April Ambassador's Diamond Review - Nutty Squirrel Gelato
Posted by Erica Dial
The Maple Valley Black Diamond Ambassadors met with Garrett Cox, Manager of the Maple Valley Nutty Squirrel Gelato to learn more about the business and of course—the gelato! In 2012, owner Tolga Seyman open the Nutty Squirrel Gelato store in Maple Valley. He saw the potential for growth in the area and wanted to be a part of it. They have been very committed to the community and want Nutty Squirrel gelato to be a family friendly store. They also want to educate people about gelato. They strive to provide the freshest ingredients for their gelato such as premium organic South American cocoa. All their gelato is hand made in their Maple Valley store currently but soon production will move to their new store in the Magnolia neighborhood. This is what some of the Ambassador’s had to say about Nutty Squirrel Gelato:
* “Nutty Squirrel is a great community business striving to keep ingredients natural.”
* “What a great growth story: They saw the pending growth in Maple Valley and wanted to be a part of it. And from this, they have grown their business to include 2 other locations and a wholesale business.”
* “They use only the freshest ingredients in their gelato—some of the ingredients are hand peeled!”
* They placed 8th in the 2016 World Gelato Tour competition in Chicago with their Magic Carpet Ride Gelato.
