After graduating from UCI in 2016 with a business degree, I opened Eiswelt Gelato with one specific reason - to bring something from my hometown in West Germany to my new home in California. My parents opened a supermarket and a restaurant while we lived in Germany.



Growing up, every Sunday would be family day in my household, which included getting gelato with my parents and chatting about our week. In 2008, my parents and I moved to the United States. I realized that dessert here was extremely overpriced compared to Germany and it inspired me to open a dessert shop of my own!



In 2015, I finally decided to fulfill my dream and opened Eiswelt Gelato. It was a huge step for me and I definitely faced many obstacles, but I would never change a thing about the experience. I want to thank all our new and loyal customers for supporting us! I hope that our cute charatcer-shaped gelato puts a smile on your face!
