Services Marketing at Ice Cream Shops: Baskin-Robbins, Ben & Jerry’s and Cold Stone Creamery
Introduction This purpose of this paper is to compare and contrast services marketing at three ice cream scoop shop companies: Baskin-Robbins, Ben & Jerry’s, and Cold Stone Creamery. In a Mintel report on ice cream shops published in 2009, “roughly seven out of 10 respondents say that ice cream is the first thing that they think about when wanting a tasty treat” (Ice Cream). Given that consumers are easily drawn to ice cream as a product, ice cream shops are not necessarily challenged at attracting customers to eat ice cream, but instead must focus their marketing efforts on selling the experience and service that comes with a customer’s visit to an ice cream shop. Some focus is also placed on marketing the quality of the product as an extension of the service experience. As described throughout this paper, all of the companies use both similar and differing tactics to market their service experience to their customers. Company Overviews Baskin-Robbins is a subsidiary of Dunkin’ Brands, Inc., based out of Canton, MA. It was founded in 1945 in Glendale, CA by Burt Baskin and Irvine Robbins. At the end of 2009, the company consisted of 6,207 franchised locations worldwide, in 33 countries and 46 states (Dunkin’ (a)). It has created over 1,000 flavors of ice cream in its lifetime, and serves over 300 million customers each year (Dunkin’ (b)). Ben & Jerry’s is a wholly owned subsidiary of Unilever Plc, with its headquarters in South Burlington, VT. It was founded in 1978 in Burlington, VT by Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield. At the end of 2008, it consisted of 845 scoop shops worldwide, most of

...know is not out there with this product As mentioned before there are several health food and nutrition cookbooks out there however cookbooks are targeted to their market. Due to the fact that this cookbook will be in coordination with WIC, competition will be hard. I also don’t think many companies or other publishers have seen the need in this product and the waste and unnecessary items that are thrown away because the families on WIC need more fruits and vegetables. This product is unique in that it offers more then being just a cookbook, this cookbook is a journal and information book to being a mom, so that is what will help in setting ourselves apart from other competitors. Advertising Objectives In order to properly advertise a company the company needs to determine their advertising objectives and how they will gain exposure in the marketplace and be recognizable to customers. It is important for a company to demonstrate a product, build the company’s image and change the perceptions of potential customers. These are all perfect ways to get “Mom Made” out and get people buying. Having a book tour and touring different neighborhoods and military bases is one way of gaining exposure. Another good way of gaining exposure is promoting the product in grocery and specialty stores. Many people do not understand the need of this cookbook or realize the problem of the WIC program. Some people do not even know what WIC is. It is important to build the products image. We......
