Register the health and retail permits required to open a food business in your area. Depending on where you live, you may need an assumed name certificate, sales tax permit, food manager certification, food-handler permits or a food enterprise license. Contact your state's health department and small business development center to find out what business documentation you need.
The principle used by these machines is quite simple. The actual freezing is accomplished in the unit's freezer bowl, which contains a cooling liquid between a double-insulated wall. The bowl must be extremely cold before it can freeze anything, so you put the bowl in your freezer, preferably for at least 12 hours. (My original unit came with an extra freezer bowl, so I keep both bowls in the freezer at all times so I can make ice cream whenever the notion strikes me.)
