Learn About Carvel Ice Cream Franchises
Get the Scoop!
In 1934, Tom Carvel borrowed $15 from his future wife Agnes, filled a battered
vending truck with ice cream, and drove off in search of the American dream. His
truck broke down in Hartsdale, NY, but the dream never faltered. On that very
site, Tom Carvel started selling his ice cream which would one day become New
York City's number one ice cream brand and would create a cult-like following
that has existed for over 70 years. Today, you are pursuing your own American
dream, and we welcome the opportunity to share the many reasons why you should
consider a Carvel franchise.
Our vision is simple. We want to be a national player in the ice cream industry,
an innovator in franchising and a "best in class" employer. This is what gets us
up in the morning.
At Carvel, we believe in promoting Carvel through multiple types of venues. Our
unique concepts allow our franchisees to offer our delicious ice cream products
in a wide range of locations and opportunities.
The time is right and the reasons plentiful for you to get in on the ground
floor of a rapidly growing company. Carvel currently operates over 500
franchised and food service locations, and is part of FOCUS Brands Inc, owner of
Carvel, Cinnabon and certain international markets of Seattle's Best Coffee.
Together, we can create memories - for you, for your family, and most
importantly for your customers. Read on to learn the many reasons why Carvel can
help you realize your American dream, and create memories that will last a
