Bakery café is Silver Spring’s first; grand opening yesterday
It’s a childhood staple that’s as American as apple pie, and its mouthwatering aroma has an uncanny way of triggering memories instilled by generations of mothers and grandmothers who know what it means to bake with love.
Fortunately, children of all ages can now relive their warm memories of chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven at the Westfield Wheaton shopping mall in Silver Spring, thanks to the arrival of a new Nestlé Toll House Café by Chip. The popular bakery café chain celebrated its grand opening in the center court, first level, Thursday, July 30, with several fun activities and plenty of giveaways.
Franchisee Trevor Jones was eager to serve up smiles to bustling shoppers with the café’s freshly baked treats, delicious specialty coffees and savory meal offerings.
“We want the shoppers here to see us as a place to escape from the hustle and bustle, and relax with an indulgent treat and a cup of fresh, premium coffee,” said Jones. “After all, it’s hard to beat a Nestlé Toll House cookie fresh out of the oven, along with a delicious Milano coffee.”
The new café is one of the first across the country to feature the chain’s enhanced kiosk concept, including digital menus displayed on four LED screens and an upgraded design that showcases the concept’s distinctive product offerings in a more efficient and attractive manner. Seating is available around the kiosk to allow for a place to recharge.
“We’re very pleased to bring our bakery café to Silver Spring and to the beautiful Wheaton Mall in particular,” said Shawnon Bellah, Chief Operating Officer for Crest Foods, Inc., the franchisor of Nestlé Toll House Café by Chip. “We have a very popular café in Tysons Corner, but this is our first location in Silver Spring. I have no doubt Trevor and his team are going to be very welcome additions to the center court!”
