La Paloma Gelateria & Cafe

Established in 1967, La Paloma is the most authentic Italian dessert experience. Over 40 years developing countless proprietary recipes, La Paloma is now franchising. "The ART of Italian Artisan Ice Cream". Our turnkey "Gelato Cafe" concept features over 40 flavours in-store to offer a taste of Italy that is unequalled.

La Paloma is a super-premium quality Gelato manufacturer and retailer that offers a unique alternative to the pre-made or packaged frozen ice cream currently prevalent throughout Europe and North America. Through our central production commissary, each La Paloma store receives their gelato fresh daily by qualified gelatiere (artisan gelato makers) using the freshest and highest quality natural ingredients. High quality gelato has always greatly depended on the individual skills and abilities of the gelatiere or chef. Until now, replicating this knowledge and skill on a large scale was clearly a difficult feat.

We have recreated an authentic Italian culinary and cultural experience modelled after the greatest, most famous cafés of Europe. Our concept reflects ‘la dolce vita’ through our casual offering of coffees, drinks, desserts and, of course, our product line of Artisan Gelato confections. We’ve wrapped up the best parts of being Italian into an efficient, profitable business model called ‘La Paloma Gelateria & Café’.

Our concept can be easily integrated into a number of different retail spaces using a series of modular configurations: 500 sq.ft., 1,500 sq.ft., and Kiosk models.

La Paloma Gelateria & Café offers a complete, proven package which includes the following:

  1. Real Estate Support - Site selection, lease negotiation and store design
  2. Project Management – Throughout construction and installation of leaseholds, furniture and equipment
  3. Franchise System – Exclusive usage of unique, high quality, easy-to-use, proprietary products
  4. Training & Support – Staff training for sales, maintenance and presentation of products as well as written support documentation
  5. Sales and Marketing Support – Online support tools of your business
  6. On-going quality control audits – On-site visits by our representatives
  7. Exclusive Usage - Registered La Paloma Gelateria & Café name, products and logo

Our franchise system offers easier and greater control of the business operations while leaving the details of gelato production to our Artisans. The benefits of our concept are: the reduction of capital expenditures, reduced utilities charges, minimum skilled labour, and more time available to manage your business.

We are looking for investors with potential to open one or multiple locations. Ideal candidates trust in our long term management experience as manufacturer and retailer. Qualified Franchisees need to be extremely active, reliable and have a passion for this type of activity, aimed to reach a mutual success.
