Cauldron Ice Cream, the popular Santa Ana based ice cream shop, announced they have signed lease for the Glendale market. The first location of the multi-unit deal is expected to open in July 2017 and will be located at 204 N Brand Blvd. Glendale, California.
Cauldron was founded on the mission to use technology and new ideas to re-imagine the way people enjoy ice cream. Founders Terence Lioe and Desiree Le constantly integrate innovative new technologies which create the best ice cream and customer experience possible. These innovations include using liquid nitrogen to flash freeze fresh ice cream mix to -300° F in front of the customer, and creating a custom computer control system which regulates the blending and mixing of liquid nitrogen and ice cream mix.
The progressive ice cream shop focuses on product and presentation innovation as well. The Puffle Cone, inspired by Hong Kong’s famous egg waffles, is Cauldron’s response to the traditional ice cream cone. The golden-brown reverse "puffy waffles" are made to order, look great on social media, and come in three flavors: original, red velvet, and churro. Cauldron also rotates new ice cream flavors monthly and has built a following due to innovative concotions like Earl Grey Lavender and Sea Salted Caramel Crunch.
The Glendale franchisee, Jack Liu, has been a fan of Cauldron since it opened in 2015 and is excited to bring the delicious ice cream to Glendale. “Cauldron’s ice cream is delicious and offers so many flavors, I’m excited to be open in July and have amazing ice cream for the summer,” said Jack.
Fransmart will serve as Cauldron’s exclusive franchise development partner and is the franchise development company behind the explosive growth of brands like Five Guys Burgers and Fries. Cauldron is currently looking for experienced and enthusiastic multi-unit food service operators to develop franchise territories in major markets across the United States and internationally.
