Franchising in San Diego, California

San Diego offers aspiring Marble Slab Creamery franchisees a beautiful place to start a business empire. The climate in San Diego has been declared one of the top ten best climates by the Farmer’s Almanac and one of the two best summer climates in the United States by The Weather Channel. With these recommendations, is it possible to find a better place to start an ice cream franchise?

Every Day is a Perfect Day for Ice Cream

San Diego has an average of 201 days that are over 70 degrees. The months of May through September are generally dry and sunny, with very little rainfall to put a damper on an ice cream day. This means that Marble Slab Creamery franchisees operating in San Diego do not have to worry about the rainy day slumps that plague many ice cream shop owners. The warm, sunny days also encourage outdoor activities that Marble Slab Creamery franchisees can work with to promote the brand and increase sales.

Beautiful Beaches

With 70 miles of world famous coastline, San Diego invites residents and tourists to enjoy many a day at the beach. A day at the beach is not complete without ice cream! Marble Slab Creamery franchisees can be sure to capture the sales from these excursions by marketing in the beach area and choosing a location in close proximity so that beach visitors can satisfy their ice cream cravings at their store instead of a competitor’s.

Complimentary Conscious Culture

San Diego subscribes to the California culture of health, well being, and environmental consciousness. This is evidenced by actions such as the plan that was announced in 2014 to alter street lights to cyber-controlled lighting in order to reduce light pollution. Marble Slab Creamery fits into this culture by taking part in many charitable activities to support the communities in which the company operates and by offering local organizations the opportunity to engage in fundraisers. Marble Slab Creamery also fits into the community-oriented culture with its focus on making products with only fresh, local dairy.

Innovation and Fun

Marble Slab Creamery is all about integrating new ideas and fun into the mix, beginning with the unique marble slab mixing technique. Innovations such as this technique and the many distinctive products that Marble Slab Creamery offers are perfect for the ever evolving San Diego market. Marble Slab Creamery also encourages customers to have fun with activities such as “celebrity scoop nights” that will be sure to entertain the San Diego crowd.

Marble Slab Creamery History

specializing in super-premium ice cream with the finest ingredients since 1983

Originally, the franchise was invented by chefs Penn and LaPage, who changed the way we enjoy frozen dessert with the ability to create your own concoction. Their “Frozen Slab” was the first, the original, and soon they began franchising this concept. In 1986, one of the first franchisees built a franchising concept that provided other franchisees a comprehensive business venture. In August of 2010, Global Franchise Group, LLC acquired Marble Slab Creamery. We now have more than 350 open stores around the world.
