Franchising in Philadelphia, PA

For potential Marble Slab Creamery franchisees, Philadelphia offers a wonderful opportunity. Philadelphia is one of the largest cities in America and offers a largely untapped market for ice cream franchisees. Philadelphia has just begun to experience population growth after several years of population decline, which makes the city ideal for franchisees looking to beat the crowd and establish market presence.

Population and Target Market

The population of Philadelphia was about 1.5 million as of the last census, and the population density was 11,379. Nearly 25 percent of the population is under the age of 18, which is Marble Slab Creamery’s best target market. With such a high population, the potential for growth opportunities is extensive. Selecting a location that is in close proximity to attractions that are frequented by the target market will help franchisees to capitalize on the high population and population density. Parks, schools, and amusement park areas all present great prospects for establishing a Marble Slab Creamery franchise location.

Economy and Housing

As of 2010, Philadelphia had the seventh largest metropolitan economy in the United States. Philadelphia is home to many Fortune 500 companies and headquarters to several large corporations. The presence of these companies helps to ensure a more stable economy than that of many areas of the country. Despite these economic assurances, the housing market in Philadelphia remains more reasonably priced than most areas. This is good news for franchisees looking to move to the area, as profit margins from the Marble Slab Creamery franchise will not be depleted while franchisees attempt to establish themselves.

Scenery and Lifestyle

Philadelphia has a notable cityscape, with more murals than any other American city. The city is also home to many popular sports teams and is a center for popular music. Franchisees will be able to enjoy these varieties of entertainment, along with the many cultural attractions available while running a successful Marble Slab Creamery franchise in Philadelphia.

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.
