Born and raised in Norway, waffles were a staple food in Stine Aasland’s childhood. At age 21, she dreamed of transforming waffles into a hand-held experience. She began selling waffles out of her convenience store, quickly gaining popularity and becoming the largest waffle company in Norway. After being given the title of “Waffle Queen,” Stine left her company and moved to the United States in hopes of redefining how Americans experience waffles.
Nordic Waffles launched in Minneapolis in 2016. It had a stand at the 2018 Minnesota State Fair and sold over 42,000 waffles in 12 days, starting a “Wafflelution” amongst the fairgoers. From there, Nordic Waffles was able to expand into ten states and opened a retail location at Potluck Food Hall. When the COVID-19 pandemic closed the shop’s doors, it shifted gears and launched a frozen food line. With Nordic Waffles now sold in more than 500 stores across the Midwest, Stine and her Minnesota-based team know that now more than ever, Americans need this Wafflelution. Because they believe you deserve a little Nordic love in every bite.
