What does it mean to be a Ben & Jerry's franchisee? It means you are a totally-devoted, head-over-heels Ben & Jerry's nut. You live for euphoric super-premium ice cream. You live for serving customers. And you live for giving back to the community.
Being a Ben & Jerry's franchisee is about rolling up your sleeves and getting your hands dirty. It's working nights and weekends and loving it. It's about teaching teenagers how to be good employees, knowing some will drive you crazy and others will be friends for life. It's crafting marketing plans, scooping at special events, stumping for catering accounts, poring over P&L's ...and scrubbing the bathroom toilets.
Ben & Jerry's strives to sustain a franchise network where teamwork, individuality and diversity are valued, respected and encouraged. This is not just a business, it's a lifestyle. It's definitely not for everyone, but for some folks, they wouldn't have it any other way.
