Franchises have been getting into the spirit this week as we draw closer to Halloween. But the only thing scary these franchises are serving up are frighteningly good deals, deliciously festive treats, and the best kinds of tricks to go along with your treats. Enter if you dare into this week's Friday Franchising News to find out more!
Halloween is Spooktacular at Baskin-Robbins
To celebrate Halloween, Baskin-Robbins is treating guests to a sweet deal on Monday, October 31. As part of the ice cream franchise's "Celebrate 31" promotion, guests can enjoy all regular and kid-sized ice cream scoops for just $1.31 at participating stores across the country. This deal applies to any ice cream flavor, including a range of candy-themed flavors to get you amped up to trick-or-treat. Baskin-Robbins also has a new Silly Monster Cake, Halloween Polar Pizza, and the favorite Piñata Pumpkin Patch Cake for sale, perfect for any Halloween celebration. These festive dessert options will help you celebrate this holiday in style!
Nestle® Toll House® Café by Chip® Pumpkin-Spices Things Up
Fall's favorite flavor is back at Nestle® Toll House® Café by Chip®. This Monday, pumpkin flavor made its way into cafés across North America in the form of pumpkin spice lattes and freshly baked pumpkin spice cookies. Though the premium dessert franchise is best known for their Nestle Toll House chocolate chip cookies and specialty Nescafe Milano coffees, these popular seasonal treats may give the traditional favorites a run for their money. But you'll need to get them while you can because these fall treats are only available through November 20.
Petland's Tricks and Treats for Pets
Petland offers up some Halloween advice for a safe and healthy holiday for your pets. The pet store franchise makes suggestions for your pet's safety this Halloween like keeping your pet on a shorter leash in the trick-or-treating crowd; keeping glowsticks, candles, and other spooky decorations out of reach of curious sniffers; being mindful of your magical black cats to keep them out of harm's way; and keeping your pets out of the goodie bags and away from chocolate. As for those costume-loving pets, a pumpkin, a hot dog, a bumblebee and Star Wars characters top the list for most popular pet threads, but the most important thing to remember is to make sure the costume fits well and doesn't restrict your pet. With these tips and tricks, Petland is helping you have a safe and fun Halloween with your furry friends!
Pumpkin Pleases at Juice It Up!
Juice It Up! is bringing back its popular Pumpkin Pleaser Smoothie this fall, and the raw juice bar and hand-crafted smoothie franchise is excited to introduce a healthier counterpart – the new Pumpkin Pleaser Smoothie Bowl. These treats really please because their health benefits won't leave you feeling weighed down with guilt. A guest favorite, the Pumpkin Pleaser Smoothie is made with a rich and creamy blend of soy milk, non-fat frozen yogurt, fresh bananas and pumpkin spice pie mix. The new Pumpkin Pleaser Bowl is made with a portion of the smoothie topped with organic pumpkin flax granola, graham cracker crumbs, whipped cream, cinnamon and graham cracker sticks. You can say "yes, please!" to these treats through December 2.
