Owners are finally retiring due to ill health after 13 years of happy ownership of this nicest location in town that gives you traffic not only for retail sales at the store but situated beautifully in the affluent community of San Diego to capture outside sales doing events, fund raisers, delivery, catering, and more.

Lots of parking, great visibility and anchored by Vons Supermarket gives you plenty of traffic count all year around.

It also has on its menu Sundaes and Signature Creations, Pre-packs and Party Packs, Cakes for all occasions, Drinks of your choice shakes, smoothies, frappes, Frozen Yogurt and sorbet and take outs. Menu gives you wide flexibility to serve all age groups. The franchise support system enables you to get upfront training before you take store possession and an ongoing help when needed by local area representative backed by strong parent company that own several different franchise brands.
This is the last store for the owner that is well-kept and handled with care and passion. They love their customers and so very passionate about customer service kind of down to earth and so much organized. It is rare opportunity to find a store being sold by such owners who we know shall transition to the new owners with all the care and training. Sellers books and records are impeccable and since it is a franchise you will have full transparency and ease to carry out your due diligence. You need not be experienced as long as you are financially able to qualify for the purchase. You will enjoy the ownership experience when you find a good store like this one that is profitable year over year and with little extra effort can generate a lot more reward for you. Fees add.'l.
