Cold Stone Creamery Continues Expanding Footprint In Asia

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Cold Stone Creamery ® brand continues to develop an expanding international footprint with upcoming locations in the Philippines and Bangladesh.  The brand is teaming up with a Master Partner in each market to expand America's most innovative ice cream concept throughout Asia. Kahala TM, the parent company of Cold Stone Creamery, has signed 10-year Master Franchise Agreements with Olive Tree Foods Ltd. in Bangladesh, and with Arizona Ice Cream Corporation in the Philippines; both of which look to bring the Ultimate Ice Cream Experience TM into their respective markets.

In the Philippines, Cold Stone Creamery will be teaming up with Arizona Ice Cream Corporation, a subsidiary of Trimark Holdings, Inc. known for their commitment to building and managing a company portfolio of the best fashion, restaurant and health clubs in the country. They will look to open fifteen stores over the next 5 years, with the first location to open in mid-2013.

We are proud and privileged to have the brand coming soon to the Philippines," stated Mr. Yuki Rosenfeld, Representative of Arizona Ice Cream Corporation.
