It’s time to celebrate! Ben & Jerry’s has announced a trio of new Scoop Shop franchise openings, with more on the way for 2020.

Ben & Jerry’s and franchise partner, DC Strategy have announced that two new scoop shops are confirmed to open around Melbourne, as well as an additional location in Auckland, New Zealand.


James Young, Head of Franchise Sales and Development at DC Strategy, said, “We’ve been working with the Ben & Jerry’s team for a number of years and the new string of franchise grants show that we’re continuing to grow and evolve in innovative and socially-responsible ways. We’ve been their franchise partner since the beginning and it’s great to see their vision and passion come to life. The new scoop shops are key assets to the network performance and will provide a solid foundation for the next wave of franchisees.”


The much-anticipated Ben & Jerry’s Burwood Brickworks Shopping Centre opened its doors before Christmas. Aiming to be the most sustainable shopping centre in the world and the first to achieve the Living Building Challenge™, Burwood Brickworks is set to raise the bar and transform the area into a brand new mixed-use urban village.

The second Melbourne location on Acland Street in St Kilda will create a buzz and provide a new attraction along the famous food and casual-dining street! The ice cream giant’s addition will create a brand new hotspot for people from all areas of Melbourne, just in time for Summer. The popular strip is well known for its desserts and beach vibes! Perfectly located amongst the busy shops and bars, the cutting-edge and famous storefront design is sure to have queues outside all day and night!

The latest Auckland location will open in Commercial Bay at the start of the new year, giving locals a fresh and convenient scoop shop to indulge in chocolate chunks and swirls.


Bruce Lambert, Business Development Manager, Ben & Jerry’s ANZ said, “We’re absolutely thrilled to see three new franchised Scoop Shop’s opening in Australia and New Zealand. We’ve worked really hard with our franchise partners DC Strategy to find and recruit the right franchisees that are passionate about both the business and its company values.”
