Gelato Fiasco: 2016 Mainebiz Small Company Business Leader of the Year
BRUNSWICK, Maine — Keeping up with Joshua Davis is a challenge. He darts through Gelato Fiasco’s Brunswick headquarters like he’s walking across hot coals.
In the past year, Mainebiz’s 2016 Business Leader of the Year in the small company category has grown Gelato Fiasco’s sales to nearly $10 million (double that of the previous 12 months), expanded its wholesale network to 4,100 supermarkets nationwide (from 600) and has overseen a $2 million expansion of the operations on Industry Road in Brunswick.

Yet the breakneck pace seems to suit Davis, 33, who continues to tweak the business and come up with new ideas. On the tour of Gelato Fiasco’s headquarters and plant, he races between cluttered old sections of the business and the gleaming, newly equipped new sections. Everywhere he goes, employees are asking him questions and he’s answering on his feet. A born entrepreneur.
