Fosters Freeze INFO

About Fosters Freeze

Fosters Freeze has been a California tradition since the mid-1940's. The Fosters story begins in 1946 when George Foster opened the first Fosters Freeze in Inglewood, California, where he introduced the soft serve cone and a line of soft serve desserts. The unique product became so popular that he opened a chain of restaurants. As California grew, so did the Fosters Freeze concept, with made-to-order hamburgers, fries and other food items added to the menu. Fosters Freeze truly could be described as California's first fast-food chain.

The ice cream and burger franchise grew to more than 300 locations across the West Coast at its height and has been a fan favorite for generations.

Why Fosters Freeze

To many people, the name Fosters Freeze conjures up sepia-toned memories of after-school soft-serve or Little League celebrations. The Fosters Freeze brand represents California-style positivity. Over the years, Fosters Freeze has built a loyal customer base as a local California burger-and-shake restaurant that is known for amazing made-with-real-milk soft serve ice cream.

The Fosters Freeze team is an authentic group of people with unwavering cheerfulness and wholesomeness who are working hard to make the world a better place for everyone — even if it's just for a moment. The Fosters Freeze concept thrives on the belief that simple pleasures are the key to happiness.

Meet the Team Behind Fosters Freeze

Brothers Neal and Nimesh Dahya built a franchisee empire with some of the biggest names in foodservice. The Dahyas have owned, consulted for or invested in more than 180 restaurant franchise locations for brands including Applebee’s, IHOP, Burger King, Pizza Hut and TGI Fridays. It’s safe to say the career franchisees, now 36 and 34, respectively, have learned a thing or two about what makes for a successful restaurant franchise. Now, the Dahyas are applying their expertise and passion for franchising to the franchisor side, focusing on reigniting growth for the beloved but previously neglected Fosters Freeze franchise.

While the brand’s corporate team had done little to encourage growth, and the franchise system languished, industry veterans Neal and Nimesh purchased the franchise just five years ago, and already the brand is showing impressive growth. With 66 restaurants currently open for business, sales across the system have increased every year since the brothers arrived — including a whopping 20% year-over-year jump from 2019 to 2020, on top of five previous years of growth.

It’s little wonder why Neal and Nimesh’s strategy to revive Fosters Freeze prioritizes franchisee support. The brothers’ extensive and fruitful career as franchisees taught them that the success of any franchise system depends on the success of its owners. To support franchisees and promote growth, the Dahyas have implemented a number of dramatic improvements, including everything from reducing food costs to introducing a beautiful new store design.

How Fosters Freeze Differentiates Itself as a Franchise Opportunity

From site selection to restaurant design and equipment ordering to field support business advice, the corporate team helps franchisees create a successful business and maximize the return on their investment. Franchisees go through a four-week training for senior management to get them up to speed and kick-start their business with all the knowledge needed to run a Fosters Freeze restaurant, including hiring, team training systems and technology. The team also supports all marketing initiatives with new product innovation, promotional initiatives, brand partnerships, high-quality advertising and local store activities through a dedicated brand guardian and marketing team.

Franchise owners also benefit from 70 years of the brand’s operating experience, which has resulted in a streamlined operational model. The flagship model is the ideal destination restaurant format that can be replicated in multiple locations. The offer also includes the option of in-line units and walk-up kiosks, allowing franchisees to take advantage of a wide range of real-estate opportunities. The Fosters Freeze corporate team provides the sales information franchisees need in a dashboard that is easy to use, empowering them to make decisions backed up by relevant data. The brand’s established supply chain also creates quality control and price stability, leaving franchisees with the security and foresight to plan ahead and grow their business.

Why is now the time to invest?

Even 2020’s unique challenges for the restaurant industry haven’t slowed Fosters Freeze’s growth under the Dahyas’ watch. Thanks to a flexible, small-footprint store model with walk-up windows perfect for low-contact take-out, Fosters Freeze stores were able to continue serving customers while other restaurants were closed for social distancing. 

Since taking over, Neal and Nimesh have been listening to feedback from the brand’s current franchisees, tightening up the franchise’s operational model and rolling out new design touches, including updated signage. By reinvesting in Fosters Freeze as a franchise, and not just a chain of independent businesses, the Dahyas have already brought new life into a system that franchisees say just needed a little TLC.

Now, Fosters Freeze is preparing to leverage its revived franchise model for expansive growth. Currently, the brand has its sights set on expanding across the United States, particularly in Arizona and Nevada, in order to build on the loyal following and awareness that it has established across California.

The Investment and How Much Can I Make?

According to the brand’s 2020 FDD and Item 19, the average gross sales for the eight stand-alone restaurants with drive-thru service was $870,728 for 2019. When it comes to post-COVID sales, the average gross sales for the eight stand-alone restaurants with drive-thru service was $107,144 for the month of June 2020, up from $86,740 for the same month of 2019.

The initial investment to begin operation of a single, stand-alone Fosters Freeze restaurant ranges from $611,500 and $1,009,000. The total investment necessary to begin operation of a single confections restaurant is $178,000 to $331,500. The initial investment needed to open a single co-located restaurant is $329,500 to $658,500.
