House of Chimney Cakes - Handcrafted European Desserts - Franchise Information
House of Chimney Cakes is a Hungarian dessert shop based in Anaheim California, founded in 2017 by native Hungarian Szandra Szabó and Omar Lara. Szandra was already an established entrepreneur in the fashion industry before she found her passion in the Hungarian dessert of chimney cakes. In 2014, she moved to the U.S. with hopes to open her first location, knowing it would be a hit. Three years later, Szandra met Omar Lara, a highly-skilled fine dining chef with experience in reputable hotels and restaurants that include The Ritz-Carlton and Le Cirque. In just two years, Szandra and Omar’s work ethic garnered high demand for these Hungarian pastries, forcing them to expand via franchising.
