Cáceres, 17th October, 2017.


Ginos, the Grupo Vips brand which specializes in Italian food, opened its first restaurant today in Extremadura in collaboration with a local franchisee. The restaurant, which created 13 jobs, is located downtown Cáceres at no. 16 of the pedestrian street San Pedro de Alcántara, where it will have a lovely terrace.

Thus, Ginos has brought Cáceres for the first time ever its gastronomy offering, which is known for its made-to-order Italian recipes, which include quality products, imported directly from Italy, in a modern and cosmopolitan atmosphere that combines the warmth of its decor with a country-industrial inspiration.

The opening, which featured the participation of the Mayor of Cáceres, Elena Nevado, and the CEO of Ginos, Alberto Chamorro, is part of the expansion plan currently being implemented by the brand, which now has 110 locations throughout Spain, 80 of them internally-owned and 30 under franchising agreements.

The Mayor expressed her satisfaction at Grupo Vips deciding to set up its first Ginos restaurant in Extremadura in the capital city of Cáceres, which she considers “one more example of the opportunities offered by the city for investors”. Along these same lines, she emphasized that this restaurant increases the offering of services provided by the city in addition to “generating job opportunities, in this case at the hands of a local partner, which is also a source of great satisfaction”.

“We are very product to bring the Ginos offering to the heart of a city as outstanding as Cáceres, doing so in collaboration with local partners and being a part of such a lively street as San Pedro de Alcántara,” said Alberto Chamorro, CEO of Ginos.


Top quality recipes and a cosmopolitan atmosphere

Ginos has arrived in Cáceres 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, in the open-view oven where they prepare pizzas, bread and focaccia.

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.
