Wedding Receptions, Festivals, Company Picnics, Holiday Parties, Business Meetings, Food Truck Events, Pop-up Food Events, Fundraisers, School Events, Fairs/Carnivals, Philanthropic Galas, etc. are all events that Primo Gelato will make world-class.
We’ll bring the Gelato…Cannoli… Macarons…Coffee…the delizioso delectables and cuisine!
Gelato- Our handmade artisanal all-natural authentic Italian Gelato hand-served from our portable catering Gelato case. We can bring up to 12 different flavors. We have the equipment, team and ability to serve from 50 to 5000, indoors or outdoors, from 1-hour to multi-day events. We have pop-up tents and a generator for outdoor events and festivals. If indoors, the Gelato case will require an almost dedicated electrical circuit (it pulls about 10 amps). Coffee pots will also require an additional almost dedicated circuit.
We can also bring our handmade Gelato Cannoli, Gelato Tacos, and Gelato Sandwiches, as well as:
Macarons- Our incredible French Macarons are sure to delight anyone. What about an unforgettable Macaron Tower at your event? We stock a 4-tier Macaron tower, with a carrying case, that will hold up to 37 Macarons, and a 1 to 10 level tower that can hold up to 237 Macarons: a gorgeous delectable Macaron Christmas Tree!
Cannoli- Traditional tubular pastry filled with Ricotta with chocolate chips, sprinkled with powdered sugar. Our local Italians tell us our traditional Italian Cannoli is as good as any they have ever had in Italy. With enough lead time, we can supply as many as needed.
Tiramisu- Our traditional espresso soaked lady fingers, marscapone, and cocoa is so good you'll dream about it. We can supply it by the piece or by the whole 9 x 13 cake.
Éclairs- Our Bavarian Cream filled French Eclairs are just unbelievably good.
Premium Drip Coffee, Hot Chocolate, and Hot Tea, as well as colas, bottled water, etc.
