LAS VEGAS (Nov. 24, 2014) – Sticks & Shakes™ has innovatively brought the trendy European milkshake bar concept to the U.S. with its first two locations in Las Vegas; the first at the Galleria at Sunset (1300 W. Sunset Road) and the newly opened second location at Fashion Show Mall on the Strip (3200 Las Vegas Blvd.). The milkshake bar is the latest gourmet dessert movement appealing to tourists, families and locals of all ages. Offering a unique line of original desserts, Sticks & Shakes are contemporary handcrafted treats where patrons custom-design as their own delectable creation. From customizing dessert sticks to designing hundreds of milkshakes, Sticks & Shakes has begun a new social dessert culture.
Drawing from the eco-friendly and inventive Popsicle® idea, Sticks & Shakes offers custom stick options, where customers choose toppings including chocolate sprinkles, Oreo® cookie crumbs or hazelnuts to cover distinct gelato, sorbet and cake-based sticks. Special dietary measures have been considered and desserts are available in gluten free, dairy free, vegan or sugar free options. For the adult palate, sorbet and gelato sticks can be infused with alcohol to create unique cocktail favorites like piña colada or mixed berry Long Island iced tea.
“We’ve made a grand entrance into the dessert marketplace here in Las Vegas and we couldn’t be more excited,” says Mark Glassman, Sticks and Shakes founder and CEO.”The company has built a successful business model that has something for everyone and with unlimited potential. The concept is simple – if it can be mixed, it can be made! The customers are the designers, if you will, and we can’t wait to see the creativity out there.”
A visionary and successful entrepreneur from the United Kingdom, Glassman saw an emerging market in milkshake bars throughout Europe and brought it to the Las Vegas forefront. Developing more than 500 milkshake combinations with a vast candy bar selection, customers become their own “milkshake designers” by choosing their favorite ingredients. Starting with a neutral gelato base, a flavorful chocolate shake can be blended with a Butterfinger®, Twix® and Hershey Bar® or for something sweeter with a fruit flavor blast, Skittles® and Jolly Ranchers® are a great choice. Sticks & Shakes has established a pre-designed menu of signature items including UK milkshakes blended with premium British chocolate and their Shock Shakes™ combining Red Bull®, Pop Rocks® and Sour Skittles® for the customer wanting that extra kick or pick-me-up.
Sticks & Shakes™ locations are open from 10 a.m.-9 p.m., Monday-Saturday. Sunday hours are 11 a.m.-6 p.m. at the Galleria at Sunset and 11 a.m. -7 p.m. at Fashion Show Mall. For more company information please visit sticksandshakes.com.
