At Marble Slab, we strive to provide our franchise owners with ongoing support and training in order to keep their businesses growing. The perfect Marble Slab opportunity is in Charleston, with its thriving economy and amazing small business resources.

Robust Economy

As the capital of West Virginia, Charleston is the biggest economic powerhouse in the state. Indeed, Charleston’s low cost of living and high rate of job growth earned it a place on Forbes’ list of the 200 Best Small Places for Business and Careers. In recent years, household income growth in Charleston has gone up by 2.5% while unemployment has dropped to 5.5%. It’s no wonder that Charleston is in the top 200 cities in the nation, with its major industries as diverse as they are; financial services, telecommunications, and energy are the biggest players in the local economy, though there are several other industries that play smaller roles.

Small Business Association

Small businesses are the most important part of any economy’s success, and West Virginia is certainly no exception. There are 118,000 small businesses in the state, which makes up almost 96% of employers. Compare those numbers to the rest of the nation, where roughly half of all jobs come from small businesses, and it’s obvious that West Virginia’s small business needs are unique. That’s why Charleston has partnered with a regional Small Business Association to provide resources and networking opportunities to business owners at all experience levels. The SBA works to help business owners with “the three Cs and a D: Capital, Counseling, Contracting, and Disaster Loans.” To date, West Virginia’s SBA has invested $42.5 million in 162 small businesses, creating hundreds of jobs and retaining even more.

With everything Charleston has to offer a Marble Slab owner, the decision to invest is an easy one. The city’s economy is strong, it offers many resources to small business owners, and the projections are only getting better. At Marble Slab, we want our franchise owners to have every tool they need, which is why we want to open a location in Charleston.

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.
