Dessert shop coming to Richardson is all about cobblers and pudding
A new dessert shop is coming to Richardson with a decadently delicious focus: Called The Peach Cobbler Factory, it'll specialize in homey desserts, particularly cobbler and banana pudding.
The shop is part of a chain based in North Carolina and will open in a former Tiff's Treats at 720 E. Campbell Rd.
The concept started out as a food truck in Nashville in 2013, before growing to a small chain that began franchising in 2022. The first location in Texas opened in Arlington in February; Richardson is the second, and is from Tanner Spring, a 28-year-old entrepreneur who is opening his first restaurant.
“It's going to be a fun, warm, inviting experience, a new take on those Southern classics," Spring says. "You can find frozen yogurt and cookies on every corner, but there's nobody in the market other than fine dining who really does cobblers or puddings."
Cobber is the centerpiece of the menu, served warm with ice cream, in 12 flavors including peach, strawberry peach, blackberry peach, and cinnamon praline peach. Non-peach flavors include cherry, caramel-apple, honey-apple, apple-walnut-raisin, and sweet potato-pecan.
They also offer 12 varieties of banana pudding with additions like Nutella, Oreo cookies, and Butterfingers. Red velvet banana pudding features red velvet cake with cream cheese icing layered into the banana pudding. Similarly, cheesecake banana pudding layers in New York-style cheesecake with graham-cracker crust. Prices average about $9.
For those who can't decide, they offer dessert flights that let you mix-and-match four flavors. You can choose either from the cobbler category, banana pudding, or both. (They'll have dining-in with about 12-15 seats plus more seating on a small outdoor patio.)
There are oversized snickerdoodle cookies, as big as pizza, topped with cobbler; and oversized brownies in flavors such as salted caramel and peanut butter-and-jelly. Other decadent desserts include cinnamon rolls, cobbler-stuffed cinnamon rolls, churros, and milkshakes.
Spring hopes to open shop Richardson around Thanksgiving, in time for holiday gatherings. "It’d just be a new twist on everybody's holiday season," he says.
"I think it's a genius idea," he says. "We live in the land of smoked meats and barbecues and cookouts and tailgating, and what better than some cobbler and pudding and cookies and cinnamon rolls."
