Waffle Brothers

The Waffle Brothers franchise is food concept that sells waffles. In Spring 2006, the brand started to research and develop a Liege Waffle recipe. They come up with the "one" after taking many street waffle recipes from Belgium, importing authentic “sugar nibs,” and taste testing. The Waffle Brothers currently has four waffles to choose from: original, traditional, gluten-free original, and cranapple muffin. In the Summer of 2007, the brand brought its original waffle to the streets of Denver, Colo. The leadership team attended affairs, festivals, and farmers markets to present their new waffle to Denver! The brand expanded to two locations in Denver.
