About


Our Story 

I guess that you could say that my deep dive into gelato started one hot summer when I decided to make some ice cream in my at-home cuisinart. After following a simple recipe for some chocolate ice cream I was stunned with the results! Not only was it delicious, but is was creamy, rich, and delectable, proving that nothing beats the quality of small-batch.

Fast forward two years, when my father approached me with the idea of making an Italian ice cream, called gelato, and transforming it into a small business. I was excited for the opportunity, but at the time I felt like I would enjoy being a kid more than I would want to take on a business, especially one that would be more work than I could even image at the time. After declining the offer, I continued to make homemade ice cream and enjoy summer. After a long summer of making ice cream, the humid, hot weather had gone away and we entered into the cold winter months. I loved my homemade sweet treat so much that I continued to make it for myself and my family to enjoy. 

A few years passed, and once again, my father asked if I was ready to take on my own business venture.  My interest for ice cream transformed into a passion for artisan gelato-making, and so I was now ready to say yes! 

So after a long flight, we arrived in Bologna, Italy and prepared to take a gelato making class to learn the craft of authentic gelato making. I expected the class to be full of tasting gelato, coming up with flavors, and learning recipes. I did not, however, expect the class to be full of balancing ingredients, lots of food science, and learning about the anti-freezing powers of sugar!

The class was very intriguing and I learned a lot about how to make gelato my own craft. They taught me how to provide an authentic gelato that is creamy, smooth, and perfectly rich. The taste and texture difference between this and my homemade ice cream was unmatched! I didn’t think anything could have been better than what I had been making for years, but the class challenged me to think outside of the box, and my passion for gelato grew the longer I studied and learned this exciting art. 

After returning home from our gelato making adventure I was ready to produce the finest gelato possible! However, there are many other working parts that go into a gelato business. Things like investments, website design, product costs, ordering, and so much more are needed to make this business succeed. I am so excited to be able to learn all of these things about a business and to be able to implement them into my own creation. 

Creating a business is important to me so that I can serve others, further my education, and be able to make others happy through my favorite dessert, gelato! I am also looking forward to the opportunity to pay for my future college education through my gelato business. Gelato is not only something that brings me joy to create, but something that can provide me with the chance to bring joy into the lives of others as well! After all, my biggest desire through this is to bring moments of inspiration and happiness into the lives of others, and I am thankful for your support to make that happen! 

About Gelato

Most people don’t know, but gelato is different than ice cream! It actually has more milk in it and less air incorporated into it than ice cream. Because of this gelato ends up much more creamy and rich with less fat than it!

Our location 

We have actually purchased a vintage van that will be able to transport gelato to you wherever your heart desires (in KY) :) We will be at markets, music festivals, and will even have the ability to offer catering! 

Why do we need the money?

We need to be able to restore our vintage gelato van and be able to purchase the necessary freezer to store and serve our gelato! This is also an opportunity for you to be one of the first supporters of Moo Hoo Gelato and to be on the ground level of a completely new concept for Louisville!


STRETCH GOAL!

If we reach $18,000 then we will be able to supply MozzaPi with gelato. We just need to be able to purchase the necessary storage to serve it at MozzaPi!
