TOP FROZEN YOGURT / ICE CREAM FRANCHISESWEEK OF DECEMBER 4, 2022

Top 10 Frozen Yogurt / Ice Cream Franchises

If there is one thing that many Americans love, it is ice cream. From frozen yogurt to soft serve, to ice cream cake, any form of ice cream is delectable and delicious. According to the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA), the average American eats 23 pounds of frozen desserts annually. Owning a frozen yogurt/ice cream franchise can be a fun and lucrative business. While ice cream is thought of as a seasonal treat, your local ice cream shop can ensure that treats, like ice cream cake and soft-serve ice cream bring in customers year-round. Some brands, for example, do this by adding coffee, light meals, and pastries to their menus. Even though people are more health-conscious these days, the demand for a great ice cream shop will always be there.
