November 23, 2016 // Franchising.com // BERKELEY, Cali. – CREAM, a San Francisco Bay Area-based dessert franchise is ready for the holiday season with a new Apple To My Pie ice cream, available immediately at all stores as a limited time offering. A vanilla ice cream with chunks of apple, real pieces of pie dough, and swirls of cinnamon create a deconstructed Apple Pie in a single scoop of ice cream.
With CREAM’s extensive offerings, there are multitudes of ways to enjoy Apple To My Pie ice cream. CREAM has also launched a cinnamon streusel topping option reminiscent of a Dutch Apple Pie topping. Apple To My Pie ice cream can be added to a milkshake, be part of a sundae with caramel sauce and streusel topping, or paired with a Do’sant to evoke an Apple Fritter taste. The pairings are endless, allowing each customer to enjoy a seasonal favorite without standing in the kitchen for hours.
“Apple Pie is a holiday season staple, from the Thanksgiving table throughout the New Year. We at CREAM thought it would be a great idea to create the same Apple Pie a la mode taste in a single scoop of ice cream,” said Co-founder and President, Gus Shamieh. “Paired with a warm cookie, like Snickerdoodle, this is a great option if you want the Apple Pie experience without all of the work!”
CREAM, which is an acronym for “Cookies Rule Everything Around Me,” offers a menu of over 22 ice cream flavors and 17 cookie flavors and over 19 toppings that customers can mix and match, including vegan and gluten-free options. While ice cream sandwiches using oven-baked cookies are the main draw, CREAM also has milkshakes, floats, other baked goods like the Do’Sant, waffles and of course, “The CREAM Taco,” a made freshly everyday waffle cone shaped like a taco loaded with ice cream and toppings. Since opening its first store in Berkeley in 2010, CREAM has expanded to 25 locations throughout California, Nevada, and Florida and has 30-40 stores under development.
Headquartered in the Bay Area, CREAM is a rapidly growing fast casual restaurant business that specializes in high quality ice cream sandwiches and other confections. Founded in 2010 and franchising since 2012, CREAM was named one of Nation’s Restaurant News’ “2015 Breakout Brands,” featured on CNBC’s “2016 Hot Franchises to Watch” list, and recognized by BuzzFeed as one of “27 Ice Cream Shops You Need To Visit Before You Die.” There are currently 25 locations open and operating throughout California, Nevada and Florida, with plans to expand its national footprint over the next several years.
