Gelatissimo, the Australian gelato brand, is establishing a presence in Bangladesh and India. The openings follow expansions into South East Asia and the Middle East and hike the total of Gelatissimo’s outlets to 66.
CEO Filipe Barbosa said: “Making excellent gelato is a complex task and so is building a brilliant gelato business. Since launching our concept store in 2002 and commencing franchising in 2004 we have worked hard to create a business that works for our franchisees, locally and overseas. With a quality artisan product, a simple in-store production system, local marketing and brand building campaigns and an ongoing training programme, we set all our franchisees up for success.
“Since taking the Gelatissimo business overseas to Singapore in 2005 we have been actively recruiting Master Franchisees across the globe who share our vision of creating ‘Gelatissimoments’. Bangladesh and India represent big opportunities for us and our partners and we look forward to making it a sweet success.”
