Also in attendance was the Venice Chamber of Commerce, which conducted the ribbon cutting ceremony alongside Locali owners Melissa Adele Rosen and Greg Horos.

With this new opening, Locali Conscious Convenience which was conceptualized as a "7-Eleven meets Whole Foods," has brought its popular concept to the Westside. Locali’s Hollywood location on Franklin is a celeb hotspot and has been a smash success, especially considering its tiny size of just 650 square feet. Focused on organic, natural, healthy ingredients including many vegan and gluten-free options, Locali offers a something for everyone. Their deli meats are of the highest quality - antibiotic, hormone, filler, gluten and casein free. The tuna is wild-caught, certified dolphin safe. The vegan cheese is soy and gluten-free. The produce and spices are certified organic and cutting edge vegan proteins like Beyond Meat are used regularly.
