When Founder Bryan Lewis was traveling across Europe with his fiancé in the summer of 2013, they encountered the Liége waffle for the first time. After eating them all summer long, the couple wanted to share these heavenly treats with everyone at their wedding. Upon returning to Dallas, they could not find them anywhere, nor could their caterer re-create the magic they had experienced abroad.
So Bryan set out to do it on his own. With no culinary background, he tinkered in the kitchen for over a year before he had perfected the recipe. With a desire to share his waffles with everyone he knew, Press Waffle Co. was born. When Bryan’s brother, Caleb, moved home from college, they began dreaming and planning their business before finally founding Press Waffle Co. as a food truck in 2016.
Press Waffle Co. opened its first permanent storefront in late 2017. After an exciting and successful appearance on ABC’s hit show Shark Tank, the brothers haven’t slowed down, recently adding a shop at The Exchange to their growing portfolio. With multiple stores set to open in the next few months, Press Waffle Co. is on a mission to teach America “A New Way To Waffle!”
