The Cream and Fudge Factory

The Cream & Fudge Factory is one of the numerous brands of the Swiss-based company, Global Franchise Architects. The brand was brought to Bangladesh by ICE Retail Initiative Ltd and since its inception on 12 March, 2011 at Banani, the ice cream shop has not looked back.

They have developed a loyal base of customers from all over the city. It is their support and immense love that has helped the brand expand and open another branch at Bailey Road within a year. But the increasing and overwhelming demand requires them to expand further and hence they have decided to open shops at Dhanmondi and Uttara very soon.

The shop allows their customers to choose from a variety of ice cream flavours along with choices of mix-ins like nuts, candies and fudges which are then hand-folded with the ice cream over a frozen marble stone. Along with this customisable option, they also provide a list of their own creations which can be ordered by the customers and enjoyed fresh.

The Cream & Fudge Factory is also renowned for their out-of-the-box promotional activities. For the first time ever, they have launched a collection of 6 different luscious creations in their menu. The launching event was graced by renowned TV personalities Towkir Ahmed and Bipasha Hayat, who spoke about how the unique concept they have brought about has created an amazing ice cream parlour experience for people to enjoy and has won the heart of many an ice cream fanatic.

Along with their 23 signature creations and the 6 new ones, they also offer creamy milkshakes and the finest quality coffee.
