About Us

Carmelo’s Italian Ice was named after our grandfather who came from Italy to New York in 1903.

It is an authentic style Italian Ice made locally here on the Gulf coast in the Great State of Texas. We produce three distinct brands of frozen dessert treats. Our Italian Ice is sold under our Carmelo’s Italian Ice brand. We produce one of most authentic gelato under our brand Gelato Blu. Our premium Ice Cream is sold under our brand Chuck’s Ice Cream. All three brands are manufactured at our facility in Houston, Texas.

Our location, in one of the fastest growing regions in the sun belt, is a perfect place to call home, because it keeps the costs down getting great product into your hands. For those outside of the immediate area, our distributor partner can accommodate product delivery throughout Texas, southern Oklahoma and eastern Louisiana.

Like all of our brands, Carmelo’s Italian Ice is made with high quality, fresh ingredients, in small batches using our tried and trusted recipes. This has enabled us to grow to be the largest producer of Italian Ice in Texas.
