Description of franchise system

BEN & JERRY’S works hard to make each location a haven of ice cream ecstasy. This extremely well known and successful franchise company is enthusiastically involved in both their communities and business on a daily basis.

Franchise concept

Ben & Jerry's tries hard to maintain a franchise system where diversity, teamwork and individuality are treasured, encouraged and respected.

Ben & Jerry's provides you with both ongoing as well as initial support and training. It begins with an 8-day program of practical training at the Scoop University, the company’s national training center in South Burlington, VT. When your location is almost ready to open, you will have the opportunity to receive on-site instruction for a few days at your location. Throughout your time as a Ben & Jerry's franchise owner , you will also receive regular visits from Ben & Jerry's franchise support experts, as well as an attentive support staff who are always only a phone call away!

Possibly the most important and challenging decision you will make in this business is selecting a site for your store. Even though franchise owners are required to find their sites, the Ben & Jerry's franchise team will assist you in understanding the site selection process and in giving you very useful tools.
