the dream started when native austrian, “Spin” Zbynek Mlynarik introduced his american family to authentic italian gelato. their discovered love for gelato inspired “spin” to bring this european dessert to southern california. he passionately studied the “art of gelato” and invested himself in the training from some of the best european gelato masters. 

with “Spin’s” passionate intention to supply the food industry with the highest quality product, he went to work creating “my vienna gelato”. 

a couple years after, he was introduced to clothing and restaurant entrepreneur Gene Montesano. coupled with Gene's vision and branding expertise they together created “Black Market Gelato & Sorbet”. 

keeping with “Spin’s” original dream of producing the finest gelatos and sorbets possible, “Black Market" is now to be found in the finest restaurants, hotels, resorts, specialty markets and grocery chains. 

Black Market Gelato is based on authenticity, quality and is proud to supply a product to the food industry, which can only be found in an authentic Italian Gelateria.
