The Knotted Cone was started by Kathy Turek in Spring of 2016. Her inspiration & love for gelato started on a whim. A backpack trip through Europe led her to one small gelato shop in Rome which turned into an instant affection for the artisan dessert.
Fast forward, Kathy jumped all in to make gelato her next chapter and full-time career. To learn the craft from the best, she attended Carpigiani Gelato University in Bologna, Italy in Spring 2015. Fall 2016 launched the first Knotted Cone truck event in Appleon, WI and from there the wheels were rolling (literally). Now we’re proud to say, here we are! Endless scoops, dozens of creative flavors, miles on the truck and thousands of fans! The adventure continues.
