Franchise in California

Become an independent franchisee in Paradis supported by an ambitious and skillful franchisor.

We are the leading ice cream chain in Denmark and you can become part of our goal to become even bigger and better. Below you can read more about what becoming a franchisee in Paradis means and in which areas we are currently looking for expansion.

What is franchising:

Many businesses use franchising as a method to expand through a licensed relationship. The franchisor, in this case Paradis California LLC, develops and offers a business concept for you, the franchisee, who is then responsible for one or more stores in the chain. As a franchisee, you independently own and run your business, based on your experience from previous jobs as a leader and/or self-employment. Paradis contributes with an attractive financing plan which ensures the best possible foundation to launch your career.

Our training courses ensure that for you as a franchisee years of experience are an advantage but not a requirement to be an entrepreneurial talent. As a franchisee you are given access to a defined geographical area from which you operate your own Paradis store without competition from fellow Paradis stores.

Paradis

Paradis California LLC is making its proven trademark available. Paradis is responsible for developing and maintaining the trademark, as well as giving you advice on operating your business, financial management, marketing, HR, and communication. Branding and marketing are financed by the franchisees through a marketing fee to Paradis California LLC. Paradis California LLC also contributes to marketing and brand building. 

What you’ll get

Central Purchasing

All commodities, packaging, etc. are centrally purchased. This ensures the correct Paradis quality, as well as safer delivery and lower prices.
