CREAM recently opened its sixth chain in downtown San Mateo. Owner, Fadi Shamieh, said he’s ready to wow patrons with the delicious ice cream sandwiches he and his family grew up eating. Like many others, ice cream and cookies are nostalgic for his family and were a centerpiece of any festivity. The parlor serves as an opportunity for every person to relive their childhood and enjoy a simple yet delicious and comforting treat. The Shamieh family operates their business on 4 principles: premium products, affordability, delightful service and atmosphere.
