3 Types of Franchise Establishments: Which One is Right for You?

So you want to open a franchise, do ya? Well first, there are 3 types of franchises you should be aware of. Hopefully this gives you some insight into what owning each type of franchise would be like.

  • Business franchises
  • Product franchises
  • Manufacturing franchises

If you are interested in owning an ice cream business, there are several types of franchises that could fit within the ice cream industry.

  • You could own a specific ice cream brand restaurant.
  • You could own your own ice cream shop and sell other brand’s ice cream.
  • You could start an ice cream producing factory and make ice cream for franchise brands.

These three examples of starting an ice cream business illustrate the difference between different types of franchises. Many of you won’t start your own ice cream production factory but it’s a reasonable possibility that you could own your own brand franchise. Here is a more in-depth description of what exactly that means.

Ice Cream Business Franchise

A business franchise allows you to own and operate your own store location under a corporate name. If you started an ice cream business for Marble Slab, you would have that name displayed on your storefront, menus, and anywhere else customers will see it.

When you own a business franchise, it is like starting your own business but with a little more help. You already have an established brand, product, and customer base. You can enjoy starting an ice cream business without some of the hassle that comes with starting your own business from scratch.

One of the great things about being a franchisee for Marble Slab Creamery are the resources available to you. From the start of your journey, there are people and resources at your fingertips to ensure you have everything you need to get up and running.

Product Franchise

If you want to start an ice cream business you will need the delicious dessert to sell. You may be able to produce the product yourself, but more likely you will distribute ice cream made by another company.

A product franchise is like a boost to your business. You may have started your ice cream business and have a stable brand. You can then purchase ice cream recipes from another company and split the profits of anything you sell for them.

Manufacturing Franchise

If you are in need of more business in your ice cream factory, a manufacturing franchise may be right for you. You can produce ice cream for another company and then sell it using the owner’s brand.
