Ice to see you, intu. Physical first for Gelato Divino
Gelato Divino is entering the UK shopping centre market for the first time with the opening of a unit at intu Derby.
Originally a family-owned ice-cream shop in Italy, the venture now has over 50 stores in the United Arab Emirates. It has set its sights on expanding across the UK and recently opened a branch in Derby city centre. Nick Round, Regional Managing Director at intu, says: “intu Derby is the perfect location for Gelato Divino to kick off their UK expansion, as the centre offers a compelling blend of retail, catering and leisure with exciting brands including Hollywood Bowl and Paradise Adventure Golf. The premium ice-cream brand is a great addition to the centre’s vibrant mix where customers can shop, eat and be entertained all under one roof.”
Nicolas Reincke, Founder and MD, Gelato Divino, comments: “We know from our own experience just how popular gelato is and there is a strong demand in the UK, so our store at intu Derby is the perfect place for us to reach millions of customers each year. All of our ingredients are based on our traditional Italian recipes from Alba in Italy and is produced fresh each day in Derby using no artificial flavours or preservatives.”
