A Tasty Franchise Opportunity in Cleveland!

Marble Slab is looking for someone to be the latest franchise owner in Cleveland, Ohio. Cleveland’s city development projects and business resources offer many reasons to invest in the city, which is why Marble Slab wants to expand into this vibrant town. Keep reading for more information about why Cleveland has everything a Marble Slab owner needs to get started.

City Development Projects

Because Cleveland is an urban city, there are many areas that are in need of updating or renovating. Such areas that fall victim to population decline, rundown buildings, or underdeveloped land, adversely affect the city as a whole, which is why the Economic Development Department has created incentive programs for businesses that locate or develop in these neighborhoods, called Brownfield redevelopment areas. Several business show up in the annual report each year as having obtained land and loans in the desired areas, creating hundreds of jobs and retaining even more. These success stories include businesses that are relocating to Cleveland, moving within the city, or new businesses starting out.

Business Resources

In order to keep a thriving economy, Cleveland needs to continue to attract businesses from a variety of industries to the city via incentive programs. Aside from the Brownfield redevelopment program, there are a myriad of city initiatives to entice business owners to invest in Cleveland. There are programs that offer rebates for businesses that improve their building’s façade or infrastructure, grants for creating jobs, incentives for taking over vacant properties, grants for adopting green technology, and more. There are so many incentive programs in Cleveland that we couldn’t even begin to name them all.

Cleveland Browns

As if a thriving economy isn’t enough to entice you to invest in Cleveland, let us remind you that Cleveland is the home of an NFL team, the Cleveland Browns. Even though the Browns have never been to a Super Bowl, the good people of Cleveland are dedicated to the team. The Browns’ stadium is undergoing a massive renovation, in which the walkways will be widened, the displays will be updated, concessions will be renewed, and the various sports bars and private boxes will be rejuvenated. This renovation will leave no corner of the stadium untouched so Browns fans can continue to have the ultimate football experience at the stadium.

The time to invest is now. Cleveland’s business resources and dedication to city improvement make it the ideal city to invest in. If you’re ready to take the leap to become your own boss, click this LINK to find out how to open a Marble Slab franchise right away.

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.
