Restaurant Business Online ranks Cold Stone Creamery a top chain restaurant
Technomic has released its annual Top 500 Chain Restaurant Report and has included Cold Stone Creamery™ in the Quick Service segment, and Frozen Desserts menu category.
The list, reported on by Restaurant Business Online, first began in 1974, according to Technomic, which began its Top 100 Report then. That is now the Top 500 report and provides a wealth of information for “operators and suppliers to develop sales and marketing strategies, identify growth opportunities, and monitor segment and menu category performance,” it says.
While many might not think of a Cold Stone Creamery franchise as a top chain restaurant, this ranking (alongside the others that the brand receives) shows how well the business stacks up across the entire quick-service sector, as well as within the ice cream/frozen dessert categories.
Huge brand recognition, world-class support
Now match that kind of recognition, and more than 30 years of customer and franchise owner satisfaction, and it’s easy to see why Cold Stone Creamery makes a top chain restaurant list alongside its many other accolades. Then marry that high brand profile with the outstanding wrap around support offered by franchisor Kahala Brands™ and it’s a combo that’s hard to beat, says Jay Goldstein, vice president of franchise development.
“Kahala has decades of experience in operating franchise brands of all kinds,” Goldstein says. “That means creating the right back-office software for inventory and staff scheduling, experienced real estate professionals for site selection, an R&D department and test kitchens that are second to none, marketing and outreach programs designed for a specific market, and so much more. Cold Stone Creamery continues to build on decades of growth by bringing all that together and doing it in a business platform that even the most inexperienced entrepreneur can master and enjoy.”
