Cold Rock coming to Belconnen

By johnboy - 1 July 2011 27

Franchise.net have a story on Canberra’s third Cold Rock franchise opening in Belconnen.

The franchise is owned by husband and wife team Guy and Karen Randell and business partner Michael Unwin.

“We fell in love with the concept of Cold Rock because it appeals to today’s consumer who is looking for things that are new and unique and which they can customise,” Guy Randell said.

“Belconnen is one of Canberra’s largest and most exciting urban areas given its continued growth, and we think this store is a great fit for the area.”

Belconnen wasn’t exactly doing a roaring trade when I walked past this morning. Something tells me opening an icecream shop in the middle of a Canberra winter is not the best timing.

Erindale Cold Rock = five bucks for half a scoop of ice cream in a cup. Very stingy.

Goodberry’s beats it hands down.

That’s not just Erindale Cold Rock – that’s every Cold Rock. Ridiculously overpriced for what it is.

Cold Rock couldn’t be further from Goodberry’s (and spin offs). Goodberry’s was frozen custard blended with a variety of mix-ins. Cold Rock is ice cream with stuff “smashed” into it on a cold slab.

I take it this was intended as a joke…

Me too. Any ice cream is basically frozen custard ie milk, sugar and eggs heated together until they thicken. I always wondered why Goodberrys felt they had to state that. It’s a bit like a fish and chip shop trying to be special by advertising “deep fried potato sticks”.

I really enjoy Goodberrys/Rubees, but only have it a couple of times a year. I could easily go and pick some up once a week, but I enjoy it more in moderation.

I tried Cold Rock at Erindale one day.. VERY underwhelming and nothing like Goodberrys. Sure, having things smashed into your icecream looks kinda cool, but I found the product underwhelming and the price fairly ridiculous. You could get a large concrete @ Goodberry’s or one of those 1L tubs of premium icecream from the supermarket for the same price as a tiny tub of Cold Rock.

I keep misreading this as Cock Rock and think that The Darkness are going to play at The Lighthouse.

Whilst I would have thought that opening an ice cream business at the start of winter wasn’t the best of timing, the queue out the door at Goodberries last night in 3 degrees would appear to suggest otherwise.

…so is this just another rebadge for Rubees (/Goodberry’s)? or an all new store?

Are you the same Cameron from Goodberry’s Belco?

Ahhhh, that explains the rather cryptic half-covered sign I saw the other day. The only part I could see showed the words “cold ice-cream”, which I thought was a somewhat necessary characteristic OF ice-cream.

It is next to Nandos in the new Lathlain street frontage of Westfield. I give Rubees 6 months before they fold, and Cold Rock 18 months before the masses realise it is a completely underwhelming form of icecream.

Cold Rock is great, once a year, when you’re holidaying somewhere other than Canberra. Ditto Krispy Kreme.

…oh Google tells me it is in the Mall, facing out to the Police Station (Lathlain Street)…
