Employee Lindsay Holtz holds a homemade waffle cone with a seasonal pumpkin offering at Gelati Celesti. Steve Rosser is owner of Gelati Celesti. The local ice cream retailer was named "Companies to Watch" by the Richmond Venture Forum. He has 3 locations and a fourth planned. The photos were taken at the Short Pump location on West Broad Street.

It's been just over a year since Gelati Celesti Ice Cream announced that it was opening a location in Scott's Addition - and now there's an opening date.

The fourth location of the ice cream shop at 1400 N. Boulevard will open on Thursday, Feb. 9.

"Our fourth store is our largest space to date and celebrates the industrial vibe and spirit of craft that defines the neighborhood. In fact, we’re partnering with many of the neighboring breweries, distilleries, and coffee roasters to create locally inspired ice cream flavors," Heidi LaSalata, marketing manager for the Richmond company, wrote in the news release.
