The agreement marks CREAM’s largest and most significant franchising announcement since launching its franchise opportunity in 2012, and will develop stores starting in South Florida before moving towards West Florida and beyond.
“There’s definitely a lot of excitement around the brand,” said CREAM President and COO Jim Ryan, noting the company’s recent recognition as one of ‘27 Ice Cream Shops You Need To Visit Before You Die,’ according to BuzzFeed.
“Enjoying an ice cream sandwich can allow everyone to reconnect with their inner child. We took that old favorite to the next level so that people of all ages can enjoy an endless combination of cookies, ice cream flavors and toppings. Our Florida customers will absolutely love it.”
The first three locations will be opened in the Miami area by 17-year-old Armando Martinez Stone and his parents. Armando discovered CREAM while participating in his Cypress Bay high school’s DECA program. He created a detailed franchise development strategy, which not only won first place in the “International Business Plan” competition, but also enticed his parents to become franchisees.
