Franchise Chatter ranks Cold Stone Creamery® #5 on list of best frozen dessert franchises in 2021
Franchise Chatter recently published “The 25 Best Ice Cream, Frozen Yogurt and Other Frozen Dessert Franchises of 2021,” and we’re proud to report that Cold Stone Creamery ice cream franchises earned the No. 5 spot.
The list is dedicated to informing entrepreneurs of worthy franchise opportunities in the frozen dessert segment, and Cold Stone Creamery’s high ranking is a reflection of our brand strength, business model, and continued innovation.
The publication praises Cold Stone Creamery’s continued commitment to introduce new products that generate excitement and keep our customers coming back.
“Cold Stone Creamery continues to create new flavors to tempt customers, including its recent partnership with Reese’s for a peanut butter ice cream cup and a new Honey Cornbread & Blackberry Jam flavor featuring pieces of cornbread,” Franchise Chatter reports. “It also rolled out a pair of Super Mario-themed ice cream treats. One is Mario & Luigi’s Masterpiece (a made-to-order dish of ice cream with various add-ins) and the other is the Rainbow Sprinkle Road ice cream cake.”
While 2020 was a year beset by challenges, the industry is rebounding quickly. Franchise Chatter reports that “The frozen dessert market is expected to return to significant growth in 2021, and to see this continue over the next seven years.”
Cold Stone Creamery is growing right alongside the industry. In fact, 2020 was a successful year in terms of franchise expansion, and many of our franchise owners continue to stay busy thanks to our new online ordering platform that launched a few months before the pandemic hit.
“We’re proud to be ranked so high on Franchise Chatter’s list of the top brands in the frozen category,” says Jay Goldstein, VP of Development for Cold Stone Creamery. “This is a really exciting time to be a part of our brand. We’re continuing to grow, and as more and more entrepreneurs discover the strength of our business model, our level of support, and our continued ability to connect with our customers, we expect our strong growth to continue going forward.”
