Antonio found a full time job making ice cream for an Italian family, the Cassinelli’s, and met a young woman by the name of Rebecca who would soon become his wife.
Priding himself on “Quality and Cleanliness” (cleanliness being a marketable trait in 1930!) Antonio began making ice cream in his own hand made ice cream machines.
After the Second World War, Antonio Jnr, now in his mid twenties, re-opened De Roma Ice Cream and applying the same vigour and devotion he had seen in his Father. Supported by his immediate family led the business into a new era of success.
During the 1990’s, De Roma Ice Cream became the 2nd largest producer of Ice Cream Products in the UK, employing 200 people in Wigan.
However, the hard grafting Sardinian spirit of Antonio Snr survived in his grandson Anthony De Roma, and 6 months later he reopened as a small Artisan Ice Cream Manufacturer – just a stone’s throw from where his Grandad founded the business 82 years earlier.
These days, along with his sister Ann and son Antonio (yes, ANOTHER Antonio!), Anthony De Roma Ice Cream Ltd, is the North’s premier artisan producer and wholesale supplier of Italian style gelato ice cream, delivering the best quality ice cream with unparalleled customer service.
