Italian Food...what a pleasure! Probably the favorite among many others from around the world and in this great Country! It is passion that is the driving force for Guido Tremolini and Simona Faroni, a young, stubborn, and determined couple that came all the way from Italy to the Beautiful Florida Emerald Coast at the beginning of 1996.
Guido and Simona had a dream and a goal to bring Authentic Italian Gelato to America. Why you would say? Don't we have ice cream already? Yes, but Guido and Simona would answer, "Didn't we have coffee here before? And now we have espresso, cappuccino, latte and so on!Same principles. Things, people, taste, and markets evolve...the whole world is always in evolution"
Guido and Simona decided to manufacture and distribute Italian Ice cream (Gelato) in America. During a visit to the Florida Emerald Coast in 1995 they fell in love with the area, and they chose Fort Walton Beach/Destin as the base of their American venture.
As they moved to the US, they soon realized that their dream was different from reality. A shocking awakening, like a cold shower, was brought by the language. They realized that language, culture, laws, regulations, and everything else were far different than they had imagined and envisioned; far different from their native country
