Former Dallas Cowboys, wife to open Nestle Toll House Cafes in Arlington, Mansfield

Toll House

Former Dallas Cowboys defensive back Charlie Williams and his wife, Sharonda Williams, are opening their first Nestle Toll House Café by Chip franchised location near the University of Texas at Arlington.

Set to open in the College Park Center on Tuesday, Nov. 5, the café will include classic cookies, Button Brownies, Little Bits of Trouble, Double Trouble, a Cup of Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies, muffins and cupcakes – along with fountain beverages and ice cream sandwiches.

“My wife served 25 years in the corporate world, but she recently decided it was time to get out of that space, so we looked into franchising,” said Franchisee Charlie Williams. “Sharonda stopped in a Nestlé® Toll House® Café by Chip® location and fell in love with the cookies. We knew immediately that we wanted to own a location. We’re really excited to be café owners and we are looking forward to giving fans premium treats while they enjoy a game!”

This is the Williams’ first Nestlé® Toll House Café by Chip location, and the duo will open their second down the road at the Shops at Broad in Mansfield in late November.

The premium dessert destination concept is built around one of the world’s most recognized food brands – Nestlé. For more information about Nestlé Toll House Café by Chip, visit
