Alicante, 27th June, 2018.

Ginos, the Grupo Vips brand which specializes in Italian cuisine, has inaugurated its first restaurant in the Alicante neighborhood of Garbinet at Plaza de Alcalde Agatángelo Soler número 6. The brand wanted to celebrate its arrival in the neighborhood by inviting its first customers to try the famous Ginos artisan pizzas and pastas.

The opening of this new location, which created 15 jobs, is part of the expansion plan for the brand in the Levante region where it already has 12 locations, 5 of which are in the province of Alicante, and where it plans to continue an intense pace of openings this year with both internally-owned restaurants and franchises.

This restaurant has more than 300 m2 distributed among two floors with a capacity for 134 customers (118 in the dining room and 16 on the terrace). It is designed with the brand’s all-new image with a modern and urban interior design without giving up on the cozy and warm spirit that has always been typical of Ginos.

The Ginos offering: Top quality recipes and a cosmopolitan atmosphere

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. Moreover, Ginos has just added an all-new 100% whole grain pizza crust to its menu as one more step towards its commitment to innovation which seeks to offer varied, artisan and quality options to adapt to new trends and its customers’ needs. The 100% whole grain pizza crust has a higher mineral, vitamin, protein and fiber content due to the unrefined whole wheat.

Ginos also has a re-worked and award-winning gluten-free menu which includes versions of some of their most iconic dishes like their famous Cioccolatissimo.
