Rapid Growth

Lexington has seen huge growth in the last several years, especially in the downtown center. Lexington sits in the center of what resembles an educational triangle, with University of Kentucky, Transylvania University, and Bluegrass Community and Technical College within a short distance of the city. Much of the city’s growth has come from the large student population of the city, as students want hip housing, new businesses, and things to do.

The students are a driving force behind many of the new residential developments and the renovations on the existing historic neighborhoods. Indeed, the city has proposed over $1 billion in investments over the next decade, all with the goal of revitalizing and expanding the city center. Your Lexington franchise can surely be an attraction for the student population to come for a treat after class or before a date, giving you a constantly growing and changing customer base.

Thriving Economy

It’s so important to learn about the economy of the city in which you are thinking about investing, which is why you will be happy to learn that Lexington’s is one of the strongest economies in the nation. According to Forbes, who ranked Lexington #16 on its list of the Best Places for Business and Careers, Lexington has been able to keep up with its huge population growth, maintaining an unemployment rate of 4%. This rate, two full percentage points lower than the national average, is in spite of the hundreds of people who move to Lexington each year. Indeed, Lexington is also one of the best cities for job growth, according to Forbes, with a job growth rate of 2.7%.

Although it used to be a tobacco farming and manufacturing town, Lexington’s economy has diversified into many successful industries, including technology, higher education, construction, healthcare, finance, and energy. Your Lexington franchise will benefit from this diverse economy, as diversity is key to an economy staying afloat during times of economic downturn.

Between its rapidly growing population, citywide development, and amazing economy, Lexington has everything a small business might want. This exciting city is a great place to invest in, which is why we want one of our Marble Slab locations there.

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.
