Salt & Straw was founded eight years ago, initially as a pushcart in Portland, Oregon, according to the company. It has since expanded to 20 West Coast locations and recently announced that it will open its first two East Coast shops in Miami next year.
To celebrate the new partnership, Salt & Straw is releasing a “Dwanta Claus” selection of holiday flavors, Garcia and Johnson said in a press release.

Ice cream is a new field for Johnson, whose endorsements have traditionally been in some way fitness-related, such as his successful sneaker with Under Armour that quickly sold out last year. But the wrestler-turned-movie-star also has a new tequila brand set to launch next year, and his impressive “cheat day” photos showing his once-a-week massive meals are popular on Instagram.
“Salt & Straw’s proven commitment to connecting with local communities through their storytelling and creativity make this strategic investment a natural fit,” Garcia said in a press release. “We’re thrilled to provide our expertise to build upon their forward-thinking and disruptive approach that has delighted consumers and inspired meaningful brand experiences.”
