Dumont Creamery And Cafe Plans Expansion To Plano, Texas

Construction could begin as early as mid-July 2024

Indian ice cream shop, Dumont Creamery and Cafe, is expected to expand its presence in North Texas, with plans to open a second location in Plano.

According to a June 4 filing with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (via WFAA), a new store is planned at 8400 Preston Road, Suite #150, in Plano. Construction could commence as early as mid-July, with completion anticipated around mid-October. 

The 1,640-square-foot space was previously occupied by the dessert spot Dolly Llama, which closed in December 2023 after only a few months of operation. Dolly Llama, known for its sweet waffles with unique toppings, still has another Dallas location in Uptown.

Construction for the ice cream store will involve renovating the former restaurant space, including updates to paint finishes, wall partitions, and kitchen finishes. The estimated project cost is approximately $100,000. It's important to note that information in TDLR filings is often preliminary and may change.

Dumont Creamery and Cafe debuted its inaugural U.S. location in Frisco at 1951 FM 423, toward the end of 2023. 

According to Dumont, the ice cream brand originated in Hyderabad, India, conceived by brothers Vivek and Bhaskar Imampudi. It has since evolved into one of India’s largest ice cream production facilities, with a capacity to churn out over 3,000 liters of ice cream per hour.

In addition to ice cream, the U.S. locations also serve bubble tea and coffee. Popular flavors for their ice cream include classics such as vanilla bean and salted caramel, but also unique flavors like Jamaican rum and mascarpone raspberry. The creamery also offers an Indian classic, kheer-flavored ice cream, which is a sweet porridge made from milk, rice and sugar.
