A Limited, Local Opportunity


We are developing a small, limited number of “Sweet Nel’s” franchises in the Philadelphia area. Although we could open more, it is our philosophy to open fewer cafes and locate them in very high profile, magnet locations in and around Philadelphia.

Franchisees are extensively screened, exhaustively trained and provided with an exceptional degree of guidance and support from the Sweet Nel’s franchise organization.
