Giani's holds a strong share in the dessert market with more than 150+ stores across India & UAE.

Facilities at Gianis manufacturing unit include a continuous freezer,  filling stations and low-temperature hardening room. Its franchise fee falls between Rs. 2 to 5 lakhs. Giani holds an ideal share in the desert market thereby inviting various innovative ideas and business opportunities around the globe.

Who doesn’t love ice cream! And especially in the scorching weather of summers every person surely craves having one. Giani's is your destination and place you need to reach out to satisfy your craving for any cold beverage. It all began in 1956 at Giani-di-Hatti, nestled amidst the bazaars of Fatehpuri, Chandni Chowk, and still one of the landmarks of old Delhi. It was here that Giani Gurcharan Singh, a traditional sweetmeat maker from the then Layallpur (Faislabad), Pakistan, set up shop upon migrating to Delhi. He started serving his famous rabri-faluda and mango shakes, made with loving attention and dedication, with the best quality ingredients. This struck an instant chord with the discerning residents of the walled city and in no time at all, Giani (“the learned” in Punjabi), was a household name.

In 1962, Giani-di-Hatti bought its first machine - a second-hand one - but still a huge investment at Rs. 12,000. A few years later in 1970, the business was divided into two entities; Gurcharan Sons and Giani Ice Cream. In the same year, Giani Gurcharan Singh took over Giani Ice Cream and invited his eldest son Shri Gurbachan Singh, still an undergraduate, to join the business and augment the range of traditional desserts with ice cream flavours. The little enterprise’s success over the next two decades was a tribute to the business skills of Giani Gurcharan Singh who possessed a skill and art and made ice cream with his hands. It was an era when MP’s and celebrities such as Raj Kapoor and Mohammad Rafi would visit the shop to taste and soak in the atmosphere.

There has been plenty of times when we got featured in the media.
