When you open an ice cream franchise with Marble Slab Creamery, you have the flexibility to choose where to set up shop. We’ve opened hundreds of franchises over the last 30+ years, and we’re able to assess the criteria for a location with great potential. We’ll help you find the places in your community that are most likely to lead to a successful Marble Slab Creamery franchise. One thing they generally have in common? Strong foot traffic. Here, we’ll give you a few examples of especially popular spots to open an ice cream franchise.

1. Amusement Parks

Although they’re often open seasonally, amusement parks are great places to open an ice cream franchise. An ice cream cone is the perfect accessory to a day of fun, and our wide selection of fresh-made flavors is a cut above typical amusement park fare. Franchisees can opt to open a kiosk or lease a space in a shared kitchen – our requirements are flexible!

2. College Campuses

College students are notorious for their love of sweet treats like ice cream, and Marble Slab Creamery is a great addition to any food court or campus retail space. Students love that they can grab a made-to-order ice cream to go or take home a pint for later. Faculty, clubs, and teams love that they can purchase ice cream cakes to celebrate special occasions.

3. Shopping Centers

Marble Slab Creamery has opened many successful locations in shopping malls because people love that they can enjoy our ice cream without much of a wait – it’s the perfect accessory for a day of shopping. Whether it’s a freestanding store in a shopping center or a shared space in a mall, these locations have a strong track record. 

4. Airports

Millions of people make their way through the world’s airports every day, and oftentimes they have time on their hands. Between showing up early to get through security and getting behind because of layovers, people love to snack in airports. One airport business owner reports: “There’s money out there, which is why I did it, to be quite honest … You have hundreds of thousands of people walking by, and if a flight is delayed you’ve got a pretty captive audience. And the return is quick.” Customers love quick-service restaurants like Marble Slab Creamery that allow them to get their food quickly and be on their way.
