By chance, while on holiday in Adelaide, Johnn was introduced to a leading gelato business owner who had a product of such quality that it made him fall in love with it. After returning to Darwin and back to his job at Power Water, he couldn’t get the gelato out of his head. So Johnn made the step to enquire about selling the product here in Darwin and, to his surprise, the company agreed and Johnn Johnn’s was born.
Initially planning to sell gelato at various markets, due to difficulties and delays he was left with a pre-order of stock and had to quickly improvise. As a result he launched by selling gelato via a home delivery service and before he knew it his loyal customers loved the gelato as much as he did. This was the beginning of his journey to two shops, two businesses and a few location changes along the way.
