Maggie Moo's: This is one ambitious bovine
A timid grazer in Colorado territory until now, the MaggieMoo’s ice cream store chain has a most ambitious plan for expansion in the state, planning more than 20 franchises in the Denver metro area within the next five years. That’s a huge jump from the current four in the state -- Aspen, Centennial and two in Colorado Springs -- but right in step with the rapid migration plan for Moo’s. They have more than 185 stores currently in 38 states (and Thailand), on their way to meeting a goal of 1,000 locations by 2009 to better compete with Cold Stone Creamery and Marble Slab. Sharon Adams is the master developer for the chain in Colorado and is also looking at adding as many as three more Moo’s in El Paso County within the next five years, although no locations have been selected.
