Madisonos started in a small kitchen behind our market in Glendale, so its amazing to see our pints sitting on the shelves at Kroger, said Matt Madison, founder and Chief Operating Officer of Madisonos. Weve built our business on creating unique, hand-crafted flavors that allow people to truly experience authentic gelato. Were thrilled to provide Cincinnatians with an opportunity to take the Madisonos adventure, without having to go any further than their local Kroger
A longtime contributor to Cincinnatis culinary scene, Matt Madison started out providing local restaurants with fresh produce and herbs grown on his familys farm in Adams County. That business evolved into the states first shitake mushroom farm and eventually led to the formation of the Madisons Market in 1996, one of Findlay Markets longest-standing businesses still in operation.
Since 2006, Matt Madison has experimented with a variety of different flavors, regularly collaborating with local restauranteurs. One of the earliest examples of this was their Bananas Foster Gelato, which was first inspired by and developed for Chef David Faulk at Nada in downtown Cincinnati. Its success at Nada led Madisonos to permanently add it to their lineup of 14 pint flavors. One of its more recent creations was a smoke pork belly and honey gelato made for Maribelles Tavern in Oakley.
Their approach is simple: Use as few of the best quality local ingredients as possible to create the best possible product. Several of Madisonos sorbet flavors are made with only six ingredients and its gelato has only eight, all of which have been carefully hand selected and locally sourced when available.
