Ice cream is a billion dollar business that is responsible for countless jobs. The average American consumers 23 pounds of ice cream and other frozen desserts annually. As you can see, it is an in-demand business that is worth investing in. One of the biggest ice cream franchises in the world is Dairy Queen. Founded in 1940 when Ice cream manufacturer J.F. McCullough experimented with a recipe for a new frozen dairy product, stemming from his belief that ice cream tasted better when it was soft and served fresh from the freezer, not frozen solid. In addition to ice cream, such as its signature Blizzard, Dilly Bars, Waffle Cone Treats and Orange Julius smoothies, the company also sells food like burgers, chicken fingers and French fries. The ice cream can be topped with Snickers pieces, Butterfinger chunks, chocolate chip cookie dough, berry cheesecake and other tempting sweets. The brand has been adding food to the menu since 2002, when Dairy Queen's Grill & Chill concept was introduced.
The company is looking for prospective candidates who have previous restaurant experience and a stellar reputation in the community. Additionally. franchisees can also expect assistance approved franchisees with virtually every step of development, from site planning and construction to post-launch operations and 365 marketing support. The brand sets itself apart from other ice-cream shops with its ultrathick soft serve ice-cream that can hang upside down without dropping from the glass. If you are looking to get your piece of the billion-dollar industry, Dairy Queen can be the franchise for you.
