Franchised Food Company acquires gelato chain, Trampoline.

The company, which already encompasses Cold Rock Ice Creamery, Pretzel World, Nutshack and Mr Whippy brands, adds this popular brand to its winning franchise line-up, complementing the feel-good ethos of the FFCo name.

The acquisition of Trampoline is yet just another step in the expansion strategy for Franchised Food Company. With 13 Trampoline stores in Victoria and the Northern Territory, FFCo sees massive opportunity to expand this award-winning gelato  brand nationally. Self confessed leaders in the fun treats space, FFCo has further brand takeovers in their sights, which, if completed will see aggressive national expansion in the franchising sector.

Trampoline, Stan Gordon Gordon is ecstatic to announce the acquisition, marking further development and future plans for the franchising business:

“They call me the Fun Treats King, and that’s just what I am! I couldn’t be more excited to have the opportunity to make Trampoline part of the FFCo family. One of the most important things we look for in an acquisition is that the brand fits well into our existing vision. Like all of our brands, Trampoline encourages people to take a moment to enjoy life’s simple pleasures and like all of our brands, it must bring a smile to the customer’s face. I am confident that Trampoline will.”

“The tasty treats market is filled with opportunity for growth and future success and there is much more in the pipeline for FFCo. We always have our sights set on new exciting ventures and opportunities that will benefit all stakeholders. Trampoline is an important part of our continued growth, with many more big things to come,” he added.

Gordon added that although Trampoline will be owned and operated by FFCo, he is delighted to confirm an ongoing relationship with Burra Foods. FFCo was founded by Gordon in 2009 to house the various interests of the variety of food brands. The company is proudly 100% Australian-owned and is the country’s biggest multi-system non-listed franchisor, now with almost 200 stores nationwide.
