You know the feeling that baseball season brings? The temperature starts to rise, the grass is turning greener, and the scent of hot dogs and peanuts fills the air. Well, baseball season has always reminded me of one thing, the perfect treat to cool you off in the heat of a summer baseball game. That’s right, Dippin’ Dots!
As a kid, the best part about attending a baseball game was downing the ice cream of the future. The small, sphere-shaped, tasty ice cream just melts in your mouth on a hot summer day. It may seem like a strange treat to some, but to others, the Dippin’ Dots creators took a wonderful dessert and made it even better!

Joining the Franchise
If you’d like to open your own Dippin’ Dots franchise, it would be wise to save up before doing so. The initial franchise fee is $15,000 in the United States, though this varies. Also, it is a requirement that the applicant has five years of experience within the food industry.
There are three different types of venues offered within the Dippin Dots franchise team: product placement, event, and stationary location venues. The Franchise Disclosure Document must be reviewed upon opening a venue along with specific qualifications. Sales, cost, income, and profit vary by the type of venue and location of each franchise.
