Foster’s Freeze: the Best Ice Cream Business for Sale

If you’re in the market for an ice cream franchise, Foster’s Freeze is a no-brainer option with our iconic look and nostalgic appeal. What would America be without the classic burger joint? Indulging in a savory hamburger, hot salty fries and soft-serve ice cream is a mouthwatering experience not to be missed.

70  Years  of  Sunshine  &  Happiness

In  1946,  George  Foster  began  selling  his  proprietary  soft-serve  ice  cream  in  Inglewood,  California.

Since then, Fosters Freeze has become synonymous with easy-breezy West Coast culture, making its mark on the pop-culture scene and serving as a timeless backdrop for everything associated with classic, California-style cool.

So what makes Foster’s Freeze the best fast food franchise out there?

It’s easy to see why we’re the best fast food franchise around.
