According to the Golden Spoon website:

We have opened our franchise program for both domestic and international opportunities.  Our rich, 28-year history, clearly demonstrates award-winning performance and excellence in a variety of categories from superior product quality to customer loyalty.  As “The Ice Cream Lover’s Yogurt” we have the proven ability to engineer healthy products superior in texture, flavor, and overall quality…

We develop our domestic markets with Multi-Unit Developers and require a minimum commitment to build 3 stores. Most of our recent multi-unit developers are currently developing in excess of 10 stores given the relative simplicity of the store concept, quality of the products, and general performance of the brand.  We are developing international markets under a Master Franchise Agreement and prefer developers with capability to develop an entire country/region.

Many of Golden Spoon licensed operators have been with us for more than a decade and continue to expand their operations by building additional stores. Most of them started with Golden Spoon to augment their income and leverage product quality in a growing industry segment. Over time, Golden Spoon has become their primary or sole focus from a business perspective. This speaks volumes about our quality, sustainability, and corporate focus on the success of our licensed operators. We are a 100% franchised operation which reflects our pure focus and commitment to our franchisee owners.
