Could you be the new ice cream master?


What’s your favourite type of ice cream? Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry, maybe something different like Caramel?

Townsville could have all that and more, with the team behind Ben & Jerry’s, one of the world’s biggest and best ice cream manufacturers, saying that they’re looking at expanding into our city!

They’ve put the call out for a franchisee for their Townsville store, valued at $450,000 and you get to keep 6% of all net royalties. Plus I’m assuming free ice cream!

Ben & Jerry's was founded in 1978 in Vermont USA. After a number of failed university attempts, Ben & Jerry enrolled in a $5 ice cream making course, then opened their first scoop shop in an old gas station in Burlington Vermont.

If you’re looking at getting involved in this cool venture, you can express your interest at their business advertisement here.
