Nice to meet you.
My name is Ülviyyə and I go by Uli. I am originally from Baku, Azerbaijan. At 16, frustrated by prospects in my home country, I found a full-time job that paid me $50 a month and gave me free dial-up internet that I used to apply to colleges in the U.S. My salary barely covered college application fees but I persevered. In 2001, I accepted a full scholarship from the Colorado College. This is where my journey in the United States begins.
The idea to open a gelateria sparked when there was simply no place to get gelato in Downtown Los Angeles.
While we haven't completely given up on the gelateria concept, we are now redirecting our energy towards online channels. When the time is right, we will open new stores. 😉
