About Ben & Jerry's

Ben & Jerry's is one of America's favorite ice-cream brands as it's known for delivering countless innovative flavors made of nothing but the best ingredients available. The brand is committed to using ingredients that are not only full of flavor but that are good for the body and the environment. Ben & Jerry's sources non-GMO and Fairtrade ingredients, milk and cream from family farms and eggs from Certified Humane cage-free farms. They are the brains behind the "Caring Dairy" sustainable farming program which they use to connect with local dairies.

The brand's ice-cream may be delectable but the shops themselves is where the true experience lies. Ben & Jerry's scoop shops are designed to bring to fans and first-timers alike an ultimate, immersive Ben & Jerry's experience. Each shop's environment is welcoming and family-friendly, ideal for helping fans forge deeper connections with each other and the brand.

Why Ben & Jerry's?

One of the best reasons to franchise a Ben & Jerry's is the brand's reputation. Ben & Jerry's is a household name, is known for its unwavering ethics and environmental support and is committed to providing fans with the highest quality ice-cream available in innovative flavors. This is reason enough to franchise a scoop shop. Reputation aside, Ben & Jerry's provides top-notch and on-going support from the moment you sign the franchise agreement onward.

Ideal Candidate

If you meet the liquid capital and minimum net worth requirements, franchising a Ben & Jerry's may be a good idea for you. Ben & Jerry's also wants their franchisees to be socially conscious and active in their communities; passionate about operating a responsible and ethical business; and have honesty, integrity and humility.

The franchisor is also looking for individuals with at least two years of business management experience, a college degree or higher and excellent project management skills, business acumen and an ability to develop and execute a business plan. These people should know how to recruit, train and motivate staff to meet Ben & Jerry's strict standards. They should also be systems oriented and value the franchise system.

Training And Support

Ben & Jerry's training program includes a 7-day training for up to three operators; an $1,800 fee will apply for each addition person. Follow-up training may be necessary.
