“We’re absolutely delighted to have extended our long-standing partnership with The Royal Parks. Food and drink are an important part of everyone’s day, and we believe in pairing great tasting fresh food with a truly memorable experience," says Colicci director, Rob Colicci.
"By pioneering a ‘collection’ of revolutionary kiosks and cafés we have pushed the boundaries in design and architecture. Now you can buy your cup of coffee from a sculpture in the park.”
Colicci started life In 1982 as a single ice cream van, and now operates over 30 sites across London's parks. It owns Its own bakery, and supplies a collection of London venues.
