DeConna Ice Cream was founded by "Big Daddy" Don DeConna in Miami during the late 1940s. Mr. DeConna expanded his small vending operation to include manufacturing and distribution. In 1963 he moved the business to Gainesville, Florida.
Today, our family owned company distributes a "World of Flavors" from our modern cold storage complex on 33 acres in Orange Lake, Florida. Our facility is conveniently located 1 mile east of I-75 on Highway 318. DeConna also has distribution facilities in Tampa and Palm Bay, Florida.
