NEWTOWN STORE: 262 King Street, Newtown
*INNER WEST ALERT*
We’re opening our first Newtown store today – right smack bang in the middle of King Street!
We’re taking over the honorary position of the old Gelatomassi site that has stood proud for the past 14 years.
“I’ve known the boys from Massi since they opened their doors in 2003. We’ve always liked Newtown as a potential destination but the truth is it felt a bit crowded with gelato operators so the time was never quite right. With the boys now moving on, it felt like a nice transition for everyone. We move into a site with a bit of history and take over from someone that’s been a true local in the Newtown food scene for years. Gelatomassi’s longest serving employee is even staying on to help steer the ship!” Nick Palumbo (Messina)
“We’ve been looking to move on from Gelatomassi for some time now. It really was just time for a sea change and we wanted to concentrate on other business interests we have. The conversation with Nick and the Messina guys taking over our site started about a year ago. Until now the time wasn’t quite right for us or them. I’m pleased to say its now a reality. We’ve known Nick for well over 10 years and we can’t think of a better operator to take over from where Massi has left off. Gelato Messina’s reputation speaks for itself.” Salvatore La Rosa (Gelatomassi)
