Three New Locations for Gelatissimo

Gelatissimo goes from strength to strength, announcing three new Queensland-based locations. 

Following the successful launch of the first USA-based store in Houston in January, Gelatissimo  is proud to announce the opening of three new Australian locations, all based in sunny  Queensland. 

Both the Ipswich store, Southwest of Brisbane, and the Airlie Beach store, located in  picturesque North Queensland, launched last month. The third location, Carindale, in Brisbane’s Southeast, is intended to open this month (August). 

“Off the back of a challenging period, Gelatissimo is well placed to expand and grow across  Australia and international markets and our new store designs set a benchmark for our future  expansion,” says Anthony Shina, Gelatissimo General Manager. 

With its sleek branding and positioned in the newly developed Nicholas Street Precinct, the  Ipswich store was opened with much fanfare, welcoming over 300 customers with free  scoops on their grand opening day.  

A limited-edition flavour was also released in celebration – Ipswich’s Choc Truffle Delight. 

The Airlie Beach store, located in a prime tourism hotspot, is the third store for franchisee  owner David Lim. They welcomed over 650 customers with free scoops on their grand  opening day and launched their limited-edition flavour, Airlie Beach’s Tropical Sunrise, a  refreshing passionfruit and yuzu sorbet. 

“Since opening, we feel so welcomed by all the locals in Airlie Beach and look forward to  continuing to serve our award-winning gelato to our community and visiting guests,” says  David. 

The Carindale store is located in Westfield Shopping Centre and will be a welcome addition  to the Glasshouse Precinct. Plans are also underway for its highly anticipated launch. 

“Opening the Houston-based store and then three Australian stores has been huge for us this  year, however we still have plenty more to deliver, with our Hawaii store expected to open soon,” says Anthony.

Since opening in Sydney in 2002, Gelatissimo has been proudly bringing its flavour obsessed  approach to gelato to every occasion. Mixing the freshest and finest quality ingredients with  traditional techniques, a splash of imagination and global inspiration, Gelatissimo serves  experiences with a difference you can taste. No artificial colours or flavours, just pure  indulgence, made the Australian way.
