“Like a true Italian, we love our gelato and believe no day is complete without our fix of gelato. With Gelatofix, we wanted to showcase a piece of Italian heritage with each gelato experience by our Filipino customers. Here, we use only the most natural ingredients, prepared via a process that is both masterful and artisanal,” said Wilson Lim, Executive Director, International Business, Singapore’s Commonwealth Capital Group.

Upon opening of their newest venue, Gelatofix lives up to their philosophy where they provide the place for people to ‘hang their hats’ or simply an Italian way of saying ‘take a break.’ The franchise has been known for having the most remarkable handcrafted gelato masterpieces, a menu comprised of nutritious gourmet salads, rich-flavored-soups, lavish mains, to-die for beverages, and their signature toast box called ‘Magic Boxx,’ which comprised of a unique fusion of Asian bread toasted to perfections, cubed in sweet buttery texture that is topped with Italian gelato and served with a treasured chest of renowned Gelatofix chocolate sauce. The menu also includes an array of best and locally-curated Filipino-inspired dishes.

“We are known for having the smoothest and creamiest Italian gelato and for our first class and exquisite gourmet from piatti (in plates), coppe (in cups), toasts and cakes. But what we are most proud of is the ‘Gelato Sushi’ creation by Master Chef Novelli,” added Lim.

“We will be the first in the Philippines to launch an authentic Italian dessert lifestyle café chain under Gelatofix. It will be the destination of choice for both young people and working adults who are on the prowl of mouth-watering yet guilt-less gelato and food offerings which make a serious play on both Italian and local flavors,” said Mr. Von Lacorte, Director, Gelatofix Philippines.

The café chain also announced that they will be adding five new outlets over the next 12 months in the metro, as well as having international branches in Cambodia, Kuwait, Maldives, and Qatar.
