It’s time to celebrate! Ben & Jerry’s has announced a trio of new Scoop Shop franchise openings, with more on the way for 2020. The exciting news adds to the global ice cream brand’s current 10th birthday celebrations and the launch of their new ‘birthday cake’ flavour - marking a decade since entering the Australian market.
Ben & Jerry’s and franchise partner, DC Strategy have today announced that two new scoop shops are confirmed to open around Melbourne, as well as an additional location in Auckland, New Zealand.
James Young, Head of Franchise Sales and Development at DC Strategy, said, “We’ve been working with the Ben & Jerry’s team for a number of years and the new string of franchise grants show that we’re continuing to grow and evolve in innovative and socially-responsible ways. We’ve been their franchise partner since the beginning and it’s great to see their vision and passion come to life. The new scoop shops are key assets to the network performance and will provide a solid foundation for the next wave of franchisees.”
