Franchising WITH Churn

Become your own boss and open a Churn cafe in your neighborhood.

Do you ever dream of opening your own ice cream store? Are you business savvy and ambitious? Do you love the smell of fresh coffee in the morning?

If so, you may be a good fit for franchising with Churn. We are currently looking for:

  • Professionals interested in a career change

  • Natural leaders who love a challenge

  • Mentors excited about training a team of entry-level staff and employees with career gaps

  • Creative, ambitious, compassionate, and self-disciplined individuals

  • Confident individuals who are able to handle rejection

When a guest walks into Churn, they are greeted with the smell of freshly roasted coffee. Our smiling staff and artistically painted interior welcome them, and they know they are in for something sweet. 

They can sample any of the available ice cream flavors, or ask one of our team members whether they should get an affogato or latte. Whatever their order, our guests keep coming back time and time again.
