Resources for Business Owners

If Columbus wants to keep its high economic ranking, the city needs to continue to invest in its business owners; that’s why Columbus has partnered with the regional Small Business Association (SBA) to encourage job growth and investment within the city. The SBA offers resources to business owners in a number of ways, including: research and development, location assistance, business planning, one-on-one counseling, and more. The SBA also offers fantastic networking opportunities for business owners via training events and seminars.

Ohio State University

As the third-largest campus in the United States, Ohio State University is home to a diverse student population that is constantly changing. This student population is great news for a Marble Slab owner, because students will undoubtedly enjoy getting an ice cream treat in between classes, before a study break, or even with a date on the way to one of the university’s many museums. Indeed, this college town has a myriad of things for the students and general population to do including the Gateway Film Center, which shows a combination of blockbusters, indie flicks, and documentaries.

So what are you waiting for? Columbus has so many wonderful things to offer a franchise owner that we could go on for pages and pages more.

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.
