Bromley FC attend launch of Unico

  • Club

On Monday 9th November, Unico officially launched their new café with former Chelsea FC player and Unico’s co-founder Gianfranco Zola, OBE.

Bromley FC were represented by Assistant Manager Neil Smith who presented Gianfranco with a special edition Bromley replica shirt accompanied with ‘Zola’ and the number 25 on the back. A short video from the morning will be online later this week.

Unico is a café with a difference. With its roots in Bologna, Italian capital of gelato, the store has established itself as a firm favourite with Bromley residents since its recent opening. Zola believes Unico Bromley residents’ favourite and is paving the way to a gelato revolution in the UK.

“I am excited to bring the flavours that I love to Bromley,” says Gianfranco Zola. “Unico was born from the friendship of myself, Leonardo and Elena and her family and our desire to bring the Italian tradition of gelato making to the UK.”

Gianfranco Zola says in particular he wanted to share his passion for this classic Italian dessert with the UK, a country that welcomed him and helped him launch his illustrious career 30 years ago.

Unico’s gelato is made fresh in-store every day. Most ingredients are locally sourced, both to ensure freshness and to support the borough’s local businesses, while others, such as pistachios and hazelnuts, come directly from Italy for their excellent quality and taste. Already available to take away in tubs and cool bags that keep the products cold for up to an hour, Unico’s range will soon be available for home delivery, giving South London residents the opportunity to enjoy authentic Italian fare at home.

Aside from gelato, Unico also prepares fresh coffee, cakes, sandwiches, pastries and ice-cream cakes. Fine coffee blends are sourced from independent producers all around the world and prepared by Unico’s baristas, who specialise in the knowledge of pairing particular blends of coffee with gelato flavours. Unico’s resident pastry chef designs and bakes personalised gelato cakes, a famously Italian birthday tradition, suitable for all kinds of special occasions and available to order in store.
