Unique Ice Cream Retail Franchise


Advert ref: 2045SH


What better way to work for yourself than in the high-margin world of sunshine and ice cream?
With margins of up to 200%, an Incredible Ice Cream franchise is a great way to get your business up and running. With events all year around, from weddings to street fairs, small festivals, private and corporate parties, the party never stops from January to December.


They were born in 2007 when an events organiser and theatre designer realised that there was an opportunity to sell ice cream in a much more entertaining and theatrical way than was being done in vans and trikes. 

Working in his garage in his spare time, he designed and built a prototype 3-metre fibreglass bar. He launched it into the events industry and it was an instant success. His first year’s turnover was over £100,000! He continued to have great success and successfully sold the company in 2015. 

Since then Incredible Ice Cream Bars have appeared at public and private events throughout the UK. 

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!


You can choose whether to have one of our show-stealing full-size bars, or the new super-cute ultra-mobile bar. Whichever you choose you’ll be serving the best ice cream your customers have ever tasted! 

The full-size bar is a 3-metre long show-stopper! Wherever it goes, the crowds gather because they’ve never seen anything quite like it. Suitable for events where access is good, it can be setup in less than an hour but does require a bit of muscle! 

Our brand new mobile bar is half the size and electrically driven, meaning it can power itself around a venue following the crowds! Easily handled by a single operator, the diminutive size doesn’t detract from its showbizability, lighting up at night and pleasing the crowds. 

Whichever bar is at the event, the customer’s experience is theatrical as they get to customise their ice cream in a journey down the bar.That journey starts at the ice cream machine on the left where they choose to have their ice cream in a cone or a cup. Then they get to the sauce fountains, choosing their favourite flavour. Next come the sprinkles – bubblegum, hundreds & thousands, caramel crunch or popping candy being some of the most popular choices, before finally they get to add a Cadbury’s Flake, grab a napkin and head off to salivate and enjoy their Incredible Ice Cream.


Every day of the year there are thousands of events around the country suitable for Incredible Ice Cream.
Birthdays, weddings, corporate events, fairs, street pitches, markets, tourist attractions, holiday resorts, shopping malls and soft-play centres are just some of the natural all-year-round habitats for an Incredible Ice Cream bar.

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!
