History of Iorio’s: Family owned business first opened in 2004. Located in the Lansing City Market, Iorio’s Ice services the greater Lansing/East Lansing area with tasty Gelato! Iorio’s has found a niche within Lansing that separates them from their competition. Gelato is an Italian Ice Cream that is not only healthier than regular ice cream but contains less air. While they are located in Lansing City Market, they do have the capabilities of traveling to different events with their Gelato station.
