Opening an Ice Cream Franchise vs. Going it Alone

When considering the Marble Slab ice cream franchise cost, many prospective franchisees wonder if it’s worth it to partner with a franchisor rather than just going it alone. After all, partnering with a franchisor does mean being responsible for a number of fees. At Marble Slab Creamery, we’ve structured our investment so that the fees we assess (such as our franchise fee) typically save our franchisees money compared to what they’d be spending on their own. Here, we’ll show you how opening an ice cream franchise has many benefits compared to going solo.

Breaking Down the Ice Cream Franchise Cost

The cost to open a new Marble Slab Creamery will vary depending on lots of factors, such as where you’ll be located and which franchise concept you choose (a kiosk, freestanding store, space in a food court, and so forth). An integral part of the total ice cream franchise cost is the franchise fee. This one-time fee entitles franchisees to operate under the Marble Slab Creamery brand name, and also covers some of the costs associated with their onboarding. 

Your total investment doesn’t just cover materials, a lease, uniforms, and supplies. We’ll also provide you with comprehensive training on how to operate your franchise most efficiently. We’ll work with you to find the perfect location. We’ll provide you with efficient methods of keeping records, ordering supplies, and much more. Independent owners could spend years figuring out the best ways of doing all this, but our franchisees are able to start strong thanks to our guidance. 

The Benefits of a Well-Established Brand Name

As we stated above, our ice cream franchise cost includes the right to operate under the Marble Slab Creamery brand name. This comes with major benefits that independent operators simply won’t enjoy. We’ve been in business for decades, and countless people have already fallen in love with our brand. They know that our commitment to quality and freshness elevates our ice cream far above what the competition has to offer!

Along these lines, when you partner with Marble Slab Creamery you’ll enjoy a cache of ready-made marketing materials that are simple to customize with the details of your location. One of the reasons we’ve been around so long is that, in addition to making some of the best ice cream around, we’re experts at finding potential customers and drawing them to our locations with targeted marketing. Not only will we provide you with materials to get you going, but we’ll also clue you into the strategies that have proven most effective in the past. 

Independent operators can spend a small fortune developing and implementing new marketing materials, but this is just one more area in which Marble Slab makes things simple for our franchisees. 

These are just two of the ways that our ice cream franchise cost can greatly simplify your life as a franchise owner. Contact us today to learn more about what it takes to get started!
