A traditional Italian ice cream parlour will open its doors in Leamington next week.

The new Gallone’s parlour, situated on The Parade, will stock 32 of the family-run company’s own home-made flavours, including ‘the best vanilla ice cream in the UK’, according to a recent award.

With rising sales, the Gallone family opened parlours in Northampton and Market Harborough, both of which were such a success that the firm decided to allow franchisees to set up parlours and sell its ice cream across the UK.

The Leamington parlour, which opens on July 25 and has created 10 jobs, is one of the first of these franchises.
