Cold Stone Creamery franchise enjoys steady growth and expansion
As Cold Stone Creamery® franchise celebrates its 30th year in business, the brand continues to expand in new markets domestically and internationally. By year’s end, we anticipate adding 30 new locations to our franchise network. Our “Thirty in the 30th” is just the beginning of more growth to come.
“As we approach the end of our anniversary year, we’re excited to report such robust growth of our franchise network,” says John Wuycheck, senior vice president of franchise development. “At Cold Stone Creamery our goal is to deliver super-premium ice cream day in and day out, and we know that can only be achieved by making franchisee support a top priority. That support is one of the most attractive aspects of our franchise offering. With our corporate structure we are able to achieve this and at the same time steadily grow the overall brand each year.”
Cold Stone’s vertical in-house structure streamlines the process of running a franchise. All franchisor services — development, real estate, design and construction, training, operations, purchasing and supply chain, research and development, marketing and public relations — are offered to each franchisee, which helps result in faster and continued growth.
In 1988, Cold Stone Creamery opened its first location in Tempe, Arizona. Today, with more than 1,000 stores in the United States and nearly 30 in international markets, we still have optimal territory available for new franchise expansion and development. This year, we’ve enjoyed rapid growth in Texas and throughout the Southeast. Even though we are targeting major metropolitan and small-town markets in Florida, Illinois, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Texas, we have numerous territories available from coast to coast.
