By becoming a Gallone’s Ice Cream Parlour franchisee not only will you will be opening a great business; you will have the support and encouragement of a team who are there to help you through the challenges owning a business can present such as:


Project Manager - getting your parlour ready for opening will be made easier with help from our parlour fitting team to oversee the fit out of your parlour.

Dedicated Account Manager - available to help you and your team get the most out of your very own parlour.

Property - our dedicated agent is available to help source, negotiate and sort out the legal work for an ideal property.

Intensive training - carried out in our training centres and also in your parlour prior to opening.


There’s a lot of opportunity with a Gallone’s Ice Cream Parlour however you must ask yourself if working or owning a business in the hospitality sector is right for you.

The financial rewards are very good and seeing the smiling faces of your customers as they enjoy a Gallone’s ice cream cannot be bettered, but you must be sure that you and the team you employ, have the attitude needed to be a success in food and beverage.


If you can answer yes to these questions we would like to meet you to see if we are capable of working together as our next franchisee.

Do you:

Enjoy working with customers?

Want to have a business where fun and excitement are at its very core?
Want a business that is rewarding in more than just financial terms?
Have the capacity to fund the opening of a Gallone’s Ice Cream Parlour?

See yourself having the responsibility for a business open seven days a week, and hours that can be much longer than the standard job?


As with all businesses there is an initial financial commitment and a Gallone’s Ice Cream Parlour is no different.

What makes a franchise, and therefore this business, less of a risk is that you know that someone else has already taken the steps to check out what does and doesn't work and what are the rights and wrongs in running a successful parlour.

We have funding packages available with HSBC, Lloyd's and Franchise Finance for up to %70 of costs. Depending on the size of the property you are considering to open your parlour in, you should be budgeting a figure between £130,000 - £180,000. This figure will provide you with:


A ten-year Franchise Agreement

Your initial training

The shop fitting to fit out your parlour and ice cream factory

All your equipment such as coffee machine, dishwasher, fridges and freezers, display cabinets and china

An EPOS (till) system and software

The opening stock
