Hans & Gretel is a global dessert franchise that offers fairytale-style sweet creations. Apart from its decadent sweet offerings, it is widely known for its shops decked with giant desserts and themed decor such as lollipops, marshmallows, and candies. The whole idea of the fairy tale dessert shop is inspired by the famous Hansel & Gretel kids story.
“We are spreading the sweetness around Dubai,” said John Jossifakis, Managing Director of Hans & Gretel International and owner of the Dubai franchise location. “Our new shop will satisfy your sweet cravings. Are you hungry for magic, visit our shops and we will show you that dreams do come true!”
Among the sweet creations that Hans & Gretel offers are chimney cakes (sweet bread shaped like a chimney and rolled in cinnamon sugar), bubble waffles, artisanal gelato, cotton candy clouds, slushies of various flavors, Belgian chocolates and pralines, caramelized apples, and walnuts, as well as crepes, mini pancakes, biscuits, and candies of various kinds, shapes, sizes, and textures. These delectable sweets, found on the website http://www.hansandgretel.me, are of different origins. Hans & Gretel’s heroes searched far and wide to bring the dreamiest sweets to children of all ages in all places. These sweets originally came from various parts of the globe, such as the Czech Republic, England, Italy, Belgium, Canada, and America.
With the launch of its 20th store, Hans & Gretel promises to spread the fairy tale magic to its patrons at City Centre Mirdif, Dubai. The new shop will have the same magical feel as all the other Hans & Gretel shops. Decked with giant sweets decorations, the 20th shop will have the same trademark thematic décor that makes everyone feel like they are in the fairy tale candy land. The staff will also be clad in their signature Hans & Gretel uniforms that reflect the storybook characters while serving the guests dreams.
Hans & Gretel’s dessert shop originated in Greece in 2017 by CEO / Founder Thanasis Anyfantis and CFO / Co-Founder Alexandros Papagiannakis. Its first shop was received very well by children and adults alike that plans of opening another shop were in the works in a short period. Now it has several shops in Greece alone. From there, Hans & Gretel made its way to Cyprus, and later, Turkey. Eventually, Hans & Gretel started sweetening the United Kingdom and continued to add more branches globally.
The opening of the new candy land shop in Dubai is part of the international development plans that Hans & Gretel has. The Jossifakis reveals that aside from taking over the Middle East, the dessert franchise has other expansion plans in the pipeline and a wish to reach soon over 30 locations. Hans & Gretel is already looking into sweetening Canada and America in the coming months with its over-the-top dessert offerings. North America and Asian are now the core focus.
