Captain Ice Cream from ABC’s The Shark Tank is now offering franchises.

More info from their press release is after the jump.

The Captain Ice Cream Franchise: “Ice Cream on 3-Wheels to Go Anywhere the Business Is.”

Captain Ice Cream is a taking the mobile novelty ice cream franchise business to an entirely new level with his stunning Ice Cream Mopeds. Captain Ice Cream’s mission is to provide franchisees with an inexpensive and well-designed solution to allow them to go anywhere the business is and to return with money, money, money.


Now, you too, can inexpensively own the best and most efficient mobile ice cream vending machine ever – a Captain Ice Cream Ice Cream Moped – and reap big financial rewards. Time after time! Year after year!

Because of the unique size of Captain Ice Cream’s Ice Cream Moped, plus the fact that it is street legal in all 50 states and will pass the strictest of health department requirements, means a Captain Ice Cream franchisee can attend trade shows, farmer’s markets and street fairs by fitting nicely into a standard 10’x10’ booth space – you can’t do that with a smelly old ice cream truck.

Plus, since there is no setup, you just ride in, pop up your umbrella and start selling. When the event is over, wave to the other vendors as you ride away as they begin to tear down their displays and pack them into their pickup trucks for the next hour.

Go deep into parks, ride on bicycle paths and on boardwalks (please check your local laws first). Be a part of the action — not in an expensive storefront waiting for customers who never arrive.

Potential customers will stop dead-in-their-tracks when they see your Captain Ice Cream Ice Cream Moped. From there, it’s an easy sale.


Captain Ice Cream offers complete turnkey franchises at a fraction of typical food industry business costs. With no long-term store leases or building costs, you are in business immediately. And you can instantly ride to where the customers are.
