Jackson Smith, Khatera Ballard, and Wes Jones have been friends for years. What started out as a conversation has turned into an 18-person craft gelato manufacturing company that is growing rapidly. In the past four years they have grown to manufacture and distribute to more than 100 restaurants and 85 retail locations across the Southeast. Additionally in the past six months, they signed a deal with Delta to put their gelato in the first class section of cross country flights and have opened their first retail location in Ponce City Market. Those two deals alone have doubled their manufacturing output.

And watch their video as they talk about their vested interest in giving back to their community, including hiring staff from the City of Refuge and donating more than 13,500 meals to the Atlanta Community Food Bank in the past six weeks. https://youtu.be/CerVs5AgywE
