about implementing the appropriate safety measures to keep both our customers and employees safe during this time. We are serious about your gelato needs as well, which is why we have adapted our business model with a variety of contactless delivery options to fit our new lifestyle.

Clean and sanitized gelato-making for your peace of mind

Although the FDA has reassured us that the virus is not transmittable through food, we believe that sanitization is key to protecting the health and safety of our community, including our patrons and employees. Our shops and labs are sanitized every morning and regularly cleaned and disinfected during the day. Our chefs regularly clean and disinfect all material used and wear masks and gloves during production. We are also asking any employee who has traveled out of the state or who is exhibiting any symptoms to self-isolate.

Contactless delivery to your doorstep

Stuck at home because of a worldwide pandemic? Craving something creamy and delicious? Tired of the same store-brand ice cream that for some reason you keep adding to your Instacart orders? Never fear! We are continuing to offer gelato delivery in San Francisco and San Ramon through Uber Eats, GrubHub, DoorDash, and Postmates.

Routine gelato delivery with our membership program

We have also assembled our new GIO Membership program to meet your shelter-in-place gelato cravings! Our membership program offers regularly scheduled, contactless gelato home delivery to zip codes in Marin County and the East Bay! That’s right, no need to even get off the couch! Well.. you might need to walk to the front door (or get your shelter in place buddy to do it for you!) To learn more about our membership program and where we deliver, check us out at GIO Membership page.

What we have to be thankful for

You! We appreciate you all taking the time to keep up with how GIO Gelati is reacting to coronavirus. Now more than ever, we recognize gelato as an essential food group, and we plan to keep sharing it with our community, near and far. Gratitude is a crucial aspect of life during shelter-in-place, and we can’t thank you enough for all of your support. We hope to continue bringing smiles to your faces and pints to your doorsteps. Stay safe in there!
