Baskin-Robbins is the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty shops, offering a wide variety of premium ice cream, specialty frozen desserts and beverages. They have more than 6,700 retail shops in nearly 50 countries around the world and we are very lucky to have one of these franchises right here, in Yonge Lawrence Village. Local Franchisees Amber and William Oh operate the Baskin-Robbins/Kernels location at 3246 Yonge Street.
You’ll absolutely feel like “a kid in a candy store” when you walk in the front door, where you are greeted by a smiling face and the scent of freshly popped Kernels popcorn. The store is very colourful but quaint and the service is friendly and personable. The product selection is outstanding, reasonably priced and the store is open year-round.
We asked Amber and William to describe their experience with running a Baskin-Robbins/Kernels franchise in Yonge Lawrence Village and here is what they had to say;
Q: How long have you been in your current location?
A: We have been at this current location since March 2010.
Q: Why did you choose to locate in the Yonge-Lawrence area?
A: We fell in love with the atmosphere the location had and still has. Yonge-Lawrence area is in mid-town known to be an affluent neighbourhood. It is a family-oriented area that is friendly to everyone and has nice mixture of visitors from other parts of the city, province, or even country.
Q: What tools (if any) do you use to stay connected with your clients?
A: We continue to support different schools, various businesses, and many activities and events that take place in the neighbourhood.
Q: How have you been able to stay so competitive in this challenging and changing business landscape?
A: We think of our customers as ‘guests’ so that we treat them as our own guests. We have been trying to form great relationships with our guests throughout the years. From the very beginning of training the thought is reiterated to the newly hired crew hoping to create and maintain the kind of environment.
