Creamistry to Open First Location in Buford
Liquid nitrogen ice cream franchise comes to the Mall of Georgia
April 30, 2018 // Franchising.com // IRVINE, Cali. - Creamistry - a California-based chain that specializes in made-to-order liquid nitrogen ice cream using all-natural and organic ingredients with more than 60+ flavors and toppings - has announced the opening of a new location in Buford, Georgia.
Slated to open early May at 3333 Buford Drive in the outdoor village area of the Mall of Georgia, the new store will be owned and operated by local couple Raj and Krina Patel with Chirag Patel, Krina’s brother, who with previous business experience plans to relocate to Buford from Canada to run the day-to-day operations with his sister.
“We’re so excited to bring Creamistry to Buford,” said owner Raj Patel who also background in medicine. “Creamistry’s liquid nitrogen concept makes ice cream smoother and creamier than any other traditional ice cream. The made to order ice cream is totally unique and very different than anything else we have here in Georgia.”
Creamistry was founded in 2013 after founder Jay Yim was first introduced to liquid nitrogen ice cream when he spotted a street vendor making it during a trip to South Korea in 2003. Born into a family of Korean bakers, Yim and his wife, Katie, made their first homemade ice cream using liquid nitrogen with the help of his father as the quality control “chemist.” Over the next two years, the team experimented with over a hundred flavors and combinations, the best of which eventually became an integral part of Creamistry’s menu today.
“As we continue to expand our presence nationally, it’s crucial to find the right franchise partners who are deeply passionate about the brand and are excited to promote our hand-crafted premium product,” added Yim. “We couldn’t be more excited to expand into Georgia and about our partnership with Chirag and Raj and know the local community will love it.”
Here’s how Creamistry works: Customers choose a portion size, then an ice cream base (premium, organic, coconut, or non-dairy sorbet), one of 30+ flavors, and then toppings from a list of 35+ options that include candy, cookies and cereal, fruits, and sauces. The ice cream is made right before the customer with a lot of billowing smoke thanks to the flash-freezing process. When the liquid nitrogen (-321° F) hits the base it freezes so fast that ice crystals don't have a chance to develop, resulting in a decadently rich and luxuriously creamy ice cream with virtually no overrun.
Founded in 2013 and franchising since 2014, Creamistry is an Irvine, California-based franchise that serves made-to-order liquid nitrogen ice cream using all natural and organic ingredients that can be customized with over 60+ flavors and toppings. Currently, there are more than 45 shops open and operating in four states, with more than 300 additional locations in various stages of development worldwide.
