Founder and owner Sally Newell launched Simply Ice Cream in 2005 and it is now a multi-award winning luxury brand. The ice cream is handmade in small batches in the heart of Kent using only the best and natural ingredients, no additives, preservatives, powders or syrups are used in the manufacturing process.

The UK ice cream market is worth an estimated £1.1 billion per year, and is continuing to grow, and indulgent luxury brands like Simply Ice Cream are at the forefront of the market. Natural ingredients and product innovation have really been at the heart of the brand’s growth over the last few years, with high street supermarket Waitrose being one of the brand’s customers. We are now looking to grow the brand throughout the UK through a franchise network.

As a franchisee you will be selling into a large range of retail and entertainment outlets including farm shops, delis, independent chains, food service outlets such as ice cream parlours, pubs, restaurants, theatres, cinemas and many more. You will also have the opportunity to sell direct to consumers through the website and to attend events such as farmers markets, festivals, food fairs etc. to maximise earnings.

Finance is usually the barrier to entry in any new business but the Government is very keen to support  quality businesses where they know the growth model is proven.

Working with one of the leading start up loans consultancy firms your application will be fast tracked with the majority of the work done for you. This is completely free of charge and we have a 100% success rate with current applications. 

We are launching the Simply Ice Cream franchise for a short period at a reduced cost of £15,000 to the first five franchisees that join us. You will need working capital of approximately £8,000 for refrigerated equipment. The franchise package includes:
