What Does it Take to Start an Ice Cream Business with Marble Slab?

Starting an ice cream business might seem like an intimidating prospect – it’s hard to know where to begin or what to expect. However, partnering with Marble Slab Creamery takes a lot of the guesswork out of the equation. We’ve been opening new franchises across the U.S. for decades, so we have a good understanding of what it takes to get off to a strong start. 

A Qualified Franchisee

If you’re new to the quick-service restaurant business, you might be wondering if you have what it takes to start an ice cream business. The truth is, running a restaurant does come with challenges. Starting a new one from scratch could be tricky without help. That’s why partnering with Marble Slab Creamery is a great advantage. We’ve developed strong training and support programs so we’re able to partner with franchisees from all sorts of backgrounds. Not having restaurant experience won’t get in the way of starting an ice cream business with us. 

What do we look for? We’re love franchisees who are …

  • Qualified to make the investment (they should have around $100,000 in liquid assets)
  • Passionate about mastering our business model
  • Committed to going above and beyond to grow their business

If any of this sounds like you, you might be a great fit for our franchise!

A Great Franchisor to Guide You as You Start an Ice Cream Business

You’re unlikely to find a franchisor in the ice cream business with more experience and dedication to franchisees than Marble Slab Creamery. It’s impossible to overstate the value of having industry experts to guide you in any business venture. If you’re dedicated to learning our methods and business model, we can put you on the right track.

One way we do that is by helping you identify the right franchise concept for your territory. Do you want to open a freestanding store that’s open year-round? What about leasing a space at a seasonal theme park or water park? Would you rather open a co-branded location at the airport or mall? Our franchising options are extremely flexible, and we’re dedicated to helping you find the best places in your area to capitalize on our product’s immense popularity.

Furthermore, we prepare you for ownership by providing you with comprehensive training. You’ll join us at our corporate headquarters to spend time with some of our experts. There, you’ll learn important information such as:

  • Our operational procedures
  • Ordering, inventorying, and record-keeping systems
  • The basics of marketing your ice cream shop
  • Growth strategies
  • … and much more

When you’ve returned to your location, you should feel ready to hit the ground running. Best of all, you can look forward to our continued support throughout your grand opening and beyond.
