MilkShake Factory - Franchise

A Rich History
MilkShake Factory begins in 1914 as a small soda fountain and chocolate shop in Pittsburgh's Lawrenceville neighborhood. Charlie and Orania immigrated from Greece and opened their first chocolate shop and soda fountain. At the time, a milkshake was a true treat for the whole family. Home refrigeration was a luxury few could afford, so to savor the taste of ice cream, let alone the thick chill of a handmade milkshake, was cause for an excursion to the soda fountain.

In the early 2000s, the fourth generation took over the family business and established a unique retail operation that created a community focused dessert destination. Today we are ready to invite like-minded entrepreneurs to use our playbook to make life sweeter for their local communities.

We Don't Cut Corners
The MilkShake Factory takes pride in every product we serve, and we never cut corners. From a young age, we were taught that everything starts with the right ingredients which means every aspect of MilkShake Factory has been refined from our customer experience to improved operational efficiencies, and the ingredients we use to balance flavors.

Be a Pillar of Your Community
Our stores are a gathering destination in the communities we serve. Being a successful MilkShake Factory franchisee means being a pillar of your community and enjoying the benefits of giving back.
