Japanese ice cream chain Milkissimo to open Taiwan branch

Tainan, Dec. 28 (CNA) Japanese gelato chain Milkissimo announced Sunday it will open a branch in southern Taiwan as part of its expansion abroad. The new store at the T.S. Dream Mall shopping mall in Tainan City will begin operations on Dec. 30 and offer 11 Italian gelato flavors to local consumers initially, Milkissimo said, adding that up to 80 flavors will be served, based on the seasons going forward. Founded in July 2009, the Hokkaido-based Milkissimo has put a Japanese spin on the traditional Italian gelato by using more milk from the port city of Hakodate, giving it a smoother and creamier flavor. The opening of the Tainan branch will be the 13th store for Milkissimo, which has 11 stores in Japan and one in Hong Kong. (By Chang Jung-hsiang and Jeffrey Wu)
