Focus on...Kaspa's Desserts

A giant of the gelato craze has opened its doors in Hull as the first step in its invasion of Yorkshire.

Kaspa’s Desserts styles itself as the king of hot and cold treats from waffles and crepes to sundaes and smoothies, from single servings to a Birthday Extravaganza which will feed a party of children – or a mighty big appetite.

Hannah Foster, operations manager of the Yorkshire network of outlets, said: “It’s designed for children’s parties and will probably feed about 10, but some people like a challenge and a few elsewhere in the UK have managed it.”

The combination of each of Kaspa’s 15 flavours of gelato set with wafers, syrups and other sweet delights atop a bed of waffles costs a cool £27.95. More modestly priced single servings include cheesecakes from £2.95, crepes and waffles from £4, sundaes from £5.95 and milkshakes from £3.50.

The Kaspa’s franchise kicked off in London and is now being rolled out in Yorkshire. Hull is the region’s frontrunner, with Kaspa’s having moved into the two-storey building in Paragon Square previously occupied by Go Dutch Pancake House.

The new restaurant can seat 88 people with a stylish option of pink and black booths and has a small area for take-away service. Around the UK, the Kaspa’s creations have proved a hit with all ages and particularly with students, some of whom have snapped up jobs among the 30-strong workforce at the new restaurant.

Hannah said: “We don’t skimp. Our gelato comes from Italy exclusively for us. We are very proud of our product. It’s really high quality and a great way to spoil yourself.

“We’re also proud of the restaurant, and we’re putting a lot of effort into making sure everything is right for the opening. We’re hoping to open another site in Hull next year.”

Kathryn Shillito, HullBID city centre manager, said: “Kaspa’s is perfectly pitched to attract people of all ages with its glitzy décor and booth seating. It’s got the feel of an American diner and it’s brought a new dimension to the city centre by opening during the day and well into the evening, seven days a week. 

“It’s also a significant step in the transformation of Paragon Square, sitting nicely in between the more traditional Stanley’s Bourbon Craft and the new Domino’s restaurant and take-away which will open next month.”
