Bruster’s Real Ice Cream FDD – Franchise Information, Costs and Fees
Type of Business
Bruster’s real ice Cream franchises are retail ice cream stores that offer premium ice cream, sherbet, frozen yogurt, Italian ices and related products. The products are made fresh on site every day.
Bruster’s Limited Partnership was organized as a Pennsylvania limited partnership on March 17, 1993. Their principal address is 730 Mulberry Street, Bridgewater PA 15009. They have offered franchises since April 1993.
The total investment necessary to begin operation of a Bruster’s franchised business is between $318,000 and $2,236,500. This includes between $19,401 and $36,901 that must be paid to the franchisor or its affiliates. The franchisor will discount the initial franchise fee by 50% for US veterans. They also offer a 50% discount on the initial fee for franchisees in good standing that sign a franchise agreement for an additional franchised store.
If you wish to sign a development agreement, then the total investment needed to begin operation would be multiplied by the number of units that you agree to open, after applying the discounted initial franchise fee. (As an example, for a 3-unit development agreement, the total investment would be $954,000 to $2,516,500, which includes $54,401 to $71,901 that must be paid to the franchisor or an affiliate.)
