Incredible Ice Cream Master Franchise.


Advert ref: 2096SH


The Incredible Ice Cream Company was established in 2007 from a garage, when a theatrical set designer created the first bar on a hunch that ice cream could be sold much more theatrically and entertainingly than was being done by vans and trikes.

The result was the first 3-meter-long fibreglass bar which was launched into the events industry with considerable success. First year turnover was over £100,000!

The company was bought in 2015 by the present owners and has been expanded ambitiously, serving public and private events throughout the UK, wowing children and adults alike with its show-stopping presence and delicious products.

In 2019 it was decided to franchise the operation so that more bars could appear at more events and more people could reap the benefits of earning a very good return from their Incredible Ice Cream franchise. The first three franchisees were recruited before the world closed down - thanks to Covid 19. 

However lockdown time wasn’t wasted and the owners spent that time designing and developing a sister model to the 3-metre static Incredible Ice Cream Bar and the new gorgeous motorised and mobile Incredible Ice Cream Bar was launched in June 2021. 
There are also detailed plans in place for a Tabletop Lite Bar following a period of research that has shown there to be a significant potential market and a prototype build is ready to go.

So in essence the brand has been created and is ready to be developed in the rights hands.

Future development will obviously involve developing the number of franchisees, which will also increase the regular revenue stream. It will also probably include permanent placements at tourist attractions, soft play centres, transport hubs, motorway services and more along with further developments in the events market, particularly private parties, corporate events and public cash events. Experience so far has proven that there is all-year-round income potential from outdoor events in spring/summer and indoor in the autumn/winter period.

Current asset value is in excess of £100k and includes some of the vending equipment along with the drivetrains for four additional mobile bars.

Here are some facts:

60% of adults eat ice cream at least once a week!

95% of people say they eat ice cream regularly in the spring and summer.

In 2019, more than 500 million litres of ice cream were consumed in the UK.

That’s 100 million litres more than the Italians!

The business is currently operating from its Oxfordshire base, but it could literally operate from any location.

Reason For Selling:
There are two directors, one of whom is now planning for retirement and the other has additional non-related businesses that preclude them from spending the time required to develop this franchise any further.
