More Bella Gelateria locations planned for Vancouver, L.A., and Asia


Bella Gelateria may have just opened their second location this summer, but they are already looking to expand locally and globally.

Gelato masker and business owner James Coleridge opened up his first shop in 2010 in Coal Harbour, and took his brand to a whole new level with his Yaletown location, adding pizza and his new signature cocktail the Gelatini to the menu.

Next up, reports BC Business, is a West Vancouver outpost slated for late 2016, followed by ones in Kitsilano and on Main Street. But wait–there’s more:

In the future, Coleridge plans to bring Bella Gelateria to a global market by opening up the first international location in Los Angeles, as well as eventually taking the business to Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong.

So long as Coleridge is able to stick to his vision and his philosophy of using the best of fresh, local ingredients for his artisanal gelato-making, looks like it won’t be too long before Vancouver’s best gelato will be scooped up around the world.
