Ice Cream & Gelato Store Franchises in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Ice Cream & Gelato Store Franchises

As a result of growth in disposable income and steady per capita dairy consumption, ice cream and gelato franchises have experienced growth over the five years to 2018. Increasing health consciousness in the United States has been the greatest threat to demand for ice cream and gelato. As health concerns have grown, consumers have begun choosing healthier desserts over ice cream and gelato. Over the five years to 2023, consumers' eating habits are expected to continue trending toward more healthy snacks and desserts. As more consumers substitute ice cream and gelato with healthier frozen yogurt products, the Ice Cream and Gelato Store Franchises industry will experience increasing external competition for revenue. Therefore, demand for ice cream and gelato is expected to experience limited growth.

Industry operators primarily serve ice cream or gelato. Corporate-owned establishments and frozen yogurt stores are not included in this industry. Reports in IBISWorld’s Business Franchise collection focus solely on the operation of franchised outlets and exclude nonfranchise data. These reports also show the total number of franchise outlets, franchise revenue and the average profit margin earned by franchisees. These reports also highlight the largest franchisors by market share.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
