Frozen Custard, the growth niche of the frozen dessert industry
An estimated 285 million Americans enjoyed a frozen treat last year. According to recent Nielsen Research, frozen custard is the fastest growing segment of the ice cream market with a 134% increase in year over year revenue.
Our Frozen Custard
“Made fresh, just for you” is not a marketing tag line, it’s a promise. Our secret family recipe has stood the test of time. With sustainable farming practices and clean living, our dairy farms provide us with the best ingredients for our frozen custard. Our simple process also lends itself to creativity and variety as every stand has the ability to create any flavor from our ever expanding flavor portfolio or experiment with a recipe created in house.
Who Makes a Great Franchisee?
Our owners epitomize the direct correlation between delivering the Abbott’s Experience and a profitable business. Channeling their passion for Abbott’s, franchisees apply the processes and methods learned through their training to consistently deliver the Abbott’s Experience and in doing so realize both their fiscal and personal goals.
- What are you passionate about? Passion is the single most common trait among our owners and drives them to be successful every day. Our owners are fiercely passionate about our product, our brand, our people and our customers.
- Being a good neighbor. Our owners understand the value of making a positive impact in their communities. They are constantly giving back through donations, fundraising or sponsorships. Each franchisee is dedicated to being more than just a business in town, they are committed to being an active participant in their community.
- Personable. Abbott’s franchisees love people. They love working with their teams, serving their customers and meeting people in the community. Their personalities are truly the heart and sole of their business and allow them to be successful.
