Cold Stone Creamery: Coming to Thailand


If you were excited about the news that Krispy Kreme is coming to Thailand, wait until you hear this: Cold Stone Creamery, an ice cream chain based in the U.S., is also on its way to the Kingdom.

Yesterday’s Phoenix Business Journal has this item:

Cold Stone Creamery has signed a 20-year agreement with Central Restaurants Group Co. Ltd. to introduce the ice cream stores in Thailand.

Scottsdale-based Cold Stone and its parent company Kahala announced the master franchise agreement Thursday calling for 10 stores in the Asian country by 2014. Cold Stone’s first Thailand location is expected to open in February in Bangkok’s Central World shopping complex.

You can find more info about CSC’s offerings on their home page. And here’s more about the chain on Wikipedia.

CSC is known for their enormous, elaborate ice cream concoctions. Check out their “signature creations.”

The chain’s name comes from the process by which the desserts are assembled in the store, i.e. on a cold stone, with ingredients mixed into to the ice cream.

Listening to last or this weeks podcast of Japan Talk, Ringer Hut from Japan is opening a shop in “central Bangkok” in April 2010.

Just to keep on the food related entries. 😀

It will be interesting to see what their prices are. I ‘love it’ but rarely eat it when in the U.S. because it’s one of the most expensive ice cream shops around. I’m a big fan of dairy queen in Thailand because $1 of ice cream here is $3 in the U.S. I’m hoping $6 of Coldstone America will be worth $2 of Coldstone Thailand. 🙂

Cold Stone Creamery coming to Thailand is wonderful news…Krispy Creme not so much, never really cared too much for their donuts. With Cold Stone ice cream available though…ohhh I can see I will need to add to my exercise regimen.

Agreed, Steve. CSC should be a nice addition. (As if we don’t already have enough tempting food here in Bangkok!) Hopefully you’ll warm up to Krispy Kreme donuts one day. 🙂
