The Vietnamese franchise celebrated the new storefront opening with a student promotion that ran for the university’s orientation week.

Roll’d has been operating since 2012, experiencing rapid growth that seen the brand move from one store in Melbourne’s CBD to almost 70 stores nation-wide.

With sites in Victoria, New South Wales, ACT, South Australia, Queensland and Western Australia, the brand is gearing up for further Australian expansion with plans for international growth currently in discussion.

In 2016, Roll’d was ranked fourth on the Australian Financial Review’s Fast Starter list, recognising Australia’s highest turnover businesses less than four years old.
