Owning one of our franchises comes with many perks and benefits from our initial and ongoing support to being part of a brand that puts a smile on customers’ faces. Though, how do you know if this investment is right for you? There are many questions to consider before taking that next step and opening up a franchise of your own.
Here are a few questions you might ask if you’re considering opening a franchise.
Like any investment, the cost to open one of our franchises can vary depending on the location, area, and size of the store. The total investment is approximately $293,085 to $381,135, with a typical store ranging from 650 to 1,400 square feet.
With hardwork and dedication, your business can run smoothly and efficiently. We’ve ironed out many the kinks of starting your own business. That’s the benefit of franchising in a nutshell. We’ve already created a product, the branding, and system in which to execute, all we’re missing is the person with the right traits and liqudity to execute it.
A good franchisee flourishes in their franchise when they are committed, confident, ambitious, and have a positive attitude. We look for these traits in people who want to start a franchise with us, and when they possess these qualities, we know that they have the potential to do well with our business model. These traits can also have an impact on your employees as well. When your employees see that you’re passionate about your business, that passion can rub off on them too. Employees look for leadership, and your store will directly reflect your ability to lead. With your employees, always inspect what you expect.
Another key ingredient in great franchise owners is selecting those franchisees who can follow a system. There’s no need to reinvent the wheel when we’ve already done it for you. Your focus should be on generating more business by engaging with customers and employees and forming relationships with the community around you. Your goal is to become THE ice cream franchise in your community, and you’ll do that by touching on all of the things mentioned above. No success comes without hard work, but there are so many benefits to owning a Marble Slab Creamery franchise discussed below.
There are many benefits associated with investing in our franchise. On top of being guided by us every step of the way, you get to be part of a community that not only has a great product but one that attracts customers from all over the area. Ice cream is a popular treat, and when you have some of the best ice cream in town, customers will want to line up at your door to get a little taste. The best part is that ice cream is a family event, and you’ll get to see families grow throughout the years. Forming bonds with families will not only bring about repeated business, but it will bring more fulfillment to yourself along with your community. Building relationships will last a lifetime, and that’s what this business is all about.
This is the most common question when looking at investing in our franchise, and it’s one of the most important! Each franchisee might have a different range of profits due to various locations and how much work the franchise owner has put into the business. We can’t disclose the exact amount due to FTC laws, but there is an excellent option we do provide to help show you these numbers. Every franchise is required to have a Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) to do business. Within that document, we list the Average Unit Volume (AUV) of our stores. We also list the percentages we see of Cost of Goods Sold, Labor and Rent. Whereas we aren’t allowed to make earnings claims, we do provide the contact information of the owners in our system so that you may contact them directly for questions about the business, revenue, and tips on how to run your businesses. They can answer questions that we aren’t allowed to answer legally. Use them to your advantage!
We know all the ins and outs of ice cream franchising so we will assist you in finding a location for your store. You won’t have to go about finding a place for your franchise alone.
