Creams Café has announced a partnership with Tesco, which will see it open dessert parlours within the footprint of two of its supermarkets.

The first site will open in Tesco Extra in Streatham, south London, in November this year, with the second location to be confirmed shortly.

The new +200sq m café in Streatham will be able to accommodate up to 58 covers, and will feature Cream’s signature interior design, with a gelato counter dispensing 24 flavours of ice cream. The menu will also feature is own blend of coffee, custom-made cakes and doughnuts.

Commenting on the partnership, Othman Shoukat, managing director, Creams said: “I am delighted to announce, as we finish up what has been a highly successful summer for Creams Cafe, the first opening within Tesco.

“This agreement signals a significant moment for Creams, as we look to further grow our 100-restaurant estate and this exciting partnership is an opportunity for us to extend our reach whilst reaffirming our position as the UK’s favourite dessert restaurant brand.”

Earlier this year Shoukat told MCA that Creams was looking to “turbo charge” its expansion in the UK and overseas following the acquisition of additional shares by existing investors Pistachio Holdings and Salonica Maroon.

“There is a lot of potential still in the UK. We have done market mapping of 500 locations which we see as viable,” Shoukat said. “We see a lot of potential in the north in particular, and in the regions.
