March 17, 2014 // Franchising.com // DALLAS, Texas – Spring is in full bloom at Paciugo Gelato Caffè. Paciugo, the Dallas-based specialty brand best known for its authentic Italian gelato, is giving Espresso Frappe lovers some flavorful choices, as it offers a distinctly unique twist to the traditional favorite with a secret only it can create.
Today, Paciugo announced it will feature two Espresso Frappe creations, just in time for spring. Amaretto Chocolate Chip and Caramel will be featured over the next nine weeks, through May 18. The quality, gelato-inspired beverages are available in 12-oz, 16-oz and 20-oz sizes and range between $3.79 and $5.99.
The secret to Paciugo's Espresso Frappes is in its gelato, which is handcrafted using wholesome ingredients of the highest quality from around the world. Their unique coffee-based frozen beverages are traditional Espresso Frappes, infused with delicious gelato.
"While we use our famous gelato in almost everything we make, there is more to Paciugo than just gelato," said Diego Comparin, Paciugo Vice President of Research and Development. "Our new Espresso Frappes are handcrafted with ingredients we simply obsess over. We've taken a spring favorite and added an element only Paciugo can. The result is fun and cool beverages that you'll only find at Paciugo.
With nearly 400 recipes in its portfolio, 44 Paciugo Gelato Caffè locations in 16 states each serve an assortment of 32- 40 flavors, made fresh daily at all gelato caffès. This means Paciugo's Espresso Frappes can be served as any number of flavors.
Paciugo Gelato Caffè was founded in 2000 when Ugo, Cristiana and Vincent Ginatta, inspired by their passion of bringing Italian gelato to America, moved to Dallas, Texas and opened their first gelateria. Since then, the company has grown to 44 locations in 16 states. Paciugo offers more than 30 flavors daily of gelato that are handcrafted every morning at each neighborhood location. To complement their unique gelato, Paciugo offers gelato-inspired shakes, smoothies, espresso-based drinks, iced coffees, Gelattes® and artisanal favorites like affogato, hot chocolates, Arabica coffee and Italian roast coffee.
