Franchising advantage

The only gelato franchise in the world with the complete cycle of gelato production: franchisee has 2 points of sale


Mantovani is the only one franchise having the formula includes pasteurizer and batch freezer.


Ice creams are NOT prepared in italian workshop and sent in frozen packaging, where franchisee adds just water in Batch freezer, so ice cream is ready. This philosophy doesn’t belong to Founders. Franchisee looses in quality, in turnover, in terms of opportunity of increase. Where it is possible, ice cream has to be produced through raw materials and 0 (zero) km.




This allows franchisee to have an independent laboratory.

So, no finished or semi-finished product with the taste lyophilized to which franchisee has to add just water to make ice cream. Our franchisee starts to work from the raw materials to create gelato. This allows the franchisee the laboratory to produce independently of all products gelato and gelato pastry according to the guidelines of the local clientele, like the fruit flavors using in the area. According to the Mantovani formula franchise, the laboratory is the second franchisee's point of sale. The center of production and the point of sale to third parties of the supply channel (bars, restaurants, hotels, catering, ice cream parlors, etc.), and is able to meet all customer needs.

In summary, with our formula it can also be opened only laboratory supplies.


The franchisee has the opportunity to open more stores.

In fact it's very easy to open new shops because they don't need to set up a new laboratory because it is already running the first laboratory so that it can provide additional stores, which in turn will only need storage and fridge storage. The laboratory handcrafted works in complete production cycle (CPC), the raw materials are Mantovani branded, training is carried out by the Maestro Mantovani of Mantovani workshop in Naples. Three types of education: two in the store. The third is in production workshop called. The total duration is approximately 10-15 days. The training is certified in the franchise agreement and is free.


Simplification of productive process.

Thanks to the employment of semi-finished bases already balanced by Mantovani® head office and to the employment of recipes for every single product covered by professional and  trade secrecy; recipes will be transferred and delivered to Franchisee as annex of this  operative instructions only during the development in the workshop.

Our made in Italy products don't suffer seasonal nature of gelato


Transforming the problem of high seasonality in business opportunities. We found the solution that allows you to support the supply / demand market during the winter when some pubs close, extending even in winter versions for the sale of the product. A lien of products from yogurt, Neapolitan cafè & pastry. The competition offers more traditional formulas only selling gelato thus jeopardizing the activity during the winter months. In business terms, the strategy is to diversify the gelato in more production lines to diversify the risks of marketing.
