Popular Ice Cream Shop Opening in Georgetown
It’s the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty shops.
And its Greater Toronto Area expansion is growing.
Baskin-Robbins is opening a new Georgetown location, the company announced on Feb. 21.
“After experiencing significant growth with our Baskin-Robbins ice cream shops in Brampton, we knew it was time to expand our portfolio with an additional location,” said Baskin-Robbins franchisee Durgesh Sikka, who currently owns a Brampton location.
“We’re looking forward to bringing the brand’s 31 flavors to the local community in greater Toronto.”
Construction is slated to begin in 2019 and the shop will open next year.
There are currently more than 80 Baskin-Robbins locations throughout the GTA.
“Our secret to continued growth includes passionate franchisees who provide a high-level of customer service to our guests every day, and we are thrilled that these franchisees will be expanding our brand further in the Toronto area,” said Grant Benson, CFE, vice president of global franchising and business development, Dunkin’ Brands.
“Our hard-working and dedicated franchisees bring our brand, products and promotions to life each and every day and have been essential to our growth, which has solidified our position as a leader in the quick service and ice cream sector.”
Baskin-Robbins was founded in 1945 by two ice cream enthusiasts whose passion led to the creation of more than 1,300 ice cream flavors and a wide variety of delicious treats.
It’s headquartered in Canton, Massachusetts and has 7,900 retail shops in 53 countries.
