The Multi-Unit Franchise Deal Will Bring Nitrogen Ice Cream Scoop Shops To Neighborhoods Across Los Angeles

Cauldron Ice Cream Widens Southern California Footprint with New Location in PasadenaCauldron Ice Cream, the Orange County-based ice cream shop known for its innovative flavors and viral OG Puffle Cone, has announced a multi-unit franchise deal for Los Angeles County. The first location is slated to open at 526 South Lake Avenue in Pasadena in late Summer, and franchisees Al Zak and Farnaz Fazeli are also plotting future locations in Hollywood and Alhambra.

“We watched Cauldron Ice Cream quickly explode across Southern California, and knew it was a brand we wanted to get behind,” said Zak. “Los Angeles has one of the country’s greatest foodie cultures, especially favoring concepts with as much innovation and creativity as Cauldron, so we have full faith and confidence that the brand will continue to win over crowds in Pasadena and the greater Los Angeles area.”

Cauldron’s creative ice cream concoctions first burst onto the dessert scene in 2015. Within weeks of opening its first location in Orange County, Cauldron’s OG Puffle Cone was featured on Cosmopolitan magazine’s website, giving the egg-based puffed waffle cone its first dose of viral fame. People Magazine, Bustle, Huffington Post, and Eater quickly followed, also noting Cauldron’s unique flavor offerings like Earl Grey Lavender, Milk and Cereal, and Vietnamese Coffee. Each flavor is made in individual batches using liquid nitrogen technology, resulting in an ultra-creamy texture and made-to-order experience for each guest. Scoops can be served in a cup, or for maximum Insta-worthiness, shaped like a rose in one of Cauldron’s signature OG Puffle Cones.

The nitrogen ice cream brand is currently developing locations across California, from Santa Clara County in the north to Los Angeles, Orange, and San Diego Counties in the south. The concept is also expanding into Dallas in the coming months, and recently opened its first international store in Toronto, Canada.  In addition to Toronto, Cauldron currently operates four California locations in Santa Ana, Artesia, Kearny Mesa, and Glendale.

Cauldron Ice Cream is 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. The concept is currently looking for experienced multi-unit foodservice operators to develop franchise territories in major markets.

Cauldron Ice Cream’s plan was to invent a new style of ice cream that people had never seen before. With advanced technology, they consistently provide what is described to be one of the creamiest and most flavorful ice cream options. The ice-cream shop has been featured on the Food Network, and in both Cosmopolitan and People Magazines. Alyson Escobar, writer of the LA times, stated the puffle cone put “O.C. on the dessert map.” For more information about Cauldron Ice Cream, visit www.cauldronicecream.com.
