How an international sensation found its own brand identity in Australia
Anita Gelato is an international gelato sensation, having originated in Israel 20 years ago.
CPM was approached by the Anita Gelato owners in Australia, Tamir & Gisele, to create their own brand identity rather than be managed by the parent company in Israel. They had previously been managing the marketing content for their current 3 Sydney stores located in
Chippendale, Bondi Beach and Bondi Junction. The owners of the Australian stores, wanted to outsource and utilise a trusted hospitality marketing company in Australia, who understood and had experience in the local food scene to help them establish their own brand identity and local following as they have expansion plans to roll out to new stores across Australia. This was the beginning of their journey with CPM in October 2020.
Anita Gelato has truly become a fan favourite throughout Sydney and now have a strong local following and presence online out of the Eastern suburbs area that they were located in.
One of the big aims was to get known to the wider Sydney community so that they are were able to kickstart their presence and be known before the new locations opened.
Top-tier Sydney lifestyle and foodie influencers have come to visit all 3 of the Anita Gelato locations. With the help of CPM, Anita Gelato was recently approached by PICs Peanut Butter to collaborate on limited edition, delicious flavours. This was heavily promoted on socials by CPM, leading to the sell-out of 500kg of both flavours before the end of campaign.
