Ben & Jerry’s Homemade, Inc.
Ben and Jerry's products are distributed nationwide and in selected foreign countries in supermarkets, grocery stores, convenience stores, franchised Ben & Jerry's scoop shops, restaurants, and other venues. Ben & Jerry's, a wholly-owned autonomous subsidiary of Unilever, operates its business on a three-part mission statement emphasizing product quality, economic reward and a commitment to the community.
Our customers go to Ben & Jerry's scoop shops with a powerful set of expectations that go way beyond the great taste of our ice cream. Ben & Jerry's franchisees deliver on those expectations and more, serving up euphoric flavors of ice cream, frozen yogurt and sorbet in an atmosphere enhanced by a genuine commitment to outstanding customer service and to community involvement. Backed by our unique brand and shared desire to operate in a socially responsible way, our franchisees are harnessing the power of "doing well by doing good."
We are seeking area developers and single unit operators to be part of our growth:
+ Our franchisees come first; we are available, accessible and provide all franchisees a personal touch.
+ We are not your typical franchise company – our conservative development strategy enables us to find the strongest operators to open stores in "A" locations only.
+ We support you from start to finish – our training and support teams eliminate the frustrations typically experienced in a start-up business by walking you through site selection, store design, construction, your grand opening and beyond.
+ Four store models that fit almost any real estate need ranging from 200 to 2000 sq. ft.
+We offer extensive training at Scoop U in Vermont and in your store.
+ Continuous research and development keeps new products and ideas flowing.
+ Innovative marketing and promotional campaigns throughout the year.
+ Co-branding opportunity with Green Mountain Coffee Roasters.
+ Industry-leading revenues.
+You don’t make the ice cream yourself; it’s all made in Vermont.
+The scoop shop menu includes ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbet, smoothies, shakes, cookies, and brownies.
+Average total start-up cost per shop is approximately $250,000.
+Our franchisee fee is on a sliding scale from $30,000 to $9,000
+Royalties are 2% of gross sales; the marketing contribution is 4%.
+We do not offer financing, but we do have relationships with national lenders who prefer to work with our franchisees. This approval process can be expedited to about 2-3 weeks.
+Your first store could be open within six months of your initial inquiry.
