Its franchisees are expected to open five stores for each country in the next 12 months.
Gelatissimo announced that they will open a number of stores in Bangladesh and India on September.
“Making excellent gelato is a complex task and so is building a brilliant gelato business. 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. Bangladesh and India represent big opportunities for us and our partners and we look forward to making it a sweet success,” Gelatissimo CEO Filipe Barbosa said in a statement.
The expansion will be done in partnership with master franchisees Sangeeta Dumpeta from India and Nilesh Jamnadas from Bangladesh.
“The stores will be fitted in the internationally recognisable Gelatissimo branding and serve the brand’s best loved flavours and products,” Dumpeta said.
The ice cream chain currently has 45 stores in Australia and another 17 in other countries. India and Bangladesh will join Gelatissimo’s portfolio of international franchises along with Philippines, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and China
