    Cold Stone Creamery is an American-based ice cream parlor chain. Headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona, the Company is owned and operated by Kahala Brands.[1] The Company's main product is super premium ice cream made with approximately 12–14% butterfat,[2][3] made on location and customized for patrons at time of order. Cold Stone has also expanded its menu with other ice cream related products, including: ice cream cakes, pies, cookie sandwiches, smoothies, shakes and iced or blended coffee drinks.

    Since 2008, the Company has been co-branding its locations with other chains in an attempt to not only increase its presence outside of the United States, but transform its business model from seasonal to year-round.
