Ice Cream Brand Announces Expansion Plans for 2016

March 28, 2016 // Franchising.com // ATLANTA - Carvel, America’s Freshest Ice Cream®, finished 2015 with an estimated $102 million in system-wide sales.

“Carvel has been serving handcrafted treats made with only authentic soft ice cream for more than 80 years, and today, our business is healthy and growing,” said Scott Colwell, president of Carvel. “The ever-changing ice cream industry demands creativity and we’re excited to continue this growth by keeping Carvel at the forefront of flavor innovation.”

Carvel currently operates over 398 franchise locations worldwide. The Atlanta-based company was the first retail ice cream franchise in the country and has become one of the most recognized names in the ice cream industry. Carvel has been ranked in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 and The Franchise Times’ Top 200+ lists.
