Paciugo Gelato & Caffé© has signed a lease for its first airport location.
It will arrive at the AIRMALL® at Cleveland-Hopkins International (CLE) later this month. The 300 sq. ft. unit will open in Concourse C and be operated by MBC Concessions, offering its signature Italian gelato, as well as coffee and espresso blends.
“At AIRMALL USA, we are delighted that Paciugo Gelato & Caffé© has chosen our newest concessions program to open their very first airport location,” says Mark Knight, president of AIRMALL USA. “We believe it is the perfect addition to our program, where flavors range from local to international. Moreover, passengers with a craving for this classic Italian favorite can enjoy their gelato knowing that they will pay ‘Regular Mall Prices…Guaranteed.'”
Paciugo was founded by Ugo Ginatta and his wife, Cristiana. They import Italian ingredients, machinery and technique from Italy so they can duplicate recipes from their home cities of Turin and Milan. It has four base formats: milk- based, water-based, soy-based and no sugar added.
“Paciugo Gelato & Caffé© will create an even greater variety of choices for travelers at CLE and offer some international flair,” says Airport Director Ricky Smith. “We are pleased to add the unit to our concessions program and are certain that passengers will welcome the arrival of freshly-prepared Italian gelato.”
