March 17, 2011 // Franchising.com // DALLAS – Paciugo Gelato & Caffè is celebrating St. Patrick's Day with robust beer-infused gelato flavors sure to charm the taste buds of its customers.
The family owned and operated company specializing in authentic Italian gelato will have on tap Guinness Irish Stout Gelato and Chocolate Guinness Gelato. Each flavor indulges the senses with the rich, smooth taste of gelato bolstered by a hint of beer, without the headache.
"We paired the most loved Irish beer, Guinness Irish Stout, with our creamy, sweet Italian gelato to toast the luck of the Irish," said Vincent Ginatta, co-founder of Paciugo Gelato & Caffè. "Paciugo welcomes all to share in the unique taste that will be sure to have everyone cheering for another round!"
Beer-infused Gelato contains less than 0.5% alcohol per serving and is made with wholesome ingredients like milk and sugar.
The St. Patrick's Day promotional flavors are available for a limited time only. Please contact your nearest Paciugo Gelato & Caffè for more information.
Paciugo Gelato & Caffè handcrafts small batches of gelato each morning using only the finest and freshest ingredients, such as hand-squeezed fruit juices and seasonal fruit from local farmers, ultra-premium chocolate from Belgium, and hazelnuts, pistachios and candied Amarene cherries from Italy. In addition to its award-winning gelato, the menu features all-natural, ethically grown and fairly traded 100% Arabica coffees, premium hot chocolate and a variety of hot and cold specialty drinks that combine gelato with coffee and other beverages.
Paciugo Gelato & Caffè was founded in 2000 when Ugo, Cristiana and Vincenzo Ginatta, inspired by their passion to bring authentic Italian gelato to customers outside of Europe, moved to Dallas, Texas and opened their first gelateria. Since then, the company has grown to 41 franchised locations across the United States and Mexico. Each Paciugo Gelato & Caffè offers more than 30 flavors of gelato that are handcrafted with love every morning at each neighborhood location. Cristiana has developed more than 400 recipes, including flavors ranging from Mediterranean Sea Salt Caramel, Blackberry Cabernet, Tiramisù, and Fondente Extra Dark Chocolate to more unusual flavors like Banana Beet and Black Pepper Olive Oil. The menu also includes all-natural, ethically grown and fairly traded 100% Arabica coffee and espresso-based drinks, as well as gelato-based specialty desserts. In 2011, Paciugo Gelato & Caffè was chosen by Franchise Times as a "Fast 55" franchise, one of Inc. magazines Fastest Growing Companies on the Inc. 5000 list, as well as a Dun & Bradstreet All Business All-Star Franchise.
