International franchise website, topfranchise.com has just named Gelatissimo as one of the Top 10 franchise investment opportunities within Australia.
The Boston-based company reviewed brands with; ‘only proven concepts, [where] the franchisors are ready to help their partners in order to make a mutual profit’. The review of Gelatissimo stated, “Gelatissimo offers franchisees three styles of gelaterias (outlets): shopfront, kiosk and cafe. All gelaterias trade seven days a week and produce gelato fresh on premises daily. The company provides franchisees independence of operating their own business while being part of an established business system based on proven methods”.
The acknowledgement has proven timely, with Gelatissimo currently undertaking a strong recruitment drive for new franchisees, with its newly launched website designed to attract an array of strong store owners, particularly within emerging locations in Queensland and Northern NSW.
Indeed, Gelatissimo has set aggressive expansion plans in place for 2022 with store launches set for 10 locations around Australia in the next 12 months with announcements shortly.
“Global expansion is at the heart of our strategic plan for 2021/22,” says Gelatissimo CEO, Filipe Barbosa.
“Both Queensland and locations throughout Northern NSW are particularly strong targets as they tick the boxes of sunshine and leisure. We are therefore targeting areas like Brisbane and the Gold Coast for these reasons, but equally destinations like Hervey Bay and Far North Queensland have appeal as we love to be the local player in these towns.”
Gelatissimo is also set to announce the opening of additional overseas locations in the coming months, proving their franchise model and product offering is as popular on a global stage as it is throughout Australia.
