GIO Gelati’s 4th Birthday!

4 years doesn’t seem like a lot but well… a lot can happen in just 4 years. Let’s take a look back through time.

We started with the dream of bringing real artisanal Italian gelato to the bay area and we were welcomed with open arms! Now, after 4 years we feel very much a part of the community. We love seeing your faces every day and sharing a delicious part of Italy with you.

We’ve tried hard to stay true to our original vision of bringing only the very best to the table. Selecting our ingredients by hand and by seasonality to best enhance each flavor to its fullest potential. This may mean an ever rotating selection of gelato flavors but it also means the very best.

Our aim of keeping it healthy, organic and local means handpicking ingredients made in the California sun by local farmers. This paired with a dash of Italian ingredients creates flavors more rich than we can find even in Italy. It’s truly the best of both worlds.

We like to think we’ve created something special here. We traveled over land and sea to follow a dream and its still just the beginning. Our little business has a long way to go and we plan on adapting to the changing tides of the world. After all, how many gelaterias can say they have their own subscription program?

Cheers to 4 years and many more to come!

Thank you for all your support and best wishes!

GIO Gelati’s 3rd Anniversary!

From humble beginnings, GIO Gelati is excited to announce it’s 3rd anniversary. It’s been a wild first couple of years and here’s to many more!

GIO Gelati’s History

We began this adventure with the enthusiasm of kids.

Three years ago, we opened with the idea of bringing in artisanal expertise to make Italian gelato. California gave us what we hoped for and more. It has shown us all its natural power, offering ingredients that create gelato at a higher quality. This extraordinary pairing has allowed us to take gelato to the next level.

We began our adventure in San Francisco; Cow Hallow to be exact. The community welcomed us with enthusiasm and gave us the motivation to keep growing. Eventually we were able to open another store in San Ramon. An East Bay location we chose because of the lovely City Center Bishop Ranch.

In 2020, to partially compensate for the impact of COVID-19, we launched the GIO Membership program. This allowed us to deliver in the entire Bay Area and let us bring the joy of gelato to our customers.

The GIO brand was born from a love of the United States and a passion for gelato. The goal has always been simple: to put gelato in your hands and a smile on your face.

What does GIO stand for?

GIO stands for “Gelato Italiano Originale” and that’s just what we serve. Each flavor is crafted from scratch with all-natural, farm fresh ingredients and a passion for perfection.

Celebrate this special day with us!

We want to celebrate by thanking our fans with free gelato in our stores today from 12pm to 3pm. And any orders on the website will include a set of 6 bon bons for free!
