Pasha Delights is a woman owned start-up business focusing on bringing authentic dondurma (Turkish ice cream) to the US Market.
As long time US residents, Selda Batmaz and her spouse Ediz Batmaz, both holding degrees in Food Science and Engineering, realized that there was practically no representation of authentic dondurma in US, while other international ice cream products such as gelato, mochi, kulfi were widely available and were growing in market share.
With a goal of filling this gap, Selda formed the Pasha Delights company and both scientists rolled up their sleeves to develop dondurma flavors in their home kitchen.
In 2018, they took it to the industrial level and started selling their products in independent groceries.
Today, they are working on expanding their business by developing new flavors, finding new routes to market and making dondurma as widely available as possible.
