Franchise Info

haagen dazs franchise

Häagen-Dazs is recognized worldwide for exceptional and luxurious ice cream.

Häagen-Dazs was born in an extraordinary kitchen by Reuben Mattus, our founder in 1961. Today, we invite customers to more than 800 extraordinary shops around the world, where they can taste over 24 premium flavours in a setting as extraordinary as our ice cream itself.

Our ice creams are uniquely made in Arras, France, using a simple recipe that includes fresh cream, skim milk, fresh egg yolks, sugar and natural flavours (no artificial colours or flavours). We also offer a selection of gourmet pastries, crepes and waffles for a more varied and less seasonal offer.

We have been franchising since 1976 and we have franchisees that are still with us today after 25 years. When you join us as a Häagen-Dazs franchisee, we are committed to you.
