local gourmet gelato business with multiple area stores will open its fourth location in Scott’s Addition next month. The latest store, which will be located across from the Bow Tie Movieland multiplex at 1400 N. Boulevard, is the former home of ARC Document Solutions. Door are scheduled to open February 9th.

The Scott’s Addition location will be the largest yet, coming in at 2,200 square feet. Using historic tax credits, the building has been restored to its former glory and will feature a large, original garage door that will open from the storefront to a patio near the rear of the building. Co-owner Steve Rosser described the undertaking as a “major renovation” in an interview we conducted with him in January of last year.

He says he and his wife Kim have been searching for a location within the city limits for several years, but couldn’t find a suitable location with enough parking. Scott’s Addition seemed the perfect fit.

“We’re confident we will have ample parking for our customers at this location,” Rosser said. “Scott’s Addition is a hot neighborhood. We like the association with the other businesses coming into the neighborhood, and we’ll be central to The Fan, Northside, and the Malvern area.”

The Boulevard location was originally scheduled to open in August of 2016.

Gelati Celesti opened its first location in 1984 on West Broad Street in what is now known as Gold’s Gym Plaza (Loehmann’s Plaza at the time). The company then expanded to Bon Air in 2012 and Short Pump in 2014. They also operate a food truck.

The Scott’s Addition location’s hours will be Sunday through Thursday from noon until 10:00 PM; Friday and Saturday noon until 11:00 PM.
