Ice Cream & Frozen Treat Franchises

While the ancient Greeks ate snow mixed with honey as far back as the fifth century B.C., what we think of as ice cream today didn’t became available to ordinary citizens in Europe until around the mid 18th century. The treat soon caught on in England during the 19th century, and the rest they say is history. Ice cream holds a special spot in many people’s hearts, with older Americans harboring nostalgia for old style ice cream shops. Today, ice cream, in its many forms, is beloved by many, making it a fun way to explore your entrepreneurial dreams in your community.

Types of Frozen Treat Franchises Available

Who doesn’t love ice cream? What was once considered a summertime treat has come into its own, with flavors that reflect the season to lower calorie options such as frozen yogurt or shaved ice. Then there is the decadent end of the options, with richer and creamier gelato, not to mention the multitude of toppings that can elevate a simple cone into a colossal treat. The options for enticing consumers in your market are only limited by your imagination.

Why Buy an Ice Cream or Frozen Yogurt Business

Why should you consider an ice cream franchise? In a word—fun. The business offers a way to bring people together, celebrate special moments or, simply, enjoy a sweet treat. Either way, you will be connecting to your community in a positive way, becoming part of their good times. What’s more, ice cream is a perennial food favorite, which can be adapted to any time of the year by offering flavors to suit the season or occasion.
