A Gelato Franchise with a Taste of the Old Country and Today's Appeal
When I was a little boy, my Italian grandfather used to treat me to luscious homemade gelato. Later in life, as big ice cream fans, my wife Dawn and I knew that gelato's smooth texture, rich consistency, and delicious flavor could only be found in this old world delicacy.
After we found the secret family recipes for the family's delicious gelato hidden away in an old trunk, brought over years ago from Italy, we started making small batches for friends and family.
The demand grew and grew, until we finally decided to open our own store to sell the delicious and freshly made gelato! And that's how Funari's Italian Creamery® got started.
Now, after years of testing and tasting and learning all we could about gelato, and opening more stores, we are ready to bring our treasure to even more taste buds through our franchise program. It's a deliciously fun concept -- so join us!
Do I need prior experience in the ice cream or foodservice industry?
Experience in foodservice isn't necessary, but you should enjoy dealing with people and it doesn't hurt to have a passion for great gelato! (We also expect that you have the right amount of capital to invest in the franchise.) But regardless of your background and interests, we will show you how to run your own Funari's Italian Creamery®.
How much will the Funari's® franchise investment cost me?
The estimated required investment ranges from $169,000 to $290,000, including the franchise fee and training costs.
What will I receive as part of the Funari's® Franchise System?
You will complete training at one of our corporate stores, plus you will receive pre-opening help at your own location. You will have access to all our trademarks and proprietary recipes. And, we'll provide you with a copy of our confidential operations manual to help you run your business smoothly.
How much money can I make?
Your profitability will depend on a wide variety of factors, including the market, the competition, and most important, your ability to operate your business efficiently and properly. Funari's Franchising, LLC is committed to providing the tools, training, and support you'll need to help you run a deliciously fun and effective business.
