The dynamic ice cream brand now has five locations in Idaho.
Kuna, ID (RestaurantNews.com) Stella ice cream July kicks off with the announcement of its very first franchise sale.
The first franchise unit will be located in Kuna, Idaho, marking the brand’s fifth store in the state. Other stores, all company owned, are in Caldwell, Boise, Eagle and Nampa.
Travis Richey, Ryan Rose and Tyson Dabell are the first group of franchise owners to join the network. “We are extremely excited to have Travis and his partners as Stella’s newest franchisees,” said Chad Hartley, CEO and co-founder of Stella’s Ice Cream. “Travis and his team are a group of experienced entrepreneurs who will only help to make the franchise as a whole better. We look forward to opening many more locations with them.
Stella’s Ice Cream is built on 4 pillars that set it apart in all current territories: Unusual Kindness, Audacious Boldness, Steady Progression, and Rooted Community. The brand strives to connect with each community through partnerships with local dessert artisans and local artists.
Hartley says momentum for Stella’s started strong and has continued to grow since the franchise’s sales launch. “Since the announcement that Stella’s Ice Cream was going to be offering franchise opportunities, we’ve had many interested parties wanting to open their own stores,” Hartley said. “It’s obvious that people are excited about the brand and we see that interest only grows with every additional store we open!”
Franchise owners are welcome to bring their creativity and come up with new flavor combinations – new flavors just have to go through a pre-approval process. Each franchise package includes ongoing operational support, marketing guidance, exclusive territory, operations manual, and more.
