Development FAQs

Franchisees sign Store Development Agreements (SDA), which set out one or more geographic areas for the development of new Shops. Signing an SDA means you are responsible for developing the minimum number of shops specified under that SDA, which is determined by Baskin-Robbins as detailed in Item 12 of the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD).    

A single candidate must personally meet the financial qualifications. However, if you are partnering with others, Baskin-Robbins considers the overall financial strength of the business group.    

Non-traditional locations are typically located within another host establishment and come in many shapes and sizes depending on the host. Estimated cost ranges for initial investment vary with the venue and the host, and requests for non-traditional locations are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. More details are provided in Item 7 of the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD).
