Gonnella’s rich history of refined bakery recipes and salt-of-the earth tradition built a recognizable enterprise brand with a strong reputation for providing high quality fresh & frozen dough. However, despite having over 130+ years of experience, the brand had to compete with category fragmentation and evolving consumer palettes. Through Mabbly’s partnership, the team embarked on a journey to bring their legacy into relevancy amid disruptors.

Gonnella understood the importance of cultivating a digital presence in order to stay competitive. Mabbly knew how to provide the platform and strategy to blend their rich history with the values that matter most to consumers.
