A Franchise Above The Rest — Bruster’s® Real Ice Cream

Since 1989, Bruster’s® has become one of the country’s favorite frozen treat chains. And for the last 20 years, we’ve been ranked by Entrepreneur Magazine as a top franchise. You’ll find over 200 independently owned Bruster’s® locations in 20 states, Guyana and South Korea -- and more are springing up every single day.


Discover The Difference. Always Handmade. Always Fresh.

The Bruster’s® difference starts with our proprietary home-style mix, delivered fresh from our dairy to each store, where small artisan batches of ice creams, yogurts, ices and sorbets are made fresh daily. Each location offers a selection of 30-40 custom, decadent flavors, out of over 160 recipes to choose from, each day.


Make A Difference In Your Life And Your Community

You’ll discover that being a Bruster’s® franchisee is more than a financial investment or a means to support your family. A Bruster’s® Real Ice Cream store is a place where people come happy and ready to make a memory! This business is a catalyst for community connections and family celebrations. You will become a mentor to your young employees, your ice cream becomes the basis for special family traditions, and your patio becomes a gathering place for friends and family celebrations. You will have the opportunity to sponsor neighborhood teams and offer fundraising opportunities for schools and churches.

If you are looking for a business that is meaningful and fulfilling, you should take a closer look at Bruster’s® Real Ice Cream!
