...Baskin-Robbins is the world’s largest chain of ice cream stores. It is well known for its slogan “31 Flavors”. They came up with the slogan with the idea that you could have a different flavor every day of the month. They also believe that you should be able to sample the flavors before you buy, so they came up with the little pink spoon. The pink spoon is what sets Baskin-Robbins apart from the competitors. Customers look forward to tasting the flavor of the month. “With over 5,800 locations in 34 countries, “America's Favorite Neighborhood Ice Cream Shop” has both national and international presence with no end in sight for expansion and growth.” (Daszkowski, 2014) Baskin Robbins international locations have flavors popular to the country they reside in. As explained by Barbara Farfan, “Baskin Robbins mission statement is comprised of 12 values and principles for success fashioned by its parent company, Dunkin’ brands. The 12 values and principles are: Honesty, Transparency, Humility, Integrity, Respectfulness, Fairness, Responsibility, Leadership, Innovation, Execution, Social Stewardship, and Fun.” (Farfan, 2014) Baskin-Robbins began as an idea between 2 brothers-in-law. They wanted to start an ice cream business that was a gathering place for families. They knew that the only way to have their business maintain the high standards that they set was to have each manager be part owner in the business, making it a franchise. “Prospective franchisees will...

Baskin Robins Branding

...  BRANDNIG   Nearly three-quarters of a century ago, two brothers-in-law shared a dream to create an innovative ice cream store that would be a neighborhood gathering place for families. Burton "Burt" Baskin and Irvine "Irv" Robbins had a mutual love of old-fashioned ice cream and the desire to provide customers a variety of flavors made with ingredients of the highest quality in a fun, inviting atmosphere.   As a teen, Irv worked in his father's ice cream store. During World War II, Burt was a Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy and produced ice cream for his fellow troops. When the war was over, the two entrepreneurs were eager to capitalize on America's love of ice cream. They started out in separate ventures at the advice of Irv’s father. In 1945, Irv opened Snowbird Ice Cream in Glendale, California. His store featured 21 flavors and emphasized high-quality ice cream sold in a fun, personalized atmosphere. A year later, Burt opened Burton's Ice Cream Shop in Pasadena, CA. By 1948, they had six stores between them. This concept eventually grew into Baskin-Robbins. As the number of stores grew, Burt and Irv recognized that to maintain the high standards they set in the beginning, each store would require a manager who had an ownership interest in its overall operation. Even though they didn't realize it at the time, the two founders had pioneered the concept of franchising in the ice cream industry. In 1949, there were more than 40 stores in Southern California when...

The stakeholders would include the President and Vice President of Robbin Industries, Wayne Terrago, Robbin Industries controller as well as shareholders, and creditors, specifically ones involved in the bond offering. Other stakeholders would be employees of the company-for if this advertising expense is reported as inventory, this can be classified as unethical by the SOX Act and is not acceptable in accordance with the GAAP to where the company can be in violation and have hefty fines which would affect the jobs of the present employees of the company. B. What are the ethical issues involved in this situation? One issue is that the excessive advertising is being reported as inventory, or at least the President of the company and some of the board members are wanting it to be. In accordance with the SOX Act, managers must be able to verify all internal controls that ensure all financial reporting’s are accurate. If this is reported per the President’s recommendation then this is unethical. Another issue is where others wanted the extensive advertising costs be classified as prepaid advertising and a current asset. This is not acceptable per GAAP and the company show that they have more assets than they have to make them look better on their financial statements for creditors and shareholders C.
