Description of franchise system

CARVEL is the nations first ice cream retail franchise and a leading provider of premium hand dipped and soft serve ice cream products and uniquely shaped ice cream cakes, including its signature Cookie Puss and Fudgie the Whale creations.

Tom Carvel’s future wife Agnes lent him 15 dollars in 1934. He used this to fill a tattered truck with ice cream and set off to find the American dream. And although he only got as far as Hartsdale, NY before the truck broke down, the vision never went away. After much hard work and perseverance, Carvel made his dream come true, and the success of Carvel is here to prove it!

Today, you can follow that same American dream with your own Carvel business ! Since their purchase in 2001 by Roark Capital Group, Carvel has enabled more new franchisees than in the previous ten years combined. The reasons abundant and the time is right for energetic entrepreneurs like you to get in on the ground floor of a swiftly growing business opportunity!

Carvel’s vision is simple. They want to be an innovator in franchising , a “best in class” employer and a national player in the ice cream industry. From their franchise locations to their foodservice outlets in stadiums, airports, arenas, and turnpikes, Carvel believes in promoting their franchises through multiple kinds of venues.

Carvel has assembled a team of experts in operations, design & construction, marketing, and much more, whose #1 goal every day is to assist you to do just this.
