Baskin-Robbins is offering Phoenix and Tucson residents the exclusive scoop on how to own their very own Baskin-Robbins franchise. With a domestic footprint of nearly 2,700 locations, Baskin-Robbins is now seeking franchisee candidates in Phoenix and Tucson to be part of a growth campaign designed to increase its U.S. presence over time.

Baskin-Robbins executives will be in town to host a franchise opportunities seminar on June 24 at 9 a.m. at the Phoenix Airport Marriott to share the benefits of owning a Baskin-Robbins shop. To register for the event and learn more, log on to http://www.baskinrobbins.com/FranchiseOpportunities/ or call (781) 737-3212.

"Baskin-Robbins has been providing quality ice cream products for more than 60 years and we're excited to expand our footprint in Phoenix and Tucson," says Grant Benson, CFE, vice president of franchising and market planning, Dunkin' Brands, Inc. "We're looking for individuals to join our team and spread the fun and unique flavors of America's Favorite Ice Cream Shop in Phoenix and Tucson and invite interested parties to attend our seminar on June 24, to learn how to open a Baskin-Robbins in your community."

To drive its expansion efforts, Baskin-Robbins offers several flexible real estate design options at varying investment levels. These concepts -stand-alone and express/kiosk - provide consumers with a range of Baskin-Robbins menu items from hard scooped ice cream and cakes to soft-serve and frozen beverages. Ideally, franchisees should possess a minimum net worth of $250,000 and liquid assets of at least $125,000 but financial qualifications will vary based on the opportunity available by market.

"Additional Baskin-Robbins stores will satisfy a growing demand in Phoenix and Tucson for high-quality ice cream, specialty frozen desserts, and beverages," Benson says. "For generations, Baskin-Robbins has become the brand of choice for consumers and has consistently delighted them with our irresistible flavors and treats. We look forward to having an even larger presence in the Phoenix and Tucson communities."
