A pair of new ice cream parlours are to open close to each other: Charlie’s Waffles and Co on West Port and Crolla’s on Perth Road.
Charlie’s Waffles, named in honour of Roald Dahl novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, is the venture of siblings Kassam Kassam, 22, and Mariam Kassam, 23.
It is Kassam’s second business, having already set up online retailer KassTech, but it is a first for Mariam.
She said: “I worked in a bank before but I just wanted to try something new. It’s something a bit different.
“We thought it would be a nice challenge.”
Crolla’s, which is hoping to open on Perth Road in early February, has more than 60 variations in its other stores thanks to their ‘cold-stone creation’, which allows customers to blend flavours of their choosing.
The firm, which has outlets in Aberdeen, Glasgow, Wishaw and Preston, has been looking for a location in Dundee since early 2017.
