CREAM’s third South Florida location is now open in Pembroke Pines.
Ice cream is just about everybody’s favorite sweet, so it’s no surprise locals were mobbing the premises as the celebrated ice cream sandwich franchise CREAM opened the doors to its brand-new Pembroke Pines location in December. The sweet shop quickly gained major momentum when it landed on the scene in South Florida two years ago, drawing crowds who clamored for their ice cream sandwiches made with warm, freshly baked cookies, brownies, waffl es and do’sants. CREAM Pembroke Pines is the third of its kind to open in Florida, with all three locations owned and operated by the Martinez family and partners. The idea to bring the booming West Coast ice cream business to South Florida initially began as a DECA high school project for then-sophomore Armando Martinez Jr. With the help of his mother and father, Corina and Armando Sr., and younger brother, Tomas, as well as their partners the dream of opening a CREAM franchise became a reality when they opened their fi rst CREAM store in Aventura in 2016 and a second location in Weston the following year. CREAM Pembroke Pines is located at 306 SW 145th Ave., Suite 118, Pembroke Pines; visit creamnation.com.
