Ben & Jerry’s For Sale

6/10/2010 Update:

Hoboken Ben & Jerry’s for sale; owners too far…

If you have an extra couple hundred grand ($210,000 to be exact) – you can be the next proud owners of Ben & Jerry’s at 405 Washington Street!

The premium brand-name ice cream shop is up for sale, because despite the owners having relative success running it since 2006, feel that it’s too far away to manage to it’s potential, and want to open something closer to the other businesses they run outside of Hoboken (and near where they live.)

There are 5 years left on the lease, and you wouldn’t even have to pay the franchise fee if you wish to keep it a Ben & Jerry’s. Any takers?

Description – Ice Cream store
Website – www.benjerry.com
Address – 405 Washington St, Hoboken, NJ 07030
Telephone – 201-792-1966

precious metals cost less per ounce.

I absolutely love this place – the staff are always so friendly and helpful, the environment is always clean, they are always playing good music, and the ice cream is always amazing.

Thank you and you’re most welcome anytime. We are not going anywhere.[quote comment=”153787″]I absolutely love this place – the staff are always so friendly and helpful, the environment is always clean, they are always playing good music, and the ice cream is always amazing.[/quote]

Anyone with a half a brain would offer them nothing and agree to take the lease over….end of story.
Do they really want to continue for another 5 years? Wait them out.
I would also like to see their “actual” books to determine how profitable they are. Just because somewhere is busy does not make them successful. Remember there was a B&J in Hoboken 15 years ago that went under. This was before Ralph’s, Rita’s, Coldstone, etc.

I don’t remember an earlier B&J in Hoboken but I do remember we used to have a Haagen Dazs. [quote comment=”193382″]Anyone with a half a brain would offer them nothing and agree to take the lease over….end of story.

I remember the earlier B&J’s. I don’t recall a Haagen Dazs at all. [quote comment=”193386″]I don’t remember an earlier B&J in Hoboken but I do remember we used to have a Haagen Dazs. [/quote]

Who would pay that? If you’re not paying for the franchise fee, what’s there for $200,000? Some coolers, a couple of gallons of “Cherry Garcia” and an overpriced lease. If you only have to pay rent through the summer months, it’s a deal. 😀 [quote comment=”193382″]Anyone with a half a brain would offer them nothing and agree to take the lease over….end of story.Do they really want to continue for another 5 years?

The reason you do not remember HD is because it never existed. B&J was either between 2/3rd or 3/4th circa 1993/94.

I’ll defer to you guys then. Coulda sworn there was an HD in the early ’90s on Wash around 2/3 but if you guys say it was a B&J I’ll take your word for it. Was there ever a Carvel in Hoboken or am I imaging that too? And there was a Burger King across from where McD’s is now, right?[quote comment=”193406″]Thank You!

I’ve lived in Hoboken twice. I lived here for a year with a roommate in the early 90s. I moved back into Hoboken permanently in the late 90s. I don’t recall ever seeing a Carvel. That doesn’t mean it didn’t exist. There could have been one before I moved here. There definately was a Burger King across from McDonald’s though.[quote comment=”193506″]I’ll defer to you guys then.

Good luck with that pricetag. H411, just put “DOOMED” up now.

I heard they were selling because their assets were frozen. Thanks for the scoop on this half-baked idea.
