Event & Hire Options

Messina Comes To You!

All carts & vans are perfect for weddings, engagements, proposals, birthdays, divorces, food fights, zombie prevention rituals, tax office parties, plus private and corporate events. In fact, if you can think of an event where our portable gelato isn’t appropriate, we’ll be very impressed.
