Dessert and coffee café Stuffed Gelato has launched its franchise model in a drive to expand across the UK.

The business, which currently operates one site in on Bethnal Green Road in Shoreditch, London, has been working with Bee Smart Franchise Consultancy, and has 10 stores in Greater London pre-sold before its official franchise launch.

The business said it had identified more than 600 different locations which it felt would support the opening of a Stuffed site.

The menu features a range of handmade gelato stuffed doughnuts, alongside hot and cold coffee drinks and hot chocolate.
