A new California-based franchise, called Zero Degrees, is coming soon to Lafayette’s Ambassador Town Center at 114 Meadow Farm Road Suite 110, formerly Bob’s Beans Coffee. According to their website, this will be the second location with the first being in Baton Rouge.
Founded in Orange County, CA in 2013, Zero Degrees is known as the “Home of the Mangonadas™️” — a mango slush with real fruit chunks, topped with chamoy and Tajin seasoning giving it a sweet, salty, spicy kick, according to their website.
The Asian-Hispanic restaurant is more of a snack destination serving signature Mangonadas as well as other fancy slushes, milk tea, bubble tea, “CAMO” drinks, and coffee drinks. However, their food selection is pretty interesting and keeps with the Asian-Hispanic influence; items like garlic noodles, carne asada fries, Flamin’ Hot Cheetos cheese fries, and popcorn chicken bites all with a selection of sauces. You can also find Elotes plates, which is typically Mexican street corn. Go check them out for yourselves on their menu.
Construction on the new Zero Degrees Lafayette just started and should be completed and ready to open in about 2-3 (or less). Some of these franchises pop up stupid fast.
