Kochi Gets Its Second Cold Stone Creamery Outlet
Kochi: Tablez, the organised retail arm of LuLu Group International, has opened the second Cold Stone Creamery outlet in Kochi at Panampilly Nagar Main Avenue. Launched in 2016 in India, Cold Stone Creamery currently has 13 outlets across the country. The Ultimate Ice Cream Experience of the world famous super-premium ice cream brand has been brought to India through a strategic collaboration with Kahala Brands, the US-based parent company of the Cold Stone Creamery. The shop’s first fabulous treat was extended to the children of Capernaum Charitable Trust, for whom it was a delightful joy in the entire life.
Using the finest ingredients, Cold Stone Creamery makes super-premium ice creams fresh daily. These small batches are handcrafted in the store and are mixed with style by spirited crew members on a frozen granite stone. Apart from the distinctive Cold Stone Creations, Cold Stone Creamery also offers signature ice cream cakes, shakes, smoothies and sorbets.
Uniquely positioned as the first ice cream brand in India which promises the freshest ice cream that preserves the end user experience in terms of texture, taste and quality, Tablez operates approximately 1,500 locations in over 27 countries. As part of its CSR initiative, Cold Stone Creamery has also partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the store donates a share from each sale of Cold Stone Creamery ice cream to the Foundation.
"We are excited to expand the Cold Stone Creamery journey here in Kerala. We opened the first outlet of the brand right here in Kochi at LuLu Mall, and we believe that the new store in Panampilly Nagar will further deliver 'The Ultimate Ice Cream Experience' to all ice cream lovers in the city,” said Adeeb Ahamed, Managing Director, Tablez.
In 2013, Tablez announced that they were investing Rs. 350 crore in India over five years. The company has introduced Spanish brands Springfield and Women’secret and US brand Toys 'R' Us and Babies ‘R’ Us to India. Tablez currently operates more than 50 outlets globally and plans to expand to 250 outlets by 2020.
