Handling the Summer Heat
Gainesville summers are like nothing you’ve experienced before. If you don’t know what I’m talking about - the wall of humidity awaiting you outside every door frame or the sidewalks hot enough to sizzle an egg - you can consider yourself lucky. But if you are familiar with the mid-summer heat in Gainesville, you know there’s one thing that is a quick and delicious fix: icecream.
And I’m not talking about any ice cream in any old shop. I’m talking about Gelati, the perfect combination of Italian ice or Cream Ice with ice cream, delicately layered on top of one another. This mouth-watering, refreshing treat was brought to Gainesville by University of Florida graduate, Brandon Grabhorn, and has been taking over the sweet treat industry since. The result: B’z Gelati, a food truck and catering company.

Got It From My Momma
Brandon Grabhorn started B’z Gelati in 2019 based on his passion for the sweet dessert. As a University of Florida student, and avid Gelati fan, he recognized the lack of his favorite sweet in the Gainesville area. With the desire to start his own business after graduation, Brandon started B’z Gelati in 2019, just a year after finishing his Business degree, to share his love and passion for the dessert.
“It’s more about making customers happy, satisfied, and to share the love of Gelati” - Brandon Grabhorn, Owner
The ice cream and gelati is so good here, even the owners and workers admit to only eating their product. But the business didn’t start without some guidance from who knows best...mom and dad. Brandon’s parents, hardworking and wise, have been a huge part of building this small business and serving as a friendly-face to customers.
Where Can I Find B’z?
On packed and hot University of Florida football game days, you can find B’z Gelati food truck parked on University Avenue, refreshing the crowds of fans. Their everyday location changes throughout the year, but is most recently located at Oaks Mall, and can always be checked on the company’s website. Be sure to head out there, or order through Byppo, to start your Gelati experience like no other!
