The top three winners will be announced on The Dolly Llama’s social media account with first place winning a $100 Dolly Llama gift card and second and third place taking home $50 and $25 gift cards, respectively.
Guests can enter via social media by uploading a creative photo or video at a Dolly Llama store, posting to their Instagram story or feed, include hashtag #thedollyllamacontest, tag and follow @thedollyllama_us and geotag the location that they visited.
“We wanted to kick off the new year with an engaging and interactive contest with our guests, especially as we enter new markets across the country,” said co-founder Eric Shomof. “With endless possibilities for building desserts and so much aesthetic inspiration in our stores, we’re excited to see the fun and creative photos and videos our guests post for International Creativity Month. Guests often post about our insta-worthy, over-the-top desserts on social media, so for International Creativity Month we want to award and encourage the creativity that we see everyday! And who knows? Maybe our guests’ entries will inspire us to add a brand new menu item!”
The brand prides itself on offering authentic European flavors and techniques, such as Belgian waffles using traditional methods, and the Hong Kong Bubble Waffle prepared with a special batter that produces a unique crispy and custard-like texture. The two unique waffle styles — OG Liege Waffle, Bubble Waffle — are the base of the interactive menu of ‘Top Picks’ waffle and ice cream desserts, ice cream waffle sandwiches, and a ‘Build Your Own’ menu, where customers are encouraged to get creative with unlimited toppings resulting in endless flavor possibilities and combinations.
The Dolly Llama was designed to be a modern dessert shop where all guests can enjoy hand-crafted waffles and ice cream in a cool, hip and fun environment. The concept’s success can be, in part, attributed to its innovative and artisanal menu, but also the unique experience of visiting The Dolly Llama locations is what makes the shops a beloved destination for locals and tourists alike. The currently operating six locations share an unparalleled aesthetic flair and insta-worthy design featuring eye-catching signage, our iconic llama and “wanted” llama prints along the walls.
The Dolly Llama currently operates three locations in greater Los Angeles, one location in Dallas, one location in Ponte Vedra Beach and one location in Las Vegas. A location in Orlando will open on January 7th. To stay up to date with The Dolly Llama news and announcements follow the brand on Instagram @thedollyllama_us and Facebook @TheDollyLlamaUS.
The Dolly Llama was founded by real estate leader, Eric Shomof and Samuel Baroux, an acclaimed European entrepreneur and restaurateur who wanted to bring his passion for food and dessert to the states. The name was inspired by a real llama Baroux encountered on a farm in the South of France, and pays homage to his home country. Since its inception in 2017, The Dolly Llama has dominated LA’s waffle scene with its own unique take on the Bubble Waffle, Hong Kong’s #1 street food in addition to Dolly Llama Shakes, and OG Waffles, and aims to prove that all waffles don’t need syrup. The Dolly Llama currently operates locations in Downtown Los Angeles (611 S. Spring St), Koreatown (273 S. Western Ave), Sherman Oaks (14545 Ventura Blvd), Dallas (2817 Howell Street, Suite 210), Ponte Vedra Beach, FL (830 A1A North #16) and Las Vegas, NV (4632 S Maryland Pkwy). 45 new locations are signed and in the works across the country, check out https://www.thedollyllamala.com to find a location coming soon near you.
