Chez Goloso- Discovering the Taste of Italy Right Here in Acadie

Originating from the Italian word for “sweet tooth” Chez Goloso, a business specializing in homemade gelatos, is delighting taste buds.  Friends Nadine Roy Cormier and Hélène Haché always knew that they would like to open a business together, but after a trip to Italy, their business idea became clear. They decided to take the Italian “joie de vie” and create a European experience right here in downtown Caraquet. 
           
Chez Goloso is opened seasonally from May to December and this is their second season in operation. The dynamic duo began the research phase for this unique enterprise in May of 2009 and officially launched the following summer in July 2010. They have seven employees (four who work full-time and five students).
            When asked three words to describe her business, Nadine highlights, “Quality, freshness and customer service.” Chez Goloso prides itself on using top quality products that are fresh and healthy as well as offering customers with an ambiance to enhance their dining experience.
                Nadine and Hélène are thankful for the advice and resources received from the NB Association of CBDCs through Women in Business. With the help of Diane Vigneault, they were able to work with marketing consultants to create a three-year plan for their business.
            When asked what advice they would give to aspiring entrepreneurs, they said, “Do your homework and take advantage of the many resources that exist such as the local CBDC and Enterprise Network. Also seek a mentor, someone who has experience in your field. We work with an Italian mentor and can call upon him for advice if we have any questions.”
            The best advice they ever received was to “take your time and sometimes it is better to arrive slowly then to jump headfirst.”         
What’s in store for Chez Goloso in the next five years? “The future looks bright.” Nadine and Hélène would like to see it franchise throughout New Brunswick to popular tourist destinations such as Dieppe and Shediac. Ambitious plans for the young entrepreneurs who are both employed full-time at other locations (Nadine as a dental hygienist and Hélène as an entrepreneur.)
