A Brief History Ben & Jerry's Franchises:
Ben & Jerry's began offering franchises in 1981 to Vermont-area residents. The firm later began offering franchises to all United States residents in the early 1990s after it began to offer its popular fat-free sorbet and frozen yogurt products. The success of these early franchises encouraged the firm to offer franchises on a global basis in the early 2000s after it became a fully owned subsidiary of the Anglo-Dutch firm Unilever®. The firm now helps more than 1,000 franchise owners around the world sell Ben & Jerry's most popular products
