Ben & Jerry’s is expanding their current Scoop Shop franchise network in Australia and New Zealand with a heavy focus on sites that are seen as high priority areas.
About the Opportunity
The Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shop franchise is an all-inclusive business opportunity.
Nearly 4 decades after the original Ben & Jerry’s scoop shop opened, our euphoric brand is known globally for rich, delicious ice cream flavours crammed with chunks and swirls of different flavours.
Our brand is fresh, fun and exciting, and is actively involved in activism and local community projects around the world.
In Australia, the scoop shop concept was developed in 2010. We then crossed the ditch opening our first New Zealand scoop shop in 2015, we now have over 30 stores across ANZ.
Ben & Jerry’s is on a mission to find carefully selected candidates who are passionate about global issues and believe in their ability to change the world, one scoop at a time.
Several exclusive scoop shop opportunities are available for hard-working owner operators in some of the most premium, high traffic locations in Australia and New Zealand.
Key elements of the Ben & Jerry’s franchise opportunity:
- Locations are limited
- Training is flexible (we can adapt to suit your level and ability)
- We do everything for a purpose and always think about our global impact

Ben & Jerry’s is an active and very supportive franchise business offering endless support and assistance for Scoop Shop owners. The primary focus is preserving brand consistency across the network and there are several accountability structures in place to assist franchisees, from initial establishment right up to ongoing operational coaching.
