About Ben and Jerry’s

Ben & Jerry's is more than just an Ice Cream company and all franchisees are encouraged to share in Ben & Jerry's 3 part mission statement. This underlying philosophy sees us place equal weight on our Product, Economic and Social missions. This mission statement has been core to the Ben & Jerry's business from the beginning- a revolutionary development at the time, and highly relevant for today's consumer environment.

This is a truly unique opportunity to join an international brand and own your own part of Ben & Jerry's. We have more than 500 scoop shops globally, with 30 store across Australia and New Zealand.

The Ben and Jerry’s Story

Ben & Jerry's was founded by Ben and Jerry in 1978 in Vermont USA. After a number of failed university attempts, the pair enrolled in a $5 ice cream making course (by correspondence). The first Ben & Jerry's scoop shop opened in an old gas station in Burlington Vermont - the rest as they say is history. Ben & Jerry's came ‘Down Udder’ in 2009
