Frozen yogurt may be the healthy new kid in town, but Americans still love their most famous frozen treat—ice cream.
Ice cream franchises sell ice cream and related desserts at retail locations and have focused on higher quality ice cream in recent years.
Even though premium ice cream is less healthy, its popularity has been rising, showing that when consumers choose to snack they’d like to have the best.
A cheaper scoop
Those interested in a smaller investment might be interested in kiosk or cart ice cream franchise models, which are far less costly to purchase and run.
We all scream for ice cream
- The average American eats 24 pounds of ice cream a year.
- Ice cream is a seasonal business in much of the U.S., with more sales during the heat of summer.
- Vanilla is the most popular ice cream flavor among consumers, followed by Mint Chocolate Chip, then Cookies and Cream.
Ice cream is a stable food industry that saw $10 billion in revenue last year, which makes this a perfect time to look into ice cream franchises.
