“I bought a Baskin-Robbins ice cream franchise

because I wanted to own and operate an iconic brand known worldwide. Baskin-Robbins also fit my criteria of finding a fairly simple-to-operate franchise offering a fun experience to customers."

- Hugh Williams

"My dream was to be an entrepreneur.

With America being the Land of Opportunity, I decided to follow my passion. That’s what brought me here. I started my career as a crew member, and my husband was a baker for Dunkin’ Donuts. Now, over 400 Baskin-Robbins franchisees have gotten trained in my store. And I’m proud of it. My dream came true."

- Taru Patel

"My wife told me about how Baskin-Robbins

supports military veterans with attractive financial incentives. With more than 20 years of experience in the Army, I knew I had the management skills to run my own business, but most ice cream franchise opportunities were too cost prohibitive for me. After seeing the company’s veteran incentive program, it was obvious that Baskin-Robbins was the way to go."
