A Winning Formula
The Gallone’s Ice Cream Parlour business has been built on one hundred and thirty years’ experience in the ice cream industry, and the latest development in their impressive history is the Ice Cream Parlour.
As manufacturers of ice cream Gallone’s have run tours of their factory for children and schools for years. With the opening of their Parlour in Northampton an obvious development was to offer Parlour Parties where children, and even adults, could design their own ice cream flavours and sundaes and even see some of them being made. This has been so successful that bookings run to four months in advance.
As a Gallone’s Ice Cream Parlour franchisee, not only will you be able to offer the fun that is our business but your parlour will have built into the design its very own factory where party attendees can create flavours and the party host gets to make their own ice cream creation for their friends to eat and enjoy.
As one of our franchise owners you will operate a parlour in your very own exclusive territories, offering customers coffee, pastries, desserts and ice cream. We even sell waffles for those not so hot and sunny days. This means your parlour has appeal all day long and all year round – with the obvious increases in the warm spring, summer and autumn months. With birthday and celebration parties all year round business is all but guaranteed. Using our tried and tested formula you will be taught how simple it is to generate your very own regular repeat customer base.
Although a very simple business, a Gallone’s Ice Cream franchise is not for the work-shy. It demands hard work, dedication and bags of enthusiasm. Gallone’s is all about the love of ice cream and the fun which surrounds it – we’d expect successful franchisees to know and understand this. Although we provide for you all the training needed to run a great Gallone’s Ice Cream Parlour you will need to illustrate your capability in being able to successfully manage, or employ people who can successfully manage our Parlour.
Start Up Package
As with all businesses there is an initial financial commitment - and a Gallone’s Ice Cream Parlour is no different. What makes a franchise, and therefore this business, less of a risk is that you know that someone else has already taken the steps to check out what does and doesn’t work and what are the rights and wrongs in running a successful parlour.
Depending on the size of the property that you are considering, you should be budgeting a figure of around £110,000 as a total investment. This figure will provide you with:
- A ten-year Franchise Agreement
- Your initial training
- The fit out of your parlour and very own ice cream factory
- All your equipment such as coffee machine, dishwasher, fridges and freezers, display cabinets and china
- An EPOS (till) system and software
- The opening stock
You should expect sales in year one to achieve around £200,000 with profits of approximately £50,000. These figures given are purely an estimation based on our success and we will be able to provide you with a more detailed figure once we have an understanding of the actual size and state of repair of the property, and when you are considering opening.
