Cream of the crop

BASKIN-ROBBINS, the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty shops, is seeking franchisees throughout Australia and has deemed Emerald as a new business “hot spot”.

The company said it had earmarked Emerald as a suitable location for a new Baskin-Robbins store as it was a promising area with a good potential for long-term growth.

Following a visit to Australia earlier this year by Nigel Travis, chief executive of Dunkin’ Brands, the parent company of Baskin-Robbins, he was looking to open a number of new restaurants around Australia in the next 12 months.

The company provides franchise partners with full support and guidance, and assists with store fit-outs, marketing and promotional collateral, along with ongoing training workshops and knowledge-building materials.

“We are entering a new phase of growth and are actively looking to significantly increase the number of restaurant locations throughout Australia in the next few months,” Baskin-Robbins development manager Trent Graham said.

“We are looking for people who are passionate and want to take on a new and exciting challenge.

“Australia’s local and regional communities, with their enormous business and development potential, are the perfect place to start.”

In addition to Emerald, Baskin-Robbins was exploring locations in Perth, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, North Queensland, and Sydney to open new franchises.
