Boise, ID (January 17, 2023) – Black Market Gelato, a gelato and sorbet company, officially broke ground on their newest production facility in Boise. The facility will stretch over 90,000 SF and is expected to have over a $4 million investment in the next three years. Within the first year, they are expected to create 12 jobs, and reach up to 30 jobs in the next two years.
Black Market Gelato has been making gelato for over 10 years. “We started in a small little room making one sample at a time for local restaurants in the food industry,” said Black Market Gelato Owner, Zbynek Mlynarik. Rising quickly as the premiere gelato maker for the food industry, they were able to expand their B2B partnerships across 5 states.
Zbynek, originally from Austria, moved to the Boise area about two and a half years ago and fell in love with the area stating that it felt like home. “It felt like the right thing to do to bring the operations over to Boise and be able to share my product here with our community,” said Mlynarik. “In this facility we plan to expand our production on our single serve gelato cake and work with our major retailers to meet their product fulfillment needs.”
Black Market Gelato has partnered with Adler Industrial and the Boise Airport on the development of the project. “This is a great project to kick off our airport project and will be a great addition to the City of Boise, bringing in great jobs to the region.” said Mike Adler, President of Adler Industrial.
Boise Mayor, Lauren McLean, spoke at the groundbreaking stating, “When we set out to create a city for everyone, that meant creating jobs and opportunity for everyone. Early on in my time as a mayor, we identified the need to have light industrial & manufacturing opportunity for residents and this project represents that. It’s really exciting to see companies like Black Market Gelato choosing Boise.”
Construction has begun on the project and is expected to be completed as early as July 2023.
