Why some flavors are not available to GIO Club members?
Wondering why you can't find your favorite gelato flavor at our stores or in teh delivery options for GIO Club members? While big commercial gelato and ice-cream brands have an assortment of long-lasting flavors always available regardless of the season, at GIO Gelati we prepare fresh batches of gelato every week. We always start from fresh ingredients. The ice-cream you buy at your local supermarket might have been sitting on the shelfs for a few months. At the opposite, the gelato you get from GIO Gelati in never older than a few days. This makes our gelato tastier and healthier.
Is GIO gelato different from ice-cream or other gelato?
Our authentic Italian gelato is different from any other gelato or ice-cream. We make gelato exclusively at our artisanal production lab in San Francisco on Union Street. We never use preservatives, and we pride ourselves in making no compromises on quality by preparing and serving only fresh, just made gelato. For example, if one week we do not find perfectly ripe nectarines at the market, we simply halt the production of nectarine gelato.
Because of our artisanal production, we can only produce a limited set of flavors every week. We committed to offering 15+ different flavors to our GIO Club members. Most of the flavors are always available, like stracciatella, while others are seasonal flavors available only for a limited time. Sesonal flavors are explicitely marked in the online menu as "seasonal".
In our stores in San Francisco and San Ramon, we can afford to be slightly more flexible with the flavors. Our gelato chef like to add or remove flavors on a daily base to explore new flavors and to check people reaction. The planning required by our subscription program doesn't allow the same freedom.
Can I pause my subscription and skip one or more deliveries?
You can certainly pause your subscription as long as you like. Our online system has some limitation, but we always try to accomodate our members requests. If you are not able to pasue your subscription online jus send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do it for you.
Is my Credit Card safe in your hands?
We do not store your credit card number directly. For all your online payments we use STRIPE one of the most popular and safe services for credit card payments. We do not have visibility on your credit card number.
