The ice cream chain looks to find new store owners
by C. Daniel Baker
Baskin-Robbins is the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty shops. Started in 1945, Baskin-Robbins was founded by 2 ice cream enthusiasts who were looking to create a neighborhood place where families could meet over ice cream, cakes, and frozen beverages. Today over 300 million people visit the over 7,000 shops the brand has in over 50 countries. The store was named the top ice cream and frozen dessert franchise by Entrepreneur Magazine in its annual Franchise 500 ranking.
The franchise (which is part of the Dunkin’ Brands, Inc. family of companies) is seeking entrepreneurs. With 450 stores already established across California, Baskin-Robbins is looking to find qualified franchisees to own and operate restaurants in the Greater Los Angeles area.
Baskin-Robbins executives will host a “Baskin-Robbins Restaurant for Sale” seminar on Jan. 9th from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Baskin-Robbins Training Center located at 1201 South Victory Blvd., in Burbank to share information, answer questions and demonstrate the benefits of joining the Baskin-Robbins brand.
“For more than six decades, Baskin-Robbins has been refining its proven business system by combining delicious treats with a simple operating model,” said Grant Benson, vice president of franchising and market planning, Dunkin’ Brands, Inc., via press release. “As the Baskin-Robbins brand continues to develop, we’re now looking for entrepreneurs in Los Angeles with strong financial backgrounds and a passion for their local communities to own their very own ice cream shop.”
