HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (May 7, 2015) – The owners of The Strand in Huntington Beach, an affiliate of Cypress Equities, announced today that Shakeaway will open a location on Friday, May 8, 2015, in the open-air shopping center situated at the intersection of 5th Street and Pacific Coast Highway.

Since 1999, Shakeaway has made its mark as The World’s Largest Milkshake Bar CompanyTM and original re-inventor of the milkshake. The company has “shaken up” the cold dessert marketplace with a total of 50 stores including 11 corporate and 39 franchise locations around the world.

Shakeaway has developed a world-famous menu of endless possibilities featuring more than 180 individual ingredients. Guests customize their order to create unique and refreshing milkshakes and smoothies, which showcase extra crunchy ice and fat-free frozen yogurts. The dessert eats more like ice cream with ingredients that are hand-blended to order and mixed throughout. The company’s motto is “Live forever and never have the same milkshake twice!”

Part of the brand’s success, having originated in England 16 years ago, is that Shakeaway does not sell a franchise in a box and ensures that every Shakeaway store is created with a local menu that is tailored to its state and country. In the USA stores, which are owned by Americans, every ingredient is sourced in the USA along with all the equipment and services required to open stores.

“Cypress Equities is pleased to welcome Shakeaway to The Strand,” stated Todd Minnis, managing partner and CIO of the real estate investment management division of Cypress Equities. “We are confident that Shakeaway’s offerings will be the perfect complement to the sand-and-surf lifestyle of Huntington Beach and its surrounding communities.”
