“There has never been a better time to invest in a Cold Stone Creamery ice cream business franchise,” says Jay Goldstein, VP of Franchise Development with Cold Stone Creamery. “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 which results in 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.”
Cold Stone Creamery delivers the Ultimate Ice Cream Experience® through a community of franchisees who are passionate about ice cream. With nearly 1,000 locations globally, our smooth and creamy ice cream is handcrafted fresh daily in store, and is then customized by combining a variety of mix-ins on a frozen granite stone. Cold Stone Creamery is owned by parent company Kahala Brands™, one of the fastest growing franchising companies in the world with a portfolio of nearly 29 fast-casual and quick-service restaurant brands with approximately 3,000 locations in 35 countries.
