SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cold Stone Creamery® (www.ColdStoneCreamery.com) celebrates spring with the Fresh Delights promotion that showcases a variety of delicious frozen treats; featuring the new Sea Salt Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, a Triple Berry Frozen Yogurt and a sweet and refreshing Hibiscus Sorbet, each delicious flavor will be offered in a fresh new Creation™.
"The Fresh Delights promotion is another measure of success for the Cold Stone Creamery brand," said Michael Serruya, chairman and CEO of Kahala Brands™. "We are pleased to announce that we have experienced positive same store sales for 11 straight quarters. In 2015, same store sales were up over 7.5%. Within the first quarter of 2016, we are experiencing an additional 8% in same store sales."
In addition to the super-premium ice cream and treats Cold Stone Creamery offers to customers, this growth is due in-part to the new ice-blended frozen coffee Frappe line that launched in 2015, as well as the tremendous cake program that Cold Stone Creamery offers.
"Our products are consistently on trend and peak consumers' interests," said Serruya. "For instance for our Fresh Delights spring promotion, we are offering a delicious and decadent Blueberry Donut Shake. Heavily indulgent shakes combined with donuts are very trendy right now on both coasts and have started to spread into the middle of the country so we know this will be a popular offering with our customers nationwide."
Cold Stone Creamery is also celebrating Mother's Day and Father's Day with two special promotional cakes. For Mother's Day, honor that special woman in your life with our gorgeous new Strawberry Splendor™ cake, available April 13 through May 8. She'll love the layers of moist yellow cake and Sweet Cream Ice Cream with strawberry puree, wrapped in fluffy white frosting and cascading strawberry glaze.
Additionally, Cold Stone Creamery will be celebrating Father's Day with the return of our
Tall, Dark & Delicious™ cake made just for Dad, available May 19 through June 19. He won't be able to resist the layers of Devil's Food Cake, Sweet Cream Ice Cream with brownies and Chocolate Ice Cream.
