Honeysuckle Gelato is an artisan gelato and sorbet company located in Atlanta.
Honeysuckle Gelato has gained a fast-growing local following for its southern-inspired flavors, locally sourced and high-quality ingredients. The flagship Honeysuckle Gelato store is slated to open this Spring 2015 in Atlanta's premiere development project Ponce City Market.
Co-founder Jackson Smith returned to his hometown after living in NYC and began making gelato and sorbet in his parents' kitchen for family and friends but the demand kept growing. Soon his childhood friend, Wes Jones, and another friend, Khatera Ballard began talking about the idea of selling the gelato and sorbet. That idea became the Honeysuckle Gelato Food Truck and 4 years later Honeysuckle Gelato continues to grow throughout the South and beyond.
Honeysuckle Gelato Food Truck
The next step in the Honeysuckle Gelato story was the purchase of a 1992 Chevy Grumman Olsen ice cream truck. The Honeysuckle Food Truck allowed the company to gain a strong following and created countless creative and delicious flavors. The Honeysuckle Food Truck was one of the first trucks to be housed in Atlanta's first Food Truck Park.
Honeysuckle Gelato Flagship Store
Honeysuckle Gelato will open its first brick and mortar store this coming Spring 2015. It will be located in the newly redeveloped historic Sears, Roebuck & Company building, now known as Ponce City Market. Honeysuckle Gelato will be part of the City's growth of the Atlanta BeltLine.
