IMG_0181Baskin-Robbins is pleased to announce the release of single-store franchise opportunities in the UK. The single store investments require just £75k of liquid capital for a total launch cost of £150k, of which 50% will normally be funded by a high street bank.

“We have a great team here in the UK who are dedicated to helping franchisees grow their sales and profitability and with the introduction of our single-store franchises we are opening up the Quick Service Restaurant market to so many more people. Baskin-Robbins has just been listed 17th in the top 100 global franchises by Franchise Direct and we’re really not surprised! The list details the franchises which are performing best on an international level and we have beaten all other ice-cream franchises this year, as well as rising 5 places on last year,” explains Jim Johnstone, Baskin-Robbins’ UK General Manager.

For 65 years, Baskin-Robbins has been creating irresistible treats to make customers smile and feel good. Since their foundation in 1945, they have introduced over 1,000 unique, fun and much-loved ice cream recipes, frozen drinks, and ice-cream cakes. Their stores continue to be popular as their treats are an affordable treat for families. Baskin-Robbins sells in excess of 300 million scoops of ice cream each week across 6,700 stores in 50 countries.

“The single store opportunity also gives the team at Baskin-Robbins the chance to see how the store owner operates their store and to see what help they might need to go on to become great multi-store owners if they wish to do so – so it’s a win-win for both parties.

“We can only ensure that our brand continues to grow across the UK by getting the right franchisees on board and giving them the best support possible. Finding the right store location is key to a successful launch and each franchisee has a dedicated support manager to help with this,” adds Jim.

This press release has created wide spread coverage on franchise related websites and social media. It will also be included in upcoming print publications. To find out how Coconut Creatives can help you generate great PR why not contact us.
