Jannettas Gelateria

Jannettas Gelateria

When it comes to ice-cream, Jannettas Gelateria is an institution.
This family business, which dates back to 1908, is built on passion.
Nicola and Owen Hazel have been running the business for over 20 years, continuing the family tradition of making only the best quality Gelato, creating new and delicious flavours and indulging their customers!

But Jannetta is not just about the much-loved takeaway ice-cream cone – they also have a fantastic café within their St Andrews premises and cater for a huge array of events from weddings and christenings to student balls, as well as supplying wholesale to a range of other businesses.


What we’ve done…

Jannettas approached Grainger PR in 2014, the year in which they decided to embark on a transformational refurbishment of their St Andrews premises.
I went on to secure a diverse portfolio of local and national coverage for the company from announcing their impressive and growing collection of awards to new, weird and wonderful flavours! They appeared in a host of newspapers (local and national), magazines, and on national TV and radio. Having been rooted in the St Andrews community for so long, Jannettas also love to give back to those on their doorstep, and it was a pleasure to shout about their fundraising achievements and local collaborations too.  Grainger PR and Jannettas called it a day at the end of 2016 – below is a list of the press releases I had the pleasure of issuing on their behalf…

What they’ve said…

Owen Hazel, Co-owner, Jannettas Gelateria said, “When we first approached Claire, we wondered if we would have enough news to shout about but, working in conjunction with our Business Development Manager, Claire has unearthed a whole host of PR opportunities for Jannettas and we are delighted with the results. Thanks to her contacts and strong news sense, our profile is higher and stronger than before which is generating more collaborations and opportunities as we move forwards. On a personal level, Claire is lovely to work with, and also gets the dynamic of the two cities we operate in, having spent much of her career in St Andrews, and originating from Perth.”
