ABOUT OUR TEAM

We think it's about time you knew a little about the terrific people that make up Rosati Ice®.
 

Our Management Team
 

Al Everetts- Vice-President of Traditional Sales and Product Development
Al’s career began in the furniture business.  He was responsible for restoring fine furniture to its original state.  Al’s love of creation and desire for business ownership led him to invest in a small water ice and custard stand.  He traded and hung up the tools of his previous career and began anew with another set, called, ingredients! The same passion and tenacity makes Al our VP of Great Taste! When he joined the Rosati team in 2009 his first responsibilities were sales and quality control. Since then, Al has single-handedly pioneered our proprietary formula that gives the Rosati Ice® brand its signature.  The unique flavor profiles, melt, consistency, temperature range and resilience to heat shock are  the best in the business and the best in the country! Al was soon promoted to VP and given a free hand in research and development.

Al's talents have helped Rosati Ice become  an industry leader in successful proprietary formulations creating such flavors as Birthday Cake and Mangoneada.  This is only eclipsed by his formulation of new low calorie and low sugar Italian ices that fit into the ever changing USDA School Nutritional guidelines.  Al still does some sales work for the company whenever R&D can spare his exceptional craftsmanship!  Al has imparted his legacy to his son Troy who runs the family business where it all began. Josie’s is a local frozen custard and Italian ice location in Kingston, PA. Married for 33 years to his lovely wife, Laura, Al is the proud father of three children and “Pop–Pop” to three rambunctious grandsons. He resides in Hanover Township, PA.  His hobbies include riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle, cheering on the Broncos and spending time with his three little rascals!
