After sitting and talking with both CEO’s and devouring multiple taste tests, it is clear why this Italian desert chain is so successful. Owners Guido Martinetti and Frederico Grom, started their company nearly 8 years ago. With just an idea and humble beginnings, the two owners brought back “old-fashioned” gelato. Returning to the roots of the Italian frozen desert, they combined premium, organic ingredients, processing it by hand and focusing mainly on quality control. The proof is in the pudding. It’s to die for!
The mass buzz surrounding the opening in New York, was followed by enormous lines outside their store in Shinjuku. As a fellow citizen in queue, I can confirm it was well worth the wait! So I was thrilled to partake in the grand opening of GROM in Shibuya with friends, fellow fashionistas and bloggers. OISHIKATTA!!
