March 6, 2009 - PRLog -- Although consumers are cutting back their spending in many areas, dessert remains an affordable indulgence. Businesses that feature frozen desserts are faring particularly well as more people seek familiar, comfort foods during uncertain times (

While fine dining may be on the decline, going out for a frozen treat is an inexpensive activity that consumers continue to partake in, regardless of the economic climate. Historically, as the Dow goes down, consumption of small luxuries increases. Italian ice and frozen yogurt are especially popular because they let people indulge their sweet tooth without sabotaging their waistlines- or their wallets.

The nation's frozen dessert industry has grown to a $6.3 billion a year business. Premium ice cream, Italian ice and frozen yogurt franchises and business opportunities offer prospective entrepreneurs the chance to become part of this lucrative industry. Whether would-be business owners are interested in running a traditional retail location, a kiosk, push cart or concession trailer, there are numerous concepts to choose from. Frozen dessert franchisees benefit from owning a business that features popular, perfected recipes and widespread consumer brand recognition and loyalty.
