@Financial Chronicle: The Chona family that claims to have pioneered the manufacture of ice cream in India is all set to set up high-end ice cream cafes of 1,500-2,000 sq. ft size each, which will be hangout places serving everything from sundaes and desserts to coffee. The format is likely to be called ‘Ice cream World by Cream Centre’.
The ice creams will be completely eggless and high fat, and will use flavours imported from the USA, France and Italy. The family has spent over 12 months developing a range of 24-36 flavours such as Sicilian Pista. The initial branches are expected to roll out in the next two quarters in the company owned format. Chona also plans to franchise the outlets which will be serviced by the backend support they have built for franchisees of Cream Centre, the iconic vegetarian restaurant controlled by them.
