Cold Stone Franchise

If you love ice cream, wouldn't you love to own a Cold Stone franchise?

In 1988, Cold Stone Creamery was started by Don and Susan Sutherland in Tempe, Arizona. They had a dream of turning ice cream into a work of art. Today, with over 1400 Cold Stone franchises around the world, the people who keep things running still focus on the original mission: "We will make people happy."

The ice cream available at each Cold Stone Creamery is made fresh every day with each flavor and combination mixed on the frozen granite slab that gives the franchise its name. Each unique flavor is called a "Creation," and more Creations are continually being invented.
