Nation’s Restaurant News ranks Cold Stone Creamery as a Top 200 Brand for 2021
After one of the most challenging years for the food industry, Nation’s Restaurant News researched hundreds of brands to determine their annual “Top 200 Restaurant Chains in America,” for 2021. And we’re proud to announce that Cold Stone Creamery, a best ice cream franchise, made the cut!
“Coronavirus has rewritten all the rules, and we are only at the beginning stages of understanding its far-reaching impact on the country’s social and economic health,” NRN reports on their methodology for the list, “The features in this year’s report focused largely on what the country’s largest restaurant chains are doing right now and what they plan for the future. But it’s also important to know how they were doing as they entered this crisis.”
Cold Stone Creamery not only adapted to the crisis, but also, our brand experienced strong traffic, expansion, and continued to deliver the ten-minute vacation that our customers needed more than ever.
Most importantly, Cold Stone Creamery rolled out a mobile ordering platform of our entire menu to help make ordering from us easier than ever before. This new platform, alongside third-party mobile delivery, can help drive traffic and keep customers safe at a time of social distancing.
“We overcame a lot in 2020, and we’re a far stronger brand as a result,” says Jay Goldstein, VP of Development with Cold Stone Creamery. “Millions of people couldn’t go on vacation this year, but they could go to Cold Stone Creamery – and they did, over and over again. We’re very fortunate to be a brand that millions of people love and to have such positive franchise owners. Now, as we look to 2021, I can’t wait to welcome new owners to our family in the year ahead.”
