Miami-based Gelato-Go will open two shops in Beverly Hills and Santa Monica this month. Italian-born owners Alessandro Alvino and Domenico DAddio started the chain in Miami back in 2013.
Gelato-Go’s jump into the West Coast market is a strategic one, by launching a vegan gelato line that they’ll only prepare in Los Angeles. The gelaterias serve more than frozen desserts, with espresso drinks, sandwiches, paninis, cakes, and cookies.
This is the third California location, after opening an Oceanside location in May this year. Gelato-Go’s Beverly Hills location used to be Pure Beverly Hills, the fast casual restaurant known for their “almost no calorie cake.” And the Santa Monica shop will turn over the former Didio’s Italian Ices space.
