Jack the Dipper Dips into Franchise Marketplace with New Ice Cream Franchise

Bryson City, NC  (  Jack the Dipper is dipping into the franchise marketplace, officially launching its franchise opportunity this month.

The company, which boasts a menu dripping with fan favorite sweet treats such as premium hand-dipped ice cream, made-to-order warm waffle cones and bowls, shakes, malts, sundaes and splits, is seeking to expand throughout the Southeastern US, including North Carolina, Georgia, South Carolina, and Florida.

Michael Martone, Jack the Dipper’s CEO and COO, expressed excitement over the step to launch sales, a decision that made sense for the brand’s growth trajectory. The company currently has six Jack the Dipper locations across Western North Carolina and one in Central Florida.

“It seemed the next logical step to develop our franchise model. We believe it provides us the growth we’d like to achieve faster than if we opened corporate stores,” he said. “I am very excited to finally achieve this goal. This has been a goal of ours since we purchased Jack the Dipper with only two locations almost 5 years ago.”

Franchisees gain everything they need to launch, operate, and sustain their business, said Martone. Marketing, recipes, store layouts, ongoing operational support, and training are all included in each franchise agreement.

“We have a proven brand that has been a staple here in North Carolina since 1976. The process we have created is easy to follow…we have been following it with great success for over 40 years,” Martone stated. “Additionally, the barrier to entry is fairly low in comparison to other franchise opportunities which equates to a faster ROI.”

Jack the Dipper welcomes franchise buyers to its franchise website,, to learn more details about ownership.
