Evaluation Critieria: Best Ice Cream, Yogurt & Smoothie Franchise Opportunities
Growth Prospect
Growth Prospect
Those looking to start an ice cream, yogurt, or smoothie franchise often look for franchises which have a long history of creating attractive and financially proven businesses. During our analysis of each of the franchises featured in our rankings we spend time measuring the overall prospect for financial growth of each franchise.
Marketing Support
Marketing Support
During our analysis of ice cream and similar franchises, we often look at the marketing and advertising resources which the franchisors in our list use to assist their franchisees in reaching their target audience. It is important for the marketing to reach an audience interested in the product being offered.
Training
Training
Our independent research team is often involved in the analysis and reviewing of training processes and procedures created by leading franchises offering ice cream, yogurt, and smoothies. A lot of the products require the use of specialized equipment which require employees to be properly trained and educated.
Ongoing Support
Ongoing Support
A shared concern amongst many looking for an established franchise is the amount of support the franchisor will provide to their individual franchisees. We find it important for a franchisor to continue communicating with and assisting their franchisees in growing and improving their business through new offerings.
Value
Value
It is important for a franchisor to invest in quality branding in order to create a positive and innovative reputation within their industry. Much of the value of a franchise comes from public perception and financial performance. We compare the relative value of a number of different yogurt franchises.
