Open a Franchise in Wichita, Kansas

Do you love ice cream? Are you looking to take the leap to become your own boss? Do you live in the Wichita, Kansas area? If you answered yes to these questions, Marble Slab Creamery wants you to become their newest franchise owner.

Wichita is a great city for franchisees because the city is expanding its downtown center and Wichita’s economy is improving faster than the rest of the country. These two factors combine to create an opportunity that no franchise owner would want to miss out on!

Amazing Business Opportunities

The time to act is now! Wichita’s historic Union Station area, located in beautiful downtown Wichita, is undergoing a massive reconstruction and renovation. Here are a few things that will be coming from this renovation:

  • Dining
  • Retail space
  • Office space
  • 150,000 additional square feet
  • Five acres of public land

This new and improved area will undoubtedly be a hotspot for people of all ages to spend their time shopping, walking, and eating made-from-scratch ice cream. What better way to start your business?

Union Station isn’t the only desirable location in Wichita. Choose from virtually any mall or business development in the city. Your customers will be able to get to you wherever you are in the city by way of walking, tours, or free and accessible public transportation. For your customers who drive, Wichita boasts abundant parking throughout the city, even in the downtown area.

Quickly Growing Economy

The economy in Wichita has been improving over the last several years, and the years to come are predicted to be some of the best economic years Wichita has seen since 2005. The economic forecast shows higher wages and lower unemployment in the Wichita area. One franchisee told kansas.com that customers are not so “financially squeezed” as they used to be, which is improving business in all industries, particularly food services..

Undoubtedly, the improving economy is a boon to existing small business owners, but you can use it to your advantage, especially when you are just starting out. In Forbes’ ranking of cities with the lowest cost of doing business, Wichita ranks at number fifty-nine. In addition, the cost of living in Wichita is 8.8% lower than the national average. These two factors combined give the average citizen of Wichita more disposable income to spend on such things as gourmet ice cream, translating into serious potential for your business.

Local Attractions

A Marble Slab franchise is the perfect addition to the vibrant arts and entertainment scene in Wichita. Families, couples, and individuals work up an appetite for something sweet after spending time at one of more than fifteen museums, exhibits, and performances. Below is listed only a small number of the dozens of art exhibitions available to Wichita citizens:

  • Plaza of Heroines

  • Kansas Aviation Museum
  • Crown Uptown Professional Dinner Theater
  • Mosley Street Melodrama
  • Frank Lloyd Wright’s Allen-Lambe House

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.
