So long, frozen yogurt. The latest trend is Thailand’s rolled ice cream.
The Boston Globe - 08/30/2016
Frollz is owned by Elias Brassitos and managed by his brother, Hikmat. Brassitos, a graduate student at Northeastern University studying mechanical engineering, first came up with the idea to sell the cylindrical treat after seeing it made online.
“We’ve all watched those YouTube videos,” Brassitos said. “I had the idea: Why not actually do this thing?”
After months of scouting locations in Braintree and on Boston’s Newbury Street, Brassitos finally settled on Square One Mall due to cost and space availability. He put his engineering skills to work and built the kiosk almost entirely on his own, preparing for the December opening. Since then, business has been, well, rolling in.
