Colorado Springs is an exciting, outdoor community that is made up of small business owners helping one another reach their goals. The economy has been on the upswing for the last few years and is projected to keep growing. Plus, your potential customers have so many fun recreational activities at their doorsteps that they are undoubtedly working up an appetite for ice cream every day.

Amazing Business Opportunities

Colorado Springs wants small businesses. The city has a department, called the Economic Development Council, which offers resources and incentives to companies for bringing new jobs and investments to the city. Some of these incentives include corporate tax rates and training programs for employees.

In addition to the resources provided by the city, the small business community in Colorado Springs is tight knit and interested in helping each other maintain a flourishing business. Each year, Colorado Springs hosts a “startup week,” during which time small business owners get together to listen to lectures, network, and learn how to improve and grow their businesses.

On top of all the local resources, Marble Slab is dedicated to providing its franchisees with all the support they need to run their businesses. The Marble Slab infrastructure is designed for simplicity, making the job of a franchisee easier. The combination of the local small business scene and all the support Marble Slab provides its franchisees will quickly help get you on the right path.

Quickly Growing Economy

During the last few years, Colorado’s economy has been growing at a quick rate. In fact, Forbes listed Colorado Springs as number thirty-seven in the nation on the list of Best Places for Business and Careers. This high ranking is in large part due to Colorado Springs lower than average unemployment rate. The annual median income is higher than the national average as well, meaning families in Colorado Springs tend to have more extra spending money to use on things like gourmet ice cream.

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.
