SOLD – Franchise Ice Cream Shop
Fast-growing franchise hand-made, organic gourmet ice cream shops with growing sales and territorial rights in a rapidly growing city are available for acquisition. This business was established in late 2016 by the current owner of the business. This location is placed in the heart of the city’s old downtown and serves more locals and tourists that visit the site. The area this business is in is growing as the city itself is growing as condos and townhomes being constantly being built in the immediate area. Although some marketing is already in place through social media and coupons, other forms of proactive marketing can be utilized to generate more cash flow and acquire new customers from the untapped areas within the city. There are many ways to increase overall sales by obtaining more corporate accounts, creating sample-sized pops, attending more festivals, adding other drinks such as teas and coffee, and offering chocolate dipping and customized toppings. Competition is expected for desert-based businesses, but other competitors are not specialized in this type of desert and offer sub-par products compared to these gourmet ice cream shops. A huge advantage of this type of business is their territorial rights in the majority of North Dallas ranging from Frisco, Allen, Murphy, Plano, and McKinney. Structuring a system of managers for each potential location will be extremely beneficial as this will allocate more time for the owner to utilize towards proactive marketing. This business has everything in place for a potential buyer to proactively market the business and grow the brand significantly if the new owner is capable of developing the stores in the territories owned.
