Paciugo Gelato to Reopen at West 7th

FORT WORTH, Texas (May 9, 2012) – West 7th, the vibrant mixed-use development located at the southeast corner of University Drive and West 7th Street, announced today that Paciugo Gelato will be reopening this month under new management at its Crockett Street location.

Fort Worth-based franchisees Yen and Huong Tran will reopen the existing storefront at 2926 Crockett Street on Friday, May 11, 2012.

“Very soon, visitors to West 7th will once again be able to enjoy their favorite gelato and sorbet the traditional Italian way, with the freshest fruits and all-natural ingredients,” states Huong Bui. “This light, unbelievable smooth frozen dessert contains 70% less fat than ice cream.”

In addition to gelato, the shop will offer Paciugo Caffé, a line of smooth, full-bodied coffees and specialty beverages. Paciugo Caffé is made with 100 percent ethically grown Arabica coffee beans that are produced by farmers in premier growing areas in Africa and East Asia. Customers may pair espresso or hot chocolate with their favorite Paciugo gelato flavor to make their very own specialty Caffé drink. No syrups or other artificial flavorings are ever used.

Plus, the West 7th location will open at 8:00 a.m. Monday through Friday to serve coffee along with breakfast pastries for their morning guests.

“Our team is excited to have Paciugo reopen at West 7th under the management of a new franchise team,” states Michael Wheat, executive vice president and director of leasing for Cypress Equities, the developer of West 7th. “Shoppers had been quite vocal about the store’s popularity following its closure earlier this year.”

The 13-acre development is located on 7th Street and University Drive near the Fort Worth business and cultural districts.
