Due to current pandemic conditions, Press will be enforcing masks and social distancing within its shop.

Although the new location marks the 7th shop for Press Waffle Co., it is the first shop for local owners Rosemary Compton and Mary Busby Stramel, who are members of the extended family that founded the concept in Dallas just a few years ago. "I’ve known those boys since before they can remember, and we have just loved seeing them start and grow this company and are even more excited to partner with them in opening this shop." says Mary Busby Stramel.

"Rosemary and Mary are family, and this is a family business." said Press Co-Founder Bryan Lewis. "When the opportunity to partner with them arose, it was a no brainer. Little Rock is a wonderful city, and these two ladies know it better than anyone."

The new shop is Press’ fourth franchised location and seventh overall. With recent openings in St. Louis and downtown Dallas and upcoming locations in Houston and Denver, Press Waffle Co. is well on its way to teaching America "A New Way to Waffle."™
