Villa Dolce Gelato Named to Inc. 5000

We are truly honored to announce that Villa Dolce Gelato was named to the 2017 Inc. 5000, an annual ranking of America’s fastest-growing companies.

Inclusion in the Inc. Magazine’s ranking is determined by revenue growth over the past three years, during which Villa Dolce grew over 100 percent.


At this time of growth and recognition, it’s inspiring to look back on our company’s story, one that begins with family, tradition and a love of authentic Italian gelato.

As brothers growing up in Rome, Monte, Giancarlo and Gianandrea spent their summers on the Adriatic coast enjoying the daily ritual of gelato.  After attending high school and college in America, they returned to Europe to play professional basketball.  It was there that they recognized the opportunity to bring the experience of authentic Italian gelato to the States, to recreate a product responsible for so many sweet memories.

Combining a commitment to quality and authenticity with a strong entrepreneurial and creative spirit, Villa Dolce opened their doors in 2001 servicing top tier restaurants and hotels in the Los Angeles area. Today, Villa Dolce owns a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Phoenix, Arizona, and has established nationwide foodservice distribution.

Our rapid growth reflects both our dedication to providing the highest quality products and services as well as our significant investment in people and manufacturing technology.

Thank you to our passionate sales team and to our customers for helping make this honor possible!
