The Story

For our team leader and founder, Gelato means happiness.

Before Dolci Peccati®, she was a graphic designer and employee, dreaming with her own business. Her job was stressing and hardly motivating, but always found on ice cream and gelato the perfect way to be happy, relax, and melt her stress away.

She read everywhere: "Enjoy your life doing something you really love", so she thought: why not bring the same happiness to other people by serving them my own gelato?

She started telling her workmates, friends and relatives that she wanted her own gelato business, but they thought she was just really bored from her job and talking non-sense.

For an entire year, she wrote the business plan and with the help and support of her family, built the dream project from scratch.
Focused and determined, went to gelato school, learned the arts and crafts of making it, and soon she was ready for the big challenge.

Then, she searched the whole city for retail spaces, but then realized the truck was the perfect option to start, as it became the first gourmet dessert truck in Florida.
Finding it, fixing it, designing the exterior, building the interior with coolers, sink, appliances, and furniture were the hard but rewarding days of seeing the dream becoming a reality.

With a lot of mistakes and tryouts, but mostly because of her effort and truly believing in herself and her idea, Dolci Peccati® was born.
