The Ben & Jerry’s franchise tale starts back in 1978, in an old gas station in Burlington, Vermont when Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield open their very first scoop shop. Nearly 4 decades have passed since the first scoop shop was opened and now Ben and Jerry’s is known globally for their signature style of fun, creamy ice cream jammed with chunks and swirls of deliciousness.
Ben & Jerry’s has over 800 scoop shops globally, and has been operating for nearly four decades. Over this time, we have refined and optimised our business model to ensure our franchisees have the very best opportunity at success. We encourage our franchisees to follow our successful business plan and leverage our popular brand and our socially responsible business practices to create profitable scoop shop franchises that give back to the local community.
