Sinelli Concepts International has purchased Paciugo, a nearly 20-year-old Italian gelato franchise concept based in Dallas. Under the terms of the acquisition, Sinelli Concepts International takes ownership of the 32 locations spanning 10 states in the Paciugo franchise system.

This marks the second acquisition for Sinelli Concepts in as many years. In 2017, the company acquired and sold California-based Submarina. The company is led by Jeff Sinelli, who founded such restaurant chains as Which Wich Superior Sandwiches, Burguesa Burger and Genghis Grill.
