Global parent company’s leadership and expertise provide tremendous support for Cold Stone Creamery ice cream franchise owners
The global enterprise and parent company of Cold Stone Creamery ice cream franchise is referred to by QSR magazine as, “one of the restaurant industry’s foremost power players,” identifying their mission statement as, “At Kahala Brands™, it’s 28 brands, one unified mission.”
Kahala oversees more than 2,800 restaurant locations today, expanding Cold Stone Creamery franchises across the globe. Since 1981 the franchising experts at Kahala have been building a business that focuses on the growth of franchise-owned businesses. For more than 32 years, Cold Stone Creamery has been working to continually improve its business model to enhance profit potential in multiple surging markets.
The quick-service enterprise and branding moguls believe that strength in numbers translates to strength in business.
Kahala’s presence can be immensely beneficial to Cold Stone Creamery ice cream franchise owners. Kahala and Cold Stone both share consistency and messaging on a vast market scale and there’s no mistaking the brand awareness and reach.
Cold Stone franchisees have access to in-house marketing and public relations teams, which significantly reduces expenses and expands the loyal customer base through brand recognition. By maintaining the same global branding strategy of visibility and consistent messaging, Cold Stone, with the help of Kahala brands, spread the costs of advertising throughout the global market.
“We’re constantly sharing best practices that others can implement – constantly looking at ways we can help our franchisees improve their service levels, hospitality in the restaurants, operations, or anything the guest experiences, because that will have an impact on our franchisees and the brands themselves,” says John Wuycheck, senior vice president of development. “There are beloved recipes we’ve learned work well, and we know we can assist people in growing their business.”
Our collaborative, ongoing support network institutes advantages for entrepreneurs seeking lucrative franchise opportunities
According to the Small Business Administration (SBA), 50 percent of new businesses fail during the first five years. The SBA advises, “The administrative and marketing support offered by a franchise network with time tested back-office processes can increase the longevity of your business, and allow you to truly serve as a local job generator and economic booster.”
Kahala headquarters has fashioned its top priority to solidifying relationships with franchise partners. They’ve established that franchisees are in the business for themselves, but not by themselves.
With nearly 1,000 locations, Cold Stone Franchises has designed a model that can be easy to run and easy to scale.
