Learn About Gelato di Roma Franchises
Gelato di Roma Creamery is the brainchild of Allie T. Mallad, an entrepreneur
whose recent formula for success has everyone exploring the finer points of a
favorite comfort food—Italian ice cream, or gelato. Allie's operational
expertise coupled with his entrepreneurial passion and marketing savvy,
eventually gave rise to the Gelato di Roma concept.
A hands-on approach to corporate franchise management has proven to be a giant
winner for the company, and the quality presentation of over 50 freshly made
gelato flavors is the "magic" behind the company's success.
Gelato is Italian ice cream. It has a richer flavor and thicker texture than
regular ice cream because it includes more solids, no preservatives and less
air. Since the air content is only about 45% (versus 100% in regular ice cream)
and the fat about 7% (versus 16% in regular ice cream), the product is denser
and the flavors more concentrated. Gelato di Roma offers 51 flavors (all made on
premises with 100% natural ingredients and no preservations), including a line
of intensely flavorful fruit sorbets. Gelato di Roma also offers signature
pizzas and newly introduced oven-baked subs—a natural fit for the consumer as
well as an operationally perfect match for the business model.
The ice cream business is a $20 billion industry and the pizza industry is even
bigger at about $30 billion per year. We have a specific and unique strategy to
distinguish ourselves in the competitive marketplace. We are the only concept
that has taken both industries to a higher level with the creation of "Pizzalato."
This term truly explains our concept. It refers to dinner and dessert—or pizza
and gelato. Our tagline is "Dinner with Us is Desert On us!" With our signature
Pizzalato, customers will always leave our restaurants with a free pint of
gelato or sorbet. It's a terrific idea that started as a promotion and is now an
effective form of branding for Gelato di Roma.
Best Gelato Concept
We own the unique liquid proprietary base that is used to make our gelato.
Without it, a gelato company loses control of two of the three fundamental
stages of developing a premium gelato: quality ingredients and unequaled
richness. At Gelato di Roma, our research and development team maintains the
highest quality standards for our gelato and sorbet, and is responsible for the
ongoing refinement and development of our proprietary recipes. The team works
closely with approved dairies and chemists to insure that our combination of
natural ingredients guarantee superior product for the consumer.
Gelato di Roma Authentic Italian Creamery's mission statement is to be a
