First Steps to Take When Opening an Ice Cream Shop

The first step is to gather all the information you can about ice cream franchises. Search for a few ice cream franchises in your area and visit their locations, hang out, and eat some ice cream. This will help you get a feel for the overall concept of the ice cream franchise.

Try to visit at least three different ice cream franchises and speak with the owners. Interview them as if you were a student trying to do a school project on ice cream franchising (even older adults can pass as evening college students).

Some questions to ask current ice cream franchise owners:

1. Ask how their profits are?

2. Are they happy with the franchise they chose?

3. What is the most difficult part of their job?

4. What was their first step in opening their shop?

The next step would be to request information from the Ice Cream franchise you are interested in to discover what their particular start up costs are and initial investment requirements (total investment can be $90,000 – $150,000 depending on the franchise and type of store).

All Ice Cream franchises require various capital investment amounts and have varying degrees of support. Analyzing all the information you can will give you a better idea of which Ice Cream franchise is best suited to fit your needs.
