Tastee Freeze Franchise Information:

An Ice Cream Franchise...And Much More

There's never been a cooler time to join Tastee Freez. We've just launched our all-new modern "malt shop" concept, adding a traditional ice cream counter with old fashioned ice cream stools and booth seating for over 38 guests. And now, franchise fees are cut in half, royalties reduced!

After serving the world's best desserts for the past 60 years, Tastee Freez now competes for traffic in all dayparts. High quality morning fare like pancakes and breakfast sandwiches. 100% natural beef steak burgers topped with flavors like guacamole, mushrooms and blue cheese. A big quarter-pound Hot Dog, sliced and grilled to perfection. Plus continued introduction of new items like our Philly Cheese Steak and BBQ beef sandwich, both made with real sirloin steak.

New Tastee Freez architectural designs in development provide strong, contemporary exterior branding and great traffic-building street visibility.

Our kitchens now use the most modern equipment and cooking techniques, allowing us to reduce the building size to less than 1,500 square feet and still provide exceptional food quality and speed of service.

So, we invite you to partner with us in building on an American tradition that began in 1950 with the opening of the first Tastee Freez location, introducing our own soft serve sundaes and cones to an eager public. Today's Tastee Freez is being managed with a strong set of core values and a clearly defined mission: to provide franchisees with business opportunities and systems designed to build brand loyalty, sales and
That is our commitment, and we're looking for dedicated entrepreneurs to join us.
