Crolla's have been making traditional Italian ice cream in Glasgow for over a hundred years. It was 1895 when a young Serafino Crolla exchanged the warm sunshine of Italy for the less prediactable climes of Scotland, setting up his first shop in Queen Mary Street, Glasgow.

His son, Giuseppe, opened a second shop in Clydebank, and after the first World War he returned to Scotland and opened Premier Cafe in Main Street, Bridgeton. This was followed by expansion into the two adjoining premises.

By 1950 the family had started up an ice cream factory and had 30 vans selling their delicious ice cream around the streets of Glasgow.

Today the firm still supplies ice cream vans but has expanded to supply shops, cafes, wholesalers, restaurants and hotels. Althrough as firmly committed as ever to producing top quality ice cream, a look through this website gives some idea of the range of products Crolla's now supplies.

Peter Crolla, Serafino's great-grandson, has now established the fourth generation of Crolla's - a family firm in the true sense of the word. Together with their customers and staff they look forward to future developments in the history of the Crolla Ice Cream Company.
