Franchising in Denver, Colorado

While Denver may be known as a chilly city that many visit during the snowy winters, the city offers much more through all of the seasons. Denver’s festivals and picturesque lakes attract visitors from around the globe and throughout the local area. For an aspiring Marble Slab Creamery franchisee that wishes to open an ice cream shop, this frontier town may just be the right place to forge ahead with dreams.

Seasonal Beauty in Denver

Every single season is stunning in Denver. The fall offers foliage like no other place as the Colorado Rockies change their colors. Summer and fall both yield copious harvests from farms in the area, allowing visitors and locals to select from apples, strawberries, pumpkins, and many other fresh fruits and vegetables. Festivals also focus on the delightful array of fresh produce. In the spring, Denver becomes a haven for flowers, art, and balloons with colorful and lively celebrations everywhere. Each season attracts tourists to the area and brings locals out of their homes and into town.

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.
