Our Process

We're here with you every step of the way.

Okay, So You’re Interested in Owning One of Our Stores? Now What?

You know, opening a franchise with us could be easier than you think. The first step is realizing that opening a Marble Slab is right for you; the second initial step is to fill out a confidential questionnaire. You will receive a link to the confidential questionnaire when you complete the inquiry form on the website. Submitting your information allows us to send you information about Marble Slab Creamery as well as contact you to discuss your interest in opening your own franchise.

You will then receive a call from one of our two Franchise Recruitment Managers for an initial conversation that will determine if your business goals match our business model. We will also evaluate your application to learn about your work history and verify that you fit our financial requirements. During your time in becoming a franchise owner, we will work to develop and close relationship with you. Our goal is to help you understand the value of Marble Slab Creamery, but also understand the many values of the franchise model.
