Starting an Ice Cream Business

***During the current situation relating to COVID-19, Antonelli is following general commercial advice for social distancing.  Only authorised employees may visit our bakery.  During the summer we were pleased to be able to resume our One 2 One ice cream training sessions with enhanced hygiene and protection measures at our Gelato Academy.  Due to increased restrictions we are currently unable to run any face to face courses.

However we are pleased to announce that if you are starting an ice cream business you can now access our monthly So You Want to Make Gelato online courses, which you can read more about in our blog. For standard courses please do register your interest for when we can resume courses in the future. You can also keep up with what we are doing behind the scenes through our blogs, Gelato Jonny or follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.  If you need to talk to us about a particular product or delivery please call Customer Services on 0161 789 4485***

Starting an ice cream business is exciting but sometimes feels like a big step to take.  Here at Antonelli we have supported many new businesses in a variety of ways when opening a gelateria or ice cream parlour.  We can help you to develop your own styles and ice cream recipes or build on family and cultural traditions. Our ice cream training courses provide an understanding and information to support your decisions relating to location, machinery selection, staffing and business profitability, as well as the finer details of ice cream portion control, serving and display.

Starting an Ice Cream Business Courses

Below are the dates of our courses relevant to those starting an ice cream business. All courses take place at the Antonelli Gelato Academy at our site at Irlam, Manchester.

So You Want To Make Gelato sessions cover gelato & sorbet base recipes & flavours, with demonstrations showing you how to make a gelato base and a few flavours. We look closely at balancing recipes so that the best structure and texture is maintained, as well as managing your display cabinet.

“…thank you to all the team at Antonelli’s for hosting such a fun and informative session in a very welcoming and encouraging atmosphere…I am now more sure than ever that this is an industry I want to progress in…” Rebekah, Lancashire

“I had a fantastic day at Antonelli’s learning about ice cream and the industry more generally… In addition to the theory and science of ice cream making, we also had the opportunity to watch (and taste!) Mark Antonelli make several ice cream flavours, including an ice cream tailored to my particular requirements which was excellent. It also gave us a chance to see the pasteuriser and batch freezer in action.” Jai, London

“Absolute value for money, so informative – would highly recommend this course.” Angela, England
