Former Corporate Executive Living Sweet Life as Bruster's Real Ice Cream Franchisee

Dan Tarkoff was looking for a new chapter after retiring from a successful corporate career in sales and marketing. After an extensive evaluation of the Bruster’s Real Ice Cream franchise, he signed a five-unit development agreement in 2017. Today, he has two units open in the Phoenix, AZ area and another location under construction.

“At my Discovery Day I met the great people on the corporate team and the culture felt like a family. I just knew I could be successful with Bruster’s.”
-Dan Tarkoff
