The iconic ice creamery franchise keeps guests coming back for more with fan favorites and continuous product innovation
If you’re looking for a business opportunity that has millions of fans throughout the nation and goes above and beyond to connect with them, Cold Stone Creamery can be a wise choice. In fact, the iconic ice cream franchise rolled its wildly popular Fudge Truffle Ice Cream to help make Valentine’s Day extra special for our fans.
The Valentine’s Day ice cream creation is just one of the many innovative menu items Cold Stone releases each year. Having a product people love and then tying a new product, or a limited time offer, to a heightened public awareness – such as a national holiday – helps franchise owners maintain guest loyalty and attract new guests. This clever marketing has become a distinctive feature at Cold Stone and further helps franchise owners tie their business to any and all promotions to drive even more market penetration.
“Limited-time offerings are a huge part of almost every successful food brand, and Cold Stone Creamery is no exception,” says Jay Goldstein, Vice President of Franchise Development for Cold Stone Creamery. “We invest a lot of time and resources into creating new products and the marketing to support them so our franchise owners don’t have to. Cold Stone Creamery menus are continually evolving to meet growing demand and to drive new guest visits.”
