Righteous Gelato - Small Batch Gelato
Fiasco Changes Name to Righteous Gelato Co.
Fiasco, an iconic name in Calgary business history, is changing its moniker effective immediately to Righteous Gelato as part of a new direction and growth strategy. "We created this company with an unwavering commitment to enriching people’s lives and doing it right. Unfortunately, Trademark challenges in the USA and other markets continued to hold us back from those goals, and with a bright future ahead of us we decided it would be best to no longer be a Fiasco", said James Boettcher, Custodian of Culture and CEO. " Integrity, Commitment, Passion, and collaboration make us who we are, and I am beyond excited for us to live out our true spirit with a name that embodies who we are and what we do. We continue to approach business and employing people differently, making for a better food producer for tomorrow.”
