Tysons now has its first ChocoGelateria.
Venchi Fine Italian Chocolates officially opened its new chocolate and gelato shop at Tysons Corner Center around noon today (Wednesday), slightly behind the late summer opening anticipated when the store was first announced.
Located in the former Blue Nile showroom near Macy’s on the mall’s second floor, the store is open from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. on all days except for Sundays, when it will operate from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
This is first U.S. location outside of the New York tri-state area for Venchi, an Italian chocolate manufacturer that has been in operation since 1878. The company has developed 350 chocolate recipies and 90 different flavors of gelato that it sells in 150 retail boutiques in 70 countries.
“Venchi is thrilled to be expanding beyond the New York Tri-State area to a community as dynamic and global as Fairfax County,” Venchi Chief Commercial Officer Mark Ellis said in a statement. “We are excited to be a part of the Tysons Corner community and share the flavors of the Italian Allegria (joy and happiness) with the world.”
Here’s what the Tysons store will offer, according to a press release:
Tysons Corner Center shoppers will be able to enjoy some of the world’s finest chocolate, Gelato, European coffee, hot chocolate, crepes, and more, designed to create everyday unforgettable moments of sharing and celebration. And just in time for the holidays, Venchi will also soon be selling its exciting Holiday Collection of chocolates — all manufactured in Italy — which is perfect for gift-giving.
The brand is noted for its incredible Gelato and its most popular flavors include (Cremino, Pistachio, Hazelnut, Chocoviar, and Mango). Tysons Corner Center shoppers can stop in to sample a few Gelato flavors before deciding to order their favorite — available in a cup or in Venchi’s own cone dipped in Suprema spread and Chocoviar granules. It is the ultimate treat!
Venchi’s ChocoGelateria at Tysons Corner will also be selling a variety of Pick and Mix individual chocolates, it’s new Italian Dessert Collection of chocolates, a variety of chocolate bars, Suprema Spread, hot chocolate, crepes made with the Suprema Spread, and more.
