Why is the Amorino franchise a good investment?

Franchise model with strong ROI and no royalties
The brand says it has a robust and practical franchise model with an attractive return on investment (ROI) and no royalties can be particularly appealing to potential franchisees in the UK market. The absence of royalties reduces ongoing expenses for franchisees, making the business opportunity financially attractive.

While specific statistics on ROI and franchise royalty structures may vary depending on the brand and market conditions, successful franchise models typically offer competitive financial terms to franchisees.

Growing demand for premium gelato and desserts
The UK market has witnessed a surge in demand for premium desserts, driven by consumers’ desire for high-quality, indulgent treats. Gelato, with its creamy texture and rich flavours, is well-positioned to capitalise on this trend.

The UK ice cream market is forecasted to grow by 12% from 2021 to 2026, with premium and artisanal offerings driving much of this growth, according to a report by Mintel.

Shift towards healthier indulgence
Consumers are increasingly seeking desserts made with natural, high-quality ingredients. Amorino emphasises the use of organic dairy, and other wholesome ingredients, aligning with the growing demand for healthier indulgence options.

Some 39% of UK consumers are actively trying to reduce their sugar intake, demonstrating a preference for desserts that offers indulgence without compromising on health, according to research by Kantar.

Customisation and experiential dining
Premium gelato brands differentiate themselves by offering unique flavour combinations and customisable options, providing consumers with an immersive and personalised dining experience. This focus on customisation enhances customer engagement and loyalty.
