Crolla’s was founded in 1895, when a young Serafino Crolla exchanged the warm sunshine of Italy for the less predictable climates of Scotland to set up his first shop in Queen Mary Street, Glasgow. Over the years it has grown to the business it is today.

Crolla's Food

For more than 120 years, the Crolla’s recipe for success has been simple – great customer experiences, hard working employees and mouth watering Gelato. Crolla’s growth can mainly be credited to our satisfied customers who have made our once small ice-cream parlour into the huge success it is today.

They bring over 120 years of ice cream making experience to the franchisee with specially sourced, developed and refined ingredients to make world class ice creams.

The Franchise:
The unique selling point of each Gelateria is that it makes its own Gelato (ice cream) on site and has access to the ingredients to make over 80 flavours and offers customers an innovative blend of create-your-own ice cream in the form of a coldstone creation.
