Cold Stone Creamery Ready For The Steel Death Slab?

Last night while watching CNBC I came across a show called “Behind The Counter – The Untold Story of Franchising”. This peaked my attention because I’m not a huge fan of franchises. They talked about 3 different franchises. Camp Bow Wow which is doggy daycare, 5 Guys Burgers and Fries, and Cold Stone Creamery. They praised Camp Bow Wow and 5 Guys Burgers and Fries, but Cold Stone Creamery got ripped a new a new one. A former franchise owner went on camera breaking a contract agreement and made some pretty bad clams against Cold Stone. He said that Cold Stone requires you to buy a whole bunch of expensive equipment. He said that most of the equipment was not needed to run the operation, and on top of that you have to buy the equipment from a business that Cold Stone owns. Another claim he made was that you are required to be a “leassee” of your location. Obviously you will be unless you own the property. But there’s a big catch. You lease the property from Cold Stone. But the bigger catch is that you have to pay Cold Stone fees for this. But wait, there’s more! Cold Stone is not even on the lease!!! So you pretty much pay a bunch of money to Cold Stone for nothing. According to the show, this fee is in the ballpark of $36,000. OUCH!! Anyway this guy going on and on about how horrible Cold Stone Creamery is. Top Top it off, he made the claim that you CAN’T make money owning a Cold Stone Creamery. But wait, there’s more!! The guy making these clain owned the 2nd highest grossing Cold Stone Creamery in the United States. think about that. He has the 2nd highest grossing store in the US and he said he had to shut it down because he could not make money and had to close because Cold Stone was milking him out of business with all their fees. That’s not good. If what he says is true, Cold Stone Creamery’s day are numbered. Read more...
