It’s been a busy week for Jay Jerrier. In the past five days alone, he’s celebrated selling nearly half a million pizzas in five years at Cane Rosso and shuttered Zoli’s NY Style Pizza. He’s also working on getting outposts of Cane Rosso open in Austin and Houston, but that apparently wasn’t enough to keep Jerrier busy. Now, he’s got plans to bring a completely new kind of business venture to the city where it all began.
Announced today, Jerrier will bring Austin’s Cow Tipping Creamery to a mint location in East Dallas. Cow Tipping Creamery will move into the space formerly occupied by Cultivar Coffee at Good 2 Go Taco. Cultivar Coffee recently departed for a new spot at Goodfriend Package, making room for one of Austin’s most exciting ice cream offerings.
The move may indicate that Jerrier has some Shark Tank-style talent. Cane Rosso acquired Cow Tipping Creamery last year, which started as a food truck on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. “They had an amazing product and incredible passion, but needed help to take their business to the next level,” said Jerrier. “We think Dallas is going to live this ice cream and their unique soft serve flavors, scratch made toppings, shakes, cones, and their glorious, glorious stackers.”
For the uninitiated, "stackers" are Cow Tipping’s mind-blowing soft-serve sundaes layered with plenty of toppings. No timeline has yet been announced for when you can get your hands on one of those stackers, but Jerrier hopes that the outpost will be open “very soon.”
