Cha Cha Matcha is opening a third Los Angeles location in Century City, located at 10250 Santa Monica Blvd. Ste. 1625.
The new location will move into the first floor of the Westfield Century City Shopping Center in Spring 2022, according to Toddrickallen. This will be the seventh overall location, with four stores in New York City, where the company’s first store opened in 2016. Since then, co-founders Conrad Sandelman and Matthew Morton have expanded to Los Angeles with locations in Venice and West Hollywood. The new store will replace Compartes Chocolates, which closed early into the pandemic.
