Franchise in California

Become an independent franchisetaker in Paradis located in California or Denmark, supported by ambitious and skilful franchisegivers.

We are the leading ice-cream chain in Denmark, and you can become part of our goal to become even broader and better. Below you can read more about what becoming a franchiser in Paradis means, and which areas we are currently looking to expand.

What is franchising?

Many businessnes use franchising as a method to expand through a licensed relationship. The franchisegiver, in this case Paradis Danmark A/S, develops and offers a business concept for you, the franchisetaker, who is then responsible for one or more stores in the chain. As a franchisetaker, 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 fundament to launch your career from.

Our training courses ensure that you, as a franchisetaker do not necessarily need years of experience in advance, but they prepare you to be an entrepreneurial talent. Years of experience are therefore an advantage, but not a requirement.  As a franchisetaker you are given acess to a defined geographical area, from where you can run your own Paradis store, with no competition from other Paradis stores.

Paradis

Paradis Danmark A/S 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.  The national branding and communication are financed by franchisetakers through contributions to Paradis A/S.
