Why Invest in an Ice Cream Shop Franchise

Almost half of Americans eat dessert at least once a week, making an ice cream franchise a smart investment. Marble Slab Creamery has a long history of giving our customers what they want, and we don’t stop there; we are dedicated to serving our franchisees and our customers alike which is why we have adapted our opportunity to fit in a wide variety of locations and venues.


The Pioneers of the Frozen Slab Technique

What makes Marble Slab stand out in the ice cream franchise market? It’s simple: We pioneered the frozen slab technique in 1983, and we have continued making fresh, delicious ice cream ever since. We use our experience to support our dessert franchisees in everything from initial training to finding a location to marketing.

On top of that, we take pride in using locally sourced ingredients in all of our ice cream. Our commitment is to keep ice cream fresh for our customers.

Co-branding Marble Slab Creamery with Great American Cookies

There are some things that are just meant to go together. Peanut butter and jelly. Lock and key. Pen and paper. Sand and surf. But there is no match quite like ice cream and cookies. These two sweet treats are a perfect pairing that customers and ice cream franchise business owners love.

As members of Global Franchise Group (GFG), we are able to partner with our sister brand, Great American Cookies, to create co-branded dessert stores. Combine our delicious ice cream with Great American Cookies' fresh baked cookies, and you are sure to be a hit with your customers. Co-branded stores place both brands in a single location, allowing you to make the most of your store franchise investment and provide your customers with the ice cream and cookies they crave.
