Why add Cold Stone Creamery to Your Franchise Portfolio
Cold Stone Creamery can make a great multi-unit franchise to add to your franchise portfolio, firstly because Americans love their ice cream. According to the International Dairy Association, Americans eat roughly 20 pounds of ice cream every year, which means a Cold Stone Creamery franchise owner is investing in a brand with built-in consumer appeal. Demand for ice cream is high, and opening multiple locations of the Cold Stone Creamery franchise will meet both consumer demands and offer a high potential for profit to the franchisee.
Thanks to an experienced and passionate support team and backing from Kahala Brands™, investing in a Cold Stone Creamery is accessible not just to experienced franchisees, but also to first-time business owners. And because the franchise’s business model offers customers endless ways to customize their ice cream orders, Cold Stone franchise owners are able to quickly expand their customer base and grow profits.
