Founded in 2008, Creams celebrates the fun, colourful and delicious. 

We specialise in all things desserts, with Milkshakes, Freakshakes, Waffles, Crepes, Sundaes and Cookie Dough on our core menu. We make all our Italian style Gelato and Sorbets in our factory in East London, with 24 flavours available. We use only the best ingredients imported from Italy and handcrafted into some of the UK’s best Gelato’s and Sorbets.

In 2018 we were nominated for “High Growth Company of the Year” at the UK Private Business Awards, in 2017 shortlisted for the “Rising Star of the Year Award” the previous year and recognised in Savanta’s top 10 “most love eating out brands” in 2019 and 2020.

In 2020, we served more than 5 million customers, dishing out over 50 million scoops of gelato and 8.6 million milkshakes. We also had one of our most successful and busiest years.

Pistachio Holdings acquired a majority stake in the business in 2020 , to support in taking it to the next level, driving its ambitions for international and further UK expansion.
