One of the nation’s most beloved ice cream franchises is rapidly expanding
Cold Stone Creamery® is the ultimate ice cream franchise, beloved by millions of customers in America and around the world. Founded in 1988, Cold Stone Creamery has grown to over 1,000 locations in the United States and in nearly 30 international markets. Now, after 32 years in business, Cold Stone Creamery continues to thrive by offering the Ultimate Ice Cream Experience®: a super-premium, artisanal ice cream that is made fresh in our stores, an endless array of mix-in combinations that allows customers to dream up their own Creations™, and exceptional customer service that is full of cheer, song and smiles.
Cold Stone Creamery is rolling out a development initiative with the aim of growing the brand by hundreds of locations in the coming years. We’re actively seeking savvy entrepreneurs with a passion for ice cream and the customer in-store experience to bring the Cold Stone Creamery franchise to new communities at home and abroad.
“There has never been a better time to invest in a Cold Stone Creamery ice cream business franchise,” says John Wuycheck, SVP of Franchise Development with Cold Stone Creamery. “Cold Stone Creamery is a brand that will continue to do incredibly well. Not only do we enjoy household name recognition in America and globally, but we believe our product is far superior to what is available on the market. The creamery part of Cold Stone Creamery is real: we make our ice cream fresh in-house, which gives our ice cream an artisanal quality, and a taste that becomes a craving that creates customer loyalty. As a franchisor, we have designed Cold Stone Creamery to be an easy-to-run, easy-to-scale business. We’ve been growing for years, and we’re not slowing down anytime soon.”
