Cold Stone Creamery, one of the fastest-growing international ice cream concepts and part of the Kahala Corp family of brands, has announced that it has reached an agreement with Cold Stone ApS to open more than 40 stores in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland over the next five years. According to the information provided, the company is planning to open its first store in Denmark in Copenhagen later this year. This agreement marks Cold Stone Creamery’s first foray into Europe and signifies the company’s continued dedication to international growth.

“We are truly excited to partner with Cold Stone ApS to launch Cold Stone Creamery in Scandinavia and to bring the ultimate ice cream experience to Denmark this year,” said Lee Knowlton, President of International Kahala Corp. “They are incredible retail operators and share the same desire we do: to make people happy around the world.”

The majority shareholders of Cold Stone ApS are also the majority shareholders of Choose Holdings, which is the largest Build-A-Bear operator in Europe. Choose Holdings operates Build-A-Bear stores in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Germany.

Cold Stone Creamery opened its first store in Tempe, Ariz. in 1988 and its first international store in Tokyo, Japan, in November 2005. Since then, Cold Stone has expanded into a large number of countries including South Korea, Taiwan, China, the United Arab Emeritus, Bahrain, Indonesia and Mexico. Cold Stone Creamery is, the company says, planning to open 120 new stores in 12 countries this year as part of its international growth strategy.
