The ice cream business is big and growing bigger. As the business pushes toward $80 billion in total revenue, it’s never been a better time for opening an ice cream franchise. Marble Slab Creamery is a brand owned by Global Franchise Group that has more than 1,400 stores and has been satisfying customers for generations.
Starting an ice cream franchise as part of a known brand like Marble Slab Creamery is a great way to run your own business and achieve the goal of being your own boss.
The best reason for opening an ice cream franchise under the Marble Slab Creamery banner is because of the support system you will receive as a part of the Global Franchise Group family. GFG has an experienced team of experts that can help you through the entire franchising process.
The team at GFG will help you with everything from site selection and equipment selection to training and making product. The brand’s design allows for a simplicity in training and franchise support that can help solve problems quickly and thoroughly. Marble Slab Creamery is dedicated to putting you, and your ice cream franchise, in the best possible position to succeed.
Along with the help of the team at Global Franchise Group, you will be using only the freshest ingredients at your Marble Slab Creamery franchise. The ice cream? Homemade. The waffle cones? Baked in house. Good ingredients make a good product. This, in turn, makes repeat customers and is one of the key steps in turning you into a successful ice cream franchise owner.
We strive to make the process of opening your ice cream franchise as smooth as possible. Our seven-step process is designed to take you from dreamer to business owner with ease. It starts with getting prequalified and signing a franchise disclosure document, which outlines much of the franchising process.
From there, you will meet with our team, other franchise owners, and come visit our corporate headquarters in Georgia. All that’s left is finalizing the process, making sure the money is in place, and getting the keys to your ice cream franchise.
What if you want to continue to grow past your first location? Marble Slab Creamery offers opportunities to open multiple units. That could mean opening additional Marble Slab Creamery stores or opening stores for some of our other brands like Hot Dog on a Stick, Round Table Pizza, Great American Cookies, and Pretzelmaker.
Maturing into a multi-unit owner allows you more flexibility and fluidity, as management can be shared between locations. Other benefits include more cost-effective marketing and the chance to co-brand with other GFG brands. There are opportunities across the United States and the world that would be perfect for your first, of potentially many, ice cream franchise locations.
