The Dolly Llama, an artisanal waffle and ice cream concept, has announced the signing of a multi-unit deal to bring four new locations across Nevada and California. The brand will enter Nevada for the first time in Reno and Lake Tahoe and will build on its Californian presence in Sacramento. The brand aims to open all four units in early 2022, along with the existing units currently in development in Pennsylvania, Florida and Texas.
“This year has been a significant year for growth for The Dolly Llama brand and we’re not stopping anytime soon,” said co-founder Eric Shomof.
“We’re on a mission to bring our playful desserts to every market across the country and therefore very excited to ink this new deal to expand in our home state and beyond. We are confident in our franchisee team and partners to grow The Dolly Llama even further in 2022 and can’t wait to introduce our unique ice cream and waffle desserts to these new communities in the new year.”
The Dolly Llama brand was founded by Eric Shomof and Samuel Baroux, a restauranteur who wanted to bring his passion for food to the U.S. The brand currently operates in California, with multiple locations in Downtown Los Angeles.
