Become a Partner

We are highly selective when it comes to granting the rights to develop the Cold Stone Creamery® brand internationally. We seek something truly exceptional in our partners abroad - they must not only possess the requisite business acumen, managerial skills, leadership, resources and experience, but also they must be passionate lovers of our ice cream!

What We Look For In Our International Partners

Our international partners are some of the most experienced restaurant operators and retailers in the world. Combining our know-how in creating the Ultimate Ice Cream Experience® with our partner's unique knowledge of its country's culture and retail community creates the best recipe for success!

We are not looking for individual store owners. We are looking for companies with experienced management that can launch and develop the Cold Stone Creamery® brand within their country. We partner with established companies that share our passion for our brand, success, aggressive growth, our extreme commitment to quality and our commitment to serving our customers.

Ideal international candidates possess the following qualities:

  • Currently involved in Food & Beverage, retail, or another service related business

  • Currently have several stores operating (multiple concepts a plus)

  • Must possess a thorough knowledge of the marketplace and have the ability to bring in a proven management team

  • Fully understand import and export regulations for your country

  • Have a minimum of $2,000,000 USD working capital for this project
