Opportunities have arisen for investors to be among just a handful of area developers for the successful global brand, Baskin-Robbins. Since 1945, Baskin-Robbins has introduced over 1,000 unique ice cream recipes and frozen drinks, including their world famous ice cream cakes. Ranked by Franchise Direct in 2012 as the world’s 15th most successful global franchise, Baskin-Robbins is set to further establish itself in chosen areas of the UK with just a few multi-store investors taking portfolios of five to ten stores.
Who doesn’t love ice cream?
Baskin-Robbins is seeking entrepreneurs with a strong financial background, and a minimum of £300,000 liquid capital, to invest in and develop a multi-store portfolio. As the world’s leading retailer of ice cream products, this fantastic investment opportunity outweighs economic uncertainty in offering proven products as affordable luxuries for the whole family. Investors can expect to enjoy a share of a UK ice cream market expected to reach £841 million in 2012 (Mintel).
In 2011, Baskin-Robbins’ stores had global franchise-reported sales totalling approximately $1.8 billion. A typical five-store portfolio in the UK has the potential to turn over £1million in the first full year of trading, with EBITDA (Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortisation) of 10-15%. Baskin-Robbins products are much loved around the world, selling in excess of 300 million scoops of ice cream every week in almost 7,000 stores, in over 50 countries. Good investment opportunities in proven global brands do not arise often, so with limited openings potential franchisees should act fast.
