The Baked Bear Custom Ice Cream Shop Opens At The Sawgrass Mills Mall in Sunrise, Florida

Hello Foodie Friends,

The Baked Bear @thebakedbear, a San Diego, California-based ice cream shop known for its inventive, monstrous ice cream sandwiches and homemade original recipes opened its first-ever Florida location at the Sawgrass Mills Mall in Sunrise, FL.


The Baked Bear showcases hand-churned ice cream scoops and customizable ice cream sandwiches made with the choice of fresh-baked cookies and brownies. Offering a mix-and-match style for guests to discover their favorite dessert combination, the super-premium craft ice cream collection will showcase original flavors like Blackberry Crumble, Toasted S’mores and Lavender Cheesecake, to name a few. Guests have the option of having their ice cream sandwiches rolled through colorful toppings ranging from Fruity Pebbles to Oreo Crumble and sprinkles, resulting in the brand’s Instagram-worthy reputation. And customers can also order their ice cream sandwiches ‘hot pressed’. 

The Baked Bear concept was started by childhood friends, Rob Robbins and Shane Stanger, who left their careers to follow their true passion: serving up inventive sweets in their hometown of San Diego, California. The Baked Bear quickly became a phenomenon, known for high-quality desserts and recognized by Forbes and Business Insider. The San Diego-favorite has now grown to 26 current locations in nine states. The company has plans to continue to expand throughout Florida.

“We have had our eye on Florida for some time now, but finding the right local person to bring The Baked Bear here was crucial,” said Stanger, Baked Bear Co-Founder. “We are confident that Angela will provide a fantastic experience inside a popular shopping destination where the community can fall in love with our ice cream and desserts.”

“We are thrilled to introduce The Baked Bear and its award-winning concept to the South Florida community,” says Angela German, owner of the Sunrise location. “Because it’s always summer here and always a perfect time for ice cream, this location will make the ideal hotspot to cool down with delicious homemade treats.”

The Baked Bear Sunrise will also stay true to the brand’s mission to “spread joy and create memories, bringing a smile to every customer’s face, one ice cream sandwich at a time” by offering rotating, seasonal flavors and a freshly baked Cookie of the Month.


The 806 square ft. Sunrise store is located in The Oasis at Sawgrass Mills Mall – 2604 Sawgrass Mills Circle, #1125, Sunrise FL, 33323.
