Iorio's Gelato Blog

Gelatista of the Month: Andrew

Favorite gelato flavor?

One of the first flavors I tried was Zuppa Inglese, and we’ve been exclusive ever since.

How long have you been on the Iorio’s Team and what keeps you coming back?

I was a walk-on Iorio when I was sixteen years old, in 2013. I have done a lot of growing up behind the case and under the supervision of my dear boss, Nick. He’s really the reason I wake up in the morning and keep coming back.

When you’re not scooping gelato or brewing espresso, what can we find you doing?

I am a 2nd Degree Black Belt in Tang Soo Do, so if I’m not at the shop, I am either teaching or doing my own training. I am shooting for a spot on Team USA to compete in the London World Championships in 2018!

What’s one thing about you that customers would be surprised to know?

I have a girlfriend.

If you could create one dream gelato flavor, what would it be?

I’ve been begging for years for a Cola sorbetto. I don’t think I would order it much, but I can’t think of a better flavor to have on a 90 degree summer day.
