    Greetings Vikas, what's the good word? Do the folks in India scream for Ice Cream as well?

    Try an ice cream van before an actual store, see if it works out.

    Hi VIKAS, welcome to Business Advice Forum.

    Who do you plan on selling your ice cream to, will it be to resellers or directly to your customers?

    Will you be writing a business plan for your business?

    Hello Vikas ! Would you like to create your own Brand Name? If so you need to look for an infrastructure to manufacture ICE CREAMS.

    Creating Brand Name will be more difficult as there are some bigfishes in the industry... ARUN / Amul / Uncle John etc..

    That's kinda hard if you dont actually know how to make ice-cream. First at all, you need to get some basic idea about ice-cream through book. And then, you need to pay for the consultancy or hire a person who work on ice-cream manufacturing field to set up the company

    Without knowledge in the particular business, it going to be very risky. The consultant or manufacturer, may take advantage over the business.

    When we talk about manufacturing, there is a consultancy company help to set up the factory with the basic facility, the owner still need to work out on the system and marketing. Consultancy only charge you the consultancy fee, that's all
