When we first opened in 1982, we were just a small Italian Sports bar serving 20 flavours in East Vancouver. La Casa Gelato was opened on Venables and expanded to 40 flavours.
Before long, we had 68 flavours, then 88, followed by 138. Vince who still owns and operates the store with his family, soon became known as “The Gelato King!” Of course, Vince being his perseverance self, didn’t stop there! He kept creating more and more until there were an iconic 168 flavours in the 90’s!
Today we have more flavours than any other ice cream shop in the WORLD! While we’ve created 588 flavours to date, we are the unofficial record holders with 238 flavours on location! And now we are making it official!
Each year Guiness hosts a world wide event known as “World Record Day” and this year the event is planned for November 14, 2019. GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS Day (GWR Day) is an annual celebration of record-breaking, a day which sees thousands of people around the world come together with one common goal, to become a title holder. This year, we will be joining the worldwide event and making our 238 flavours the “Official World Record” holder for the most commercially available ice cream flavours.
