Johnny & Tino’s Gourmet Italian Ices & Ice-Cream
It all began in a little store on Coney Island Avenue. As the spring arrived each day, a new flavor was born — transformed to a treat like no other. The word spread fast and the franchise began. In approximately 3 years there were 50 locations from Brooklyn to Florida. Many accreditations were to follow. The fondest is the proclamation that Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz bestowed upon John Russo.
Written up numerously for his amazing recipes in the New York Times, Zagats and The New York Daily News, John forged on and everyone was happy.
Being the master of quality, and his personal affiliation with his customers, he was always looking to make it better and go with technology. So the concept he has put his efforts into is one that will be sure to give the store owners full control of the product quality and availability.
Years of experimenting have given birth to the concept of reducing the big factory job to a personal experience making the perfect products — as simple and easy as you need it. All the guess work is taken out of ordering — not knowing the unique mood of every day and season in each individual store. The premixed solution is simple, easy and fantastic! It comes out perfect every time. The savings to the store owner are enormous and the return for the store owners is approximately 400% to 500%. The product is no longer affected by the temperature during shipping – no more freezer truck worries. The product can be shipped by local carriers such as UPS and FedEx.
The process allows you, the store owner, to customize products depending on the store needs and your creative genius. The possibilities are endless with you in control of each unique store in your unique neighborhoods. Please your customers — give them what they yearn for.
All of our products are 100% Kosher — allowing you to easily widen your customer base. Amongst our vast list of delectable flavors you’ll find the newest, hottest sugar free flavors with very low colorie counts. All of our sugar free flavors are delicious and all are made without Maltitol, which can cause intestinal discomfort.
Now, are you sitting down? There are no franchise fees or royalties…ever! You will be using these initial savings for your equipment and start up supplies. You will be trained by our Master Chef to be your own Master Chef. Just a 24 hour, seven day a week, phone call away — any question, any time! Plus, you can name your store whatever you’d like — this is not a franchise — we never force the store owner to use our company name.
The name of the game is freshness and not compromising the product through the temperature change you would normally experience during shipping.
Make it and shock it to the correct temperature. That is the key to a fresh, delicious, consistent quality treat to serve all day, every day. Your customers will be thrilled to see you in your white coat hand making fresh the flavors they are most in the mood for on a hot summer day.
