“Glacier” from father to son
and from father to daughters


It all started in 1899 in Liège, Belgium, when Loretto Nardone, Italian immigrant, founded his company.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, he moved to Lyon, where Antonio, his son succeeded him in the business in 1929 and opened “ glacier Trianon” at the current address (26 quai de Bondy, lyon 5e)
Ice-creams are not only sold at the store : residents in Lyon still remember Antonio and his wife Beatrice who set up a mobile kiosk around Place Bellecour.

The manufacturing quality is the watchword of the family business, which allows to meet the requirements of the lyonnais people.

Years went by, until Antonio’s son, René, and his wife Michele took over the business.
Using ingredients of uncompromising quality, researching new trends, and constant innovation, have helped to strengthen their reputation.

In the early 70s, they developped the brand, the reputation of which,beams over Lyon and the region.

In 1980, the store was renamed “René Nardone Glacier”. It was at this precise moment that a turning point occurred with the opening of 2 parlours, the expansion of the terrace and a significant diversification of flavours. The number of flavours increased from fifteen to forty And today, sixty-three different flavours are available for sale every day.

René Nardone has become the leading manufacturer of ice-cream in Lyon.

But the family saga does not end here: in the last 10 years René 's daughters , Armelle and Béatrice, together with Gilbert, Béatrice's husband, have taken command of the enterprise and perpetuate tradition with the same permanent concern of satisfying their customers.
