Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt Franchises

Ice Cream and Frozen Yogurt

When you look for franchise opportunities, you no doubt want to find a brand that will make people happy and keep them coming back for more. And if you’re looking for a refreshing and crowd-pleasing treat, you can’t do much better than ice cream and frozen yogurt. 

The market for ice cream and frozen yogurt is going strong. According to the International Dairy Foods Association, the total nationwide revenues generated by ice cream in the U.S. surpassed $10 billion in 2010. Take-home ice cream sales represented over two-thirds of that figure, but there was also a healthy market for ice cream aficionados dining in. In total, the IDFA found that 9 percent of all milk produced by U.S. dairy farmers is used to produce ice cream.

The potential profits to be had through ice cream and frozen yogurt are enormous. If you’re considering starting a franchise in the near future, there are few better directions to turn.
