Cold Rock Ice Creamery is an Australian-based ice cream parlour chain. It specialises in custom making ice creams and (ice-cream cakes) by adding mix-ins. Cold Rock has over 100 stores across all states and territories of Australia.

The first Cold Rock was opened in Aspley, Queensland in 1996. In 2008, the 80th store opened, located in Melbourne, Australia, and by September 2009 there were around 65 franchises with group annual sales over $35 million. At that time and indeed today (2018) Cold Rock is the leading wholly owned Australian ice cream franchise

On 4 September 2009, Franchised Food Co. acquired the chain.[1]

In May 2017 Cold Rock launched "Super Kosher" ice creams and mix-ins. It was the first time a national Australian franchising brand offered its product especially for the Jewish/kosher market. [2]
