Marble Slab has quickly expanded beyond its original Southeastern presence and become a fast-growing franchise. It is ranked in Entrepreneur Magazine's Franchise 500 (#93), Fastest-Growing Franchises (#72) and America's Top Global Franchises (#75) Don’t miss out on this excellent investment opportunity
Health issues – both negative (obesity, diabetes) and positive (natural, organic) have continued to generate new products Consumers crave indulging in richness and luxury Carry super-premium image to healthier segments
Market Challenges Trade-offs exist where popularity of new product detracts from sales of older one Ice cream and frozen novelty market has nearly completely penetrated among kids Ice cream and frozen novelty market has near penetration amongst kids Mature ice cream segment Continuously develop products that consumers seek and react to call for healthier choice.
In preparing estimates, we obtained actual sales figures for similar establishments located in Canada and the United States. In a sample of 68 stores, the range of actual sales was between a low of $258,711 to a high of $867,770. Corporate profit and loss statements obtained from similar establishments to assess whether our estimates were reasonable
Marble slab is easily imitable Marble slab does not yet have traction in Saskatoon; brand goodwill is trivial Flexibility to run the business how you choose Ability to change store layout Can offer products not offered by Marble Slab Works in other cities Why go Independent? Business model of franchise is easily imitable Marble slab does not yet have traction in Saskatoon so the value of goodwill associated with the name is not known Flexibility to run the business how you choose Ability to change store layout to improve customer flow Can set prices Can offer products not offered by Marble Slab but competitive with local market (eg Sundays, Floats, etc) Successful model as seen in Vancouver – namely Dolce Amore and Casa de Gelato, two local stores that are incredibly successful. Ditto for Mondo gelato. May be worth looking into how much startup and design costs would actually be as these could be commensurate with initial franchise fee Potential for franchising the brand if it becomes popular! (Taco del Mar) Could just buy dairyland ice cream and sell
The royalty fee as franchisee is equal to 6% of gross sales – Payable weekly An advertising fee is also assessed that is equal to 2% of gross sales Initial price for the standard seven ounce serving of ice cream will be $4.95 Initial price for ice cream cake will be $30.95 Expected real growth Ice Cream Sales – 5% in yr 1 and 3% subsequently Ice Cream Cake Sales – 5% in yr 1 and subsequently Expected rate of inflation = 3%
