Baskin-Robbins Franchise Opportunities Available In Los Angeles

World's Largest Chain of Ice Cream Specialty Shops Hosts Informational Seminar on April 23

April 14, 2014 // // CANTON, Mass. - Baskin-Robbins, the world's largest chain of ice cream specialty shops, is offering Los Angeles-area residents the exclusive scoop on how to own their very own Baskin-Robbins franchise. The company is announcing plans to expand its footprint with both existing and new franchisees in the Los Angeles area.

Baskin-Robbins franchising executives will host a Franchising Seminar on Wednesday, April 23 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. PST. This is a fantastic chance for anyone who has ever thought about owning his or her own ice cream shop to learn about the great business opportunity Baskin-Robbins can offer. The seminar will provide details about franchising opportunities and current development incentives. The event is being held at the Baskin-Robbins Training Center located at 1201 South Victory Blvd. in Burbank.

Interested franchising candidates who attend this seminar will get a first-hand look at the Baskin-Robbins training facility. The training facility sits next door to a fully-equipped Baskin-Robbins shop that even has a drive-thru. It's been remodeled to reflect the brand's new store design, which is focused on all of the fun, fresh ways Baskin-Robbins brings its flavors to life for guests. Ice cream and product tastings are included in the tour. To register for the seminar, visit, or for additional information, contact Franchising Manager Maria Hargett at

"Baskin-Robbins has six decades of experience refining its business system to offer a fun, rewarding new business opportunity to new franchise candidates," said Grant Benson, CFE, vice president of global franchising and business development, Dunkin' Brands. "As our brand continues to develop across California, we're looking for entrepreneurs in Los Angeles with strong financial backgrounds and a passion for their local communities to own their very own ice cream shop."

As part of the company's growth plans, new franchisees who sign a development agreement in 2014 and timely open their shops can take advantage of significant offers, including 50% off of the 20-year initial franchise fee - a $12,500 value – and reduced royalties for the first five years, including the first year at 0% - a substantial savings from the standard royalty rate of 5.9% for timely openings.* Furthermore, if the new franchisee signs a multi-unit agreement in 2014, he or she can receive the same incentives for each additional unit that timely opens.

Baskin-Robbins is also helping make business ownership a reality for U.S. military servicemen and women. For honorably discharged military veterans who sign an agreement in 2014 and open their shops before the end of 2015, Baskin-Robbins will waive the 20-year initial franchisee fee (a $25,000 value) for their first restaurant and offer a 0% royalty rate for the first two years and a reduced royalty rate for years three through five. If a military veteran signs a multi-unit agreement, he or she will be extended a 20% discount on the 20-year initial franchise fee for up to four additional shops that are timely opened, as well as a 10-year payment plan.*

Baskin-Robbins franchisees enjoy convenient hours of operation, minimal equipment and little product waste. They also benefit from award-winning training programs and comprehensive operating systems designed to help build business.

In 1945, Baskin-Robbins was founded in Glendale, Calif., by two ice cream enthusiasts who shared a dream to create an innovative ice cream shop that would be a neighborhood gathering place for families. Today, over 300 million people visit Baskin-Robbins each year to sample from the more than 1,000 flavor creations available in its ice cream library. Baskin-Robbins offers guests its wide range of hard scoop ice cream flavors, along with custom ice cream cakes, delicious frozen beverages, premium soft serve and take home frozen treats.
