Bruster's Real Ice Cream Franchise Opportunity

Bruce Reed founded Bruster's® Real Ice Cream in 1989. His passion for extraordinary ice cream and stellar customer service guaranteed his success and we are now approaching 200 units open in 18 states, and counting! This is the fresh opportunity you've been looking for.

Bruster's Real Ice CreamThough much has changed since the beginning of Bruster's®, we still adhere to the guiding principles that have made us the revered brand we are today. Bruster's® still uses fresh, real ingredients in our famous ice creams. All of our desserts (cakes, pies and waffle cones) and our ice creams are made right in the store where they are served. As a franchisee you can select up to 37 flavors to serve daily from close to 150 recipes! Our simple retail model distinguishes us from many franchises by focusing on serving ice cream and related products filled with giant chunks of real fruit, candies, cookies, nuts and other delicious mix-ins.

Bruce started serving ice cream for one reason: to make his customers happy! That is still the reason Bruster's® is serving ice cream today.
