The freakshake queens Anna and Gina Petridis are going international.

They're opening the first of two international locations in Malaysia, with a Kuala Lumpur store currently in the final stages of development and set to open later in June.

The Malaysian Patissez will serve up freakshakes, burgers and coffee in the trendy suburb of Bangsar. It's currently recruiting staff.

It's the Petridis' first store outside Australia, and comes just about a year after the family launched themselves into internet stardom with their Instagram worthy freakshakes, giant creations piled with slabs of cake, brownies, pretzels and topped with whipped cream.

The phenomenon has caused huge queues outside their cafe in Manuka.

Since then they've been courted by investors from across the globe keen to capitalise on the freakshake sensation. But they've expanded within Canberra first - opening a bigger Patissez cafe on Marcus Clarke Street in Civic.

A Singapore store is also in the works.
