As Sweet Magnolia Gelato Co. marks its 13th anniversary on Memorial Day, the Clarksdale-based gelato shop is not only celebrating its own success but also its commitment to giving back to the community through its partnership with JustMyMemphis as a sponsor for the Empower Youth Movement. This dedication to empowering the youth is a testament to the shop's values and its founder, Hugh Balthrop's, passion for making a positive impact.

Founded by Hugh Balthrop, a former University of the District of Columbia student who fell in love with a woman named Erica from Mississippi, Sweet Magnolia Gelato Co. is a gelato love story that has grown into a successful business. Balthrop's gelato is special because it is about 8% butterfat, making it denser and with more intense flavors compared to traditional ice cream. This unique approach has garnered a loyal following among gelato enthusiasts who appreciate the rich, creamy texture and the variety of flavors available.
