Mr Whippy

Mr Whippy is looking for new owner/operators nationwide. With a highly successful brand, Mr Whippy is a New Zealand icon. Franchisees have flexible hours, a fun working environment and earn great financial returns. Suitable for any age or background. Join our team today.

the opportunity

Mr Whippy is proud to be New Zealand’s oldest franchise and is 100% NZ owned and operated. It is an iconic brand that’s been operating since 1964 and enjoys 97% brand recognition. Throughout the years Mr Whippy has remained a national icon, representative of our outdoor lifestyle and family values. Today there are approximately 52 mobile vans trading from Northland to Southland. The brand and national coverage is once again expanding and recognition and love of Mr Whippy remains undiminished for young and old.

the franchisor

Mr Whippy 1964 Limited is the national franchisor of the Mr Whippy brand in New Zealand and it is proudly owned by a group of New Zealanders who are passionate about the brand and its history. The focus of the head office operations is to support our existing franchise network in every way possible, and to further advance the overall Mr Whippy franchise brand.

0800 4 WHIPPY and online bookings

Head Office is also responsible for forwarding enquiries we receive through our 0800 number, and website site enquiries, which represents the strength of the Mr Whippy brand.  Each year we process over 1,800 bookings and enquiries, such as birthday’s, weddings, corporate and community events. Over half our bookings are simply because people think ice cream = Mr Whippy.

real ice cream

Mr Whippy’s success is built on our wonderful soft serve product which we have developed and improved over many years. We have worked with leading New Zealand dairy companies over a long term, to develop our proprietary soft serve product and to ensure it has the perfect flavour and texture, and then to manufacture it to our very exact requirements (and our own secret recipe).  ‘Mr Whippy’ is one of the very few soft serves that can actually be called ‘ice cream’.

Each year we serve over a million Mr Whippy soft serve ice creams – and the amount is growing all the time!

your Mr Whippy franchise

Suitable for any age or background, the Mr Whippy mobile franchise is the perfect business for an individual or couple to run, achieving great sales right through the year with hours which can be determined to fit best with life – your own business, great returns and a life style, the perfect mix!

having your own area

Franchises are structured upon exclusive geographical territories.  This means that you aren’t competing with other. It also gives you the freedom to structure your own routes and establish your own loyal customers.

areas available

  • Auckland (Orewa/Whangaparoa/Silverdale and Mangere Bridge to Wiri)
  • Waikato (Hamilton x2 and SE Waikato district)
  • Rotorua & Lakes
  • Gisborne
  • New Plymouth
  • Dunedin

income

One of the key aspects of having a Mr Whippy franchise is that there are no on-going royalty fees. Margins are high and most operators will repay their initial purchase price in less than 18 months.

competitive advantage vs other, fixed and mobile franchises

vs other franchises:

  • Mr Whippy is one of the most well-known brands in NZ (97% brand awareness),
  • Mobile vans are cheaper to run than an expensive mall store due to very high rents fixed sites must pay, staffing and other overheads.
  • Mr Whippy will give you flexible hours while mall hours are usually from 8am – 6pm, 7 days per week, plus late nights.

vs mobile coffee vans:

  • Wider opportunity for trading, events, beaches, school galas, fairs, rest homes, commercial runs, throughout the day (vs mornings) etc. Plus, we have the iconic Mr Whippy tune to call people to your van and a lot less competition vs coffee.
  • Coffee has a short window for making sales – mostly very early mornings.
  • Mr Whippy gets street traders license vs coffee traders.
  • There is a higher margin, higher dollar spend and lower cogs.

The time to generate one ice cream is about 10-15 sec. Compared to other offerings at a similar value makes a Mr Whippy ice cream extremely profitable.

everyone knows Mr Whippy

Mention that you’re a Mr Whippy puts a smile on everybody’s face.  This is fun industry and you’ll have fun being part of it.

 Key advantages of owning a Mr Whippy franchise include:

  • A Brand everyone knows and loves!
  • Flexible working hours and a fun working environment.
  • NO royalty fees! 
  • Outstanding financial returns and running your own business.
  • Strong head office support and a first-class franchise system.
