Blenders. Many ice cream shops offer blended ice cream treats such as milkshakes, malts, and concretes. A concrete is a thick ice cream treat that is usually mixed with toppings such as nuts, fruit, candy, or flavored syrups. Ice cream shops use special blenders that have a thin rod with an attached blade. Ice cream is placed into a serving cup and covered with a splatter guard. Then the rod is inserted into the cup of ice cream, and the immersion blender attachment is used to mix the treat within the serving cup. This reduces prep time dramatically.
Ice Cream Dipping Cabinets. If you order ice cream in cartons for your ice cream shop, you will need a high quality cabinet that will prevent ice cream from melting as you scoop it out from customer to customer. These ice cream dipping cabinets may have sliding doors that are opened and closed when ice cream needs to be scooped, or they may have an open air cooler that uses high powered fans to circulate cold air while you are scooping ice cream. You may also need to invest in an ice cream freezer or cooler for ice cream storage.
