Franchised Food acquires dairy products retailer Trampoline

RBR Staff Writer Published 27 September 2013

Australia-based Franchised Food Company (FFC) has acquired Trampoline, an ice-cream and dairy products producer and retailer, from Burra Foods Australia.

The transaction will expand the assets portfolio of Franchised Food Company, and is one among a series planned to be undertaken by the company to expand its presence in the food and treat category.

Franchised Food CEO Stan Gordon told Franchising that one of the most important things the company will look for in an acquisition is that the brand fits well into their existing vision.

"Like all of our brands, Trampoline encourages people to take a moment to enjoy life's simple pleasures and like all of our brands; it must bring a smile to the customer's face," Gordon added.

Trampoline was launched by Burra Foods Australia in 2004, which has 13 stores in Melbourne, Queensland and the Northern Territory. Franchised Food Company will take over all the stores of Trampoline from 30 September.

Burra Foods Australia is a dairy ingredients producer and offers natural cheese, fresh milk concentrates, food preparations, fresh dairy products and blue cow cottage cheese.

Launched in 2009, FFC operates as franchising company of food products. It operates brands like Cold Rock, Mr Whippy, Nutshack and Pretzel World, while Burra Foods produces dairy ingredients. Presently, it operates 200 stores nationwide.
