Irvine Cauldron Ice Cream Grand Opening


Cauldron Ice Cream, the rapidly growing Orange County-based scoop shop known for its made-to-order nitrogen ice cream, innovative flavors, and viral OG Puffle cone, will open doors at its new Irvine, California, location (14001 Jeffrey Rd.) on Saturday, January 12. The new location will host a grand opening celebration from 3 – 10 p.m., offering exclusive Cauldron Ice Cream merchandise and giveaways to the first 100 people in line.

“Our goal is to create a truly memorable experience for each guest, whether they’re enjoying a bold flavor like Earl Grey Lavender or trying our newly launched ‘Fluffypuff’ – a Japanese fluffy pancake ice cream sandwich,” said James Ho, founder and CEO of the Cauldron Collective franchise group. “Irvine is the ideal location for our unique twist on a classic treat, and we look forward to welcoming the community to try our delicious, creative ice cream flavors.”

The Irvine location is the second of three stores to open under Cauldron Collective, a franchise organization comprised of James Ho, Dan Nguyen, and Steven Cao. The group is exploring prospective locations for one additional Cauldron Ice Cream store that will open in Orange County in the next year.

Despite only joining the scene in 2015, Cauldron Ice Cream quickly made a splash in the media with features in Cosmopolitan, People Magazine, Food Network, and more for its creative flavor offerings and unique presentation. The concept’s small batch flavors include a mixture of unique mainstays, like Earl Grey Lavender, Milk and Cereal, and H20 Rose, while also offering seasonally rotating flavors to keep the menu fresh and intriguing. The ice cream is served as traditional or rose-shaped scoops in Cauldron Ice Cream’s signature OG Puffle Cone, an egg-based waffle cone inspired by a popular Hong Kong street snack.

Cauldron Ice Cream currently operates locations in Santa Ana, Artesia, Glendale, Pasadena, Temple City and Chino Hills, with over 20 units coming to Canada, Texas and California.

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.
