Each restaurant location is open 7 days a week from early morning to late evenings with an authentic Italian experience.
The Mad Italian is all about providing our customers with a comfortable, low stress experience for coffee, snacks and light meals. Stay 5 minutes or stay an hour. Have a quick gelato or one of our Zazzu Hot Cones, or linger over a delicious eggplant parmesan & arugula salad. The Mad Italian is all about comforting Old World choices for food.
The cold snack industry is in a growth phase with a number of new players emerging. The Gelato market has grown as well. Arising strictly within the Italian communities it is now well known around the world and enjoyed by people of all backgrounds. In Canada the artisanal ice cream market was about $234 M in 2009 with huge annual growth.
Gelato represents a number of advantages over ice cream in its appeal to the average consumer. Gelato is all natural, with fewer calories than ice cream. It is served at a higher temperature than ice cream which thereby provides a more intense flavor. The number of gelato shops in the city of Toronto has more than doubled in the last 10 years and will continue to grow as more and more people become aware of all the benefits of the product.
The ideal franchisee is a self-starter. He/She is a confident person who believes enough in themselves to have the confidence to take that step into independent business but also have the wisdom to seek help and guidance when they need it. We are looking for the individual who wants to nurture the growth of their business within the framework and model of The Mad Italian Philosophy.
