Perhaps you attended the recent ICA Ice Cream & Gelato Expo in Harrogate? Did you have the chance to taste some of the latest flavours and recipes from MEC3? If so you might be wondering how you can make such delicious tasting gelato. If not, you might be wishing you had! However, all is not lost... There is a second opportunity to taste the new flavours for 2019 at our Season Launch!

WHAT COURSES CAN ANTONELLI PROVIDE TO HELP US WHEN STARTING AN ICE CREAM BUSINESS? 

At Antonelli, we are not just renowned in the industry for producing the only UK-made waffle cones, but we also pride ourselves in our reputation for supporting customers both new and well-established. To that end, we have a dedicated National Technical Manager, as well as a Sales & Technical Director, who provide a variety of training courses suitable for those starting an ice cream business, right up to advanced gelato making and specialist product development.

The main two courses we recommend for those starting an ice cream business are GelBiz and So You Want to Make Gelato. For more details see our Starting an Ice Cream Business page http://www.icecreamtraining.co.uk/starting-an-ice-cream-business/. You will see that there are a number of these courses running throughout the year, with the next dates coming up in April. 

WHAT OTHER SUPPORT CAN ANTONELLI OFFER ME?

Our courses are not just about the practical side of making ice cream or gelato. We can help you with a number of other areas beyond the products, even before you get to think about making ice cream. The team at Antonelli has helped many businesses over the years as they start up their ice cream business. Not only that, but we have even had the experience of setting up our own gelateria, so we know exactly the processes required. This means we have the knowledge to advise you on the following: 

• Business models
• Machinery
• Gelateria design
• Market position & customer demographics
• Range of products to offer alongside gelato
• Staffing 

As you can see, this is basically everything you need to consider when starting an ice cream business!

So what is the next step? You can either book yourself on one of our courses (see the link above), or contact us on 0161 789 8808 or training@antonelli.co.uk. 

We look forward to helping you achieve your ambition of starting an ice cream business.
