Pop n Roll Desserts opened their new dessert dine-in experience on West Gate at 4pm on Saturday, March 5, and owners Ali Rashid and Mohsin Hussain spoke to your Chad about their vision for their new venture.
Ali Rashid is a motivational athlete who goes by the name @lionarofficial on social media and has a huge following, as does food blogger Mohsin Hussain who goes by @beardedmo, and the pair are hoping to bring their previous success from their Burton-on-Trent store to Mansfield.
The new restaurant is opening in two phases, with their main dine in restaurant opening first, before opening upstairs which they hope to complete in the coming weeks, with both floors offering the perfect location for birthday parties and private hire.

Mr Rashid explains: “We are raring to go, we wanted to get downstairs opened, and get our name out there, and we will then move onto opening up phase two which will really bring something new to Mansfield.
"We are really confident in our desserts – we’re a family of bakers with seventeen years experience, so we focused on making high-quality desserts which people will tell their friends about – we don’t just sell the same as everyone else.”
The family of bakers have sold online for many years before branching out to physical stores, and offer a huge menu of baked desserts, milkshakes, bubble tea and rolling ice cream, and Mr Rashid says he wants the people of Mansfield to get involved with shaping the future of the diner.
"We are going to play it by ear over the coming weeks, and see how our customers respond,” he continued.
"If they want us to open later, we will, if they want a dessert we don’t stock, then we will grow our menu with our customer base.
"We are really excited to be here.”
