Cauldron, the popular Santa Ana-based, handcrafted ice-cream shop known for innovative flavors of nitrogen ice cream, their famous OG Puffle cone, and lines out the door, is now open in Artesia, California. The new shop, located at 12154 Artesia Blvd, Ste B, is the company's second corporate store.
Cauldron Ice Cream, which was founded in 2015 by Terence Lioe and Desiree Le, quickly gained popularity through its unique and seasonal flavors of homemade, all natural ice cream made in small batches with liquid nitrogen. Customer favorites include Sea Salted Caramel, Earl Grey Lavender, and S’mores ice cream in the OG Puffle Cone, which is inspired by a Hong Kong egg waffle. This photogenic dish has been featured in numerous publications including Cosmopolitan, LA Times, and People Magazine, as well as “gone viral” on social media.
The modernized ice cream shop recently partnered with Fransmart, the industry leading franchise development company behind the explosive growth of brands like Five Guys Burgers and Fries, The Halal Guys, and Qdoba Mexican Grill, as their exclusive franchise development partner to grow the brand in every major U.S. market. In addition to their newest location, Cauldron plans to open another corporate store in Chino Hills and is set to open their first franchise location this October in Glendale, California.
