Co-founded by cousins Jason McGowan and Sawyer Hemsley in Utah in 2017, Crumbl has experienced an explosion of growth across the country over the last several years.

Currently, there are 1,032 Crumbl locations in operation in the United States. Of those locations, at least 75 are in Florida, including a recently opened Crumbl in Ocala.

In addition to the new location in Ocala, Crumbl also has locations in Lake and Alachua Counties as well.

The new Crumbl in The Villages will feature the same “rotating menu” that has made the brand popular among foodies. Each week, the shop will feature four new flavors that are inspired by “cakes, candies, pies, and desserts of all kinds,” according to the company’s website.

Since it was developed, Trailwinds Village has seen a steady influx of national brands join its ranks, including Lowes, Publix, Jersey Mike’s, First Watch, Starbucks, Aldi, ABC Liquors, Circle K, Wendy’s, Verizon, Taco Bell, and Burger King.
