Santiago de Compostela, 16th November, 2017.

 Ginos, the Grupo Vips brand which specializes in Italian cuisine, has just landed in Galicia with the opening of its first restaurant in Santiago de Compostela in the As Cancelas shopping mall.

Thus, Ginos is taking its updated authentic Italian cuisine offering to Santiago with dishes made to order with quality ingredients served in a modern and cozy 420 m2 location with the capacity for 180 diners (160 in the dining room and 24 on the terrace).

This opening, which created 22 jobs, is part of the expansion plan the brand is currently immersed in with expectations to open some twenty new restaurants throughout Spain over the next year, both internally-owned and through collaboration with local franchisees. In the case of the new Ginos in Santiago, it is an internally-owned location; however, the brand is studying expansion in Galicia through franchising.

“The Ginos brand is fully immersed in a growth phase. Galicia is a priority region for the company, so we’re committed to it with a very ambitious offering. In fact, we’re currently talking with different local partners to assess the development of the concept with a mixed growth model where internally-owned restaurants can be compatible with franchising,” said Alberto Chamorro, CEO of Ginos.

The opening of the Ginos restaurant in Santiago reinforces the Grupo Vips growth strategy in the Galician region where it has inaugurated two VIPS Smart, one in As Cancelas as well as another in the Gran Via shopping mall in Vigo, and a Starbucks at the El Corte Inglés in Vigo in the last month. These openings are in addition to the VIPS restaurant and two Starbucks stores Grupo Vips already had in A Coruña.

The Ginos offering: Top quality recipes and a cosmopolitan atmosphere

Ginos has opened at As Cancelas with the brand’s all-new renovated image, which is known for an urban style that has very little to do with traditional trattoria decor. It’s a very cosmopolitan country-industrial design, inspired by the trends being seen in the most cutting-edge cities such as London and New York, which plays with a mix of materials, atmospheres and lights to create a modern and cozy setting.

The Ginos culinary offering is known for its authentic Italian recipes where artisan processes predominate the preparation of their dishes, made to order with intense flavor in an open-view oven. Their dishes are made with top quality raw materials and ingredients, including references directly imported from Italy such as the dry and fresh pasta from Puglia, arrototala (rolled) pancetta bacon and the Pecorino, Parmiggiano, Emilia Romagna and 100% buffalo mozzarella cheeses from southern Italy used in some of its pizza and pasta recipes.

Plus, Ginos has a re-worked and award-winning gluten-free menu which includes versions of some of their most iconic dishes like their famous Cioccolatissimo, an offer that was recently recognized by the Spanish Federation of Coeliac Disease Associations (FACE) in the latest edition of their annual awards.
