With a 100-year history behind it, Gallone’s Ice Cream Parlour comes with a rich heritage and brand story that can’t be replicated by newer businesses. After many years of ice cream vans, 2013 saw the husband and wife team open their very first parlour in Kingsthorpe, Northampton right next door to their factory.
The success that followed prompted enquiries from entrepreneurs keen to open their own Gallone’s and, after a successful pilot, the brand began to franchise across the UK.
The team behind Gallone’s are now using The Franchise Show as an opportunity to find like-minded people with a passion for building on an established brand and who want to be part of a great team. Interested parties should swing by stand number 222 where the Gallone’s team will be happy to talk you through their franchise opportunity and give you a flavour of the business.
With UK ice cream sales enjoying a 6.9% surge on volumes, up 3.4% in the past year, as consumers forked out an extra £53.9m on ice cream, Gallone’s are looking for people who can help with their expansion plans. Now with 6 parlours and more in the pipeline, The Franchise Show is the perfect opportunity to speak to the passion and the people behind the brand in person and ask all the questions you have about the business and its potential.
As well as their popular products, Gallone’s have also built a strong birthday party business, so strong in fact that the party diary is full four whole months in advance! Talk to the team about their products and parties at the show and get a feel for whether this is the right franchise for you.
The show is taking place at the ExCel in London from the 17th to the 18th of February and tickets are completely free. Plus, the ExCel is super easy to get to, whether you’re travelling by tube, train, car or even plane! It boasts two on-site DLR stations, parking for over 3000 cars and London City Airport is mere minutes away.
The ExCel is the home of world-leading events and The Franchise Show is the biggest and best franchise event in the UK. From seminars to live features, The Franchise Show will be packed with information for entrepreneurs. You’ll get the chance to meet over 150 franchise brands and seek out a delicious franchise opportunity that you’re sweet on!
