Ice cream equipment maker Carpigiani UK announces a new London development kitchen and showroom as part of the company’s plans to further its comprehensive nationwide training network.
At the same time David Ashton joins Carpigiani as new business development manager for London and the South East from Hubbard Systems where he held the role of key account manager.
The new facility Park Royal, North London, boasts a wide range of training opportunities and will provide a base for Carpigiani’s popular Gelato University course in the capital.
As well as a general introduction to and overview of ice cream, the Gelato University course provides an interesting outline into the origins of the nation’s favourite frozen dessert, its history, advice on the best ingredients and even menu development.
Paul Ingram, managing director of Carpigiani UK commented:“Following the continued growth of our training programmes around the country, we took the decision to invest in a brand new facility in London. Located within easy reach of the M1, M40 and M25 motorways and just minutes from central London by train, the site is ideal for those living throughout the South East.
“Complete with some of our very latest equipment, we see the development kitchen being used for training of new and existing customers to experiment with new ideas and recipes as well as a convenient meeting space for our team to discuss bespoke packages and plans with our customers.”
