It could be the dead of winter or the middle of summer; millions will still flock to ice cream franchises when they have that special craving. Billions are spent on ice cream and other frozen desserts in the U.S. annually. But with all of that competition, how do business owner stand out? To give itself a competitive edge, the Sweet Charlie's franchise is an ice cream brand that serves desserts without any preservatives, stabilizers, or emulsifiers. The ice cream franchise's delectable desserts are also made-to-order and have vegan options. Each cup starts from a liquid base: a premium ice cream base, fat-free frozen yogurt base, or vegan option. The base is then poured onto an cold surface along with the ingredients the customer selects. Everything mixes and mingles until the consistency is just right for rolling. This creates a creamy, quality cup of ice cream! The ice cream comes in a cup; it can be blended into a milkshake and is called the blaster; or can be placed inside a glazed donut and is called the Tall Charlie. Veterans are also incentivized to invest in the ice cream franchise with a 10% discount off of the initial franchise fee, which is $30,000.
In terms of support and training, franchisees can expect an initial training program that is broken down into on-the-job and classroom instruction. You will be assisted with site selection and grand opening, provided with marketing and advertising tools, and ongoing assistance and training for the entire time you're with the franchise.
