The ultimate ice cream franchise is rapidly growing in our nation’s capital
Cold Stone Creamery begins the New Year on a high note, with plans to open the eighth franchise location in Washington, D.C.’s affluent Cleveland Park neighborhood.
Our brand’s expanding footprint in Washington D.C. is a reflection of the tremendous demand for our ice cream in the U.S. and around the world. To capitalize on this demand, Cold Stone® plans to add hundreds of locations in the coming years. Our brand’s dominant position as a beloved brand in the booming ice cream segment is evident in our domestic and global footprint. Cold Stone has nearly 1,500 stores open or in development in 28 countries, making us a wise investment for entrepreneurs who want to join an established brand with a bright future.
“For investors looking to get into the frozen dessert industry, ice cream is on the rise,” says John Wuycheck, SVP of Franchise Development with Cold Stone Creamery. “There has never been a better time to invest in a Cold Stone Creamery franchise. Cold Stone Creamery is an easy-to-run, easy-to-scale business. We’ve been growing for years, and we’re not slowing down anytime soon.”
The Cold Stone Creamery franchise is expanding rapidly due to our brand equity, exceptional made in store ice cream, memorable customer experiences and easy-to-run business model for franchisees. Cold Stone Creamery has captivated the sweet tooth of customers around the globe, and it continues to be a bright brand in the $8 billion ice cream industry, according to IBIS World. As one of the pioneers of customizable ice cream creations, Cold Stone Creamery allows customers to dream up their own ice cream treats, or choose from the popular Signature Creations™. Better still, our brand’s customer service is not only exciting, with songs, cheers, and dances; it creates memories that will last a lifetime.
“There’s still nothing like Cold Stone Creamery on the market, and not only does this make for a profitable business model, but it also has given me the chance to give back to my community,” says Terry Sedmak, owner of two Cold Stone Creamery franchise locations in Michigan. “The support from the Cold Stone Creamery executives continues to be outstanding, and for new entrepreneurs who are looking for a business that is easy to open and easy to scale, I couldn’t recommend Cold Stone Creamery highly enough. Be prepared for hard work, but the hard work is worth it!”
