A 15-minute walk from New Jersey City University to Mallory Avenue is where three Jersey City natives' aspirations came to life.
Peter Jose, Lekendrick Shaw and Ivan Almonte held a grand opening on June 23 for their Jersey & Co. Gelato store at 55 Mallory Ave. The shop serves homemade gelatos, vegan sorbets, as well as cappuccinos and espressos.
"We wanted to offer an amenity that wasn't being offered in the area," Shaw, 26, said.
Gelato flavors include classic Italian tastes such as straciatella and pistachio, as well as unique combinations like kibana, a kiwi/banana blend, and p'chango, a peach/mango sorbet.
Jose and Shaw met at NJCU, where they were members of the Student Investment Management Group and analyzed the stock market. Shaw was an analyst while Jose was president of the group.https://www.nj.com/jjournal-news/index ... dsopen_gelato_shop_i.html
