President Greg Sausaman Boasts, “You will get 100% return on your investment in year one”
In an unprecedented move, Topper’s Creamery has announced a guarantee for new franchisees of Topper’s Creamery Express. In making the announcement, Chairman and Co-Founder Wade Oney said, “We guarantee you will get 100% return on your investment in year one.”
Oney, a former Chief Operating Officer for Papa John’s Pizza, added, “How many franchisors do that (issue a guarantee)?”
Also the owner of more than 50 Papa John’s locations (as well as eight Qdoba locations), Oney added that Topper’s Creamery brings the franchisee perspective to this pledge, despite actually being the franchisor.
The guarantee by Topper’s Creamery is that the operator will make at least $5,000 in profit in year one. There is a $5,000 franchise fee in their first year; thus, a 100% return on investment.
The guarantee essentially indicates that there is no risk to add a Topper’s Creamery Express. Today’s announcement also provides continued momentum for the trail that Topper’s Creamery is blazing; adding Topper’s Creamery Express units in multiple retail options including large resorts/hotels, shopping malls, large retail centers, large office/business centers, college campuses, theme parks, turnpikes, stadiums, and other high foot traffic venues.
“It is a new day,” says Topper’s Creamery President/CEO Greg Sausaman. He quotes Henry Ford, “If I asked people what they wanted, they would have said ‘faster horses’.”
Sausaman says, “We have engineered adding a Topper’s Creamery Express in as small as four linear feet. Topper’s Creamery Express is a paradigm shift. We made adding the ‘Best Soft Serve Ice Cream on the Planet’ simple and lucrative for the operator. And we back it up with our guarantee.”
With its own proprietary recipe for its brand of soft serve ice cream, Topper’s Creamery currently has free-standing locations as well as non-traditional locations in hotels and colleges spanning central Florida from coast to coast. The full list of locations is available on the company’s website (noted below).
