How Rita's Italian Ice & Frozen Custard Franchise Drives Revenue for Franchise Owners
Since Rita’s first opened its doors outside of Philadelphia in 1984, this top frozen dessert franchise has served up delicious treats for customers and impressive ROI for Franchise Owners—year after year. Yet what makes Rita’s a top QSR to own? To start, frozen desserts is a $32.11 billion* industry nationwide, with revenue forecast expected to reach $46.39 billion* by 2030. Rita’s also delivers to Franchise Owners with a simple business model and the opportunity for high profit margins.
Rita’s offers two core products—Italian ice and frozen custard—with low food costs and simple operations. Even preparation is minimal. As for staff, Rita’s requires just two to three people on a shift. From day one, Rita’s provides an abundance of support, even assisting in the evaluation of business locations. Training is ongoing, to help you master your skills and boost revenue and profitability.
Rita’s also continues to come up with bright ideas to help drive business—especially with their drive-thru concept. The company works with Franchise Owners to set up a drive-thru space, whether in a new location or adding to existing locations. Franchise Owner David Lewis is already a big fan. “I’m already seeing about 25% of our business coming through the drive-thru in our first two months,” he said. What better way to drive business during colder months when business dips, enabling customers to enjoy the top frozen dessert in the comfort of their warm car? The bottom line—drive-thrus mean additional revenue opportunities.
