Ice Cream Equipment / June 22, 2018 / Gwendolyn Shin
Not that traditional ice cream freezers don't have their place - or their time. Their time is almost always during the summer months, and they fill their place wonderfully at family reunions, neighborhood get-togethers and other gatherings where there are plenty of mouths eager for homemade ice cream. This article is not a product review of all or even several of the various countertop ice cream makers on the market. Rather, my purpose is to assure those cooks who have not already tried them that they can expect these new units to do a fine job.
Develop a menu of items to sell. Your featured product will be frozen yogurt, typically vanilla-flavored, with the option for customers to add toppings, such as honey, granola, candies, fruit, flavored syrups, sprinkles or even edible flower petals. In addition, you can sell shakes, parfaits and smoothies made from your frozen yogurt. Purchase a commercial soft-serve frozen yogurt machine from such supplier as Taylor Company, Stoelting or Acana Northeast. A machine made for home or casual use won't hold up to the demands of your business. If your yogurt shop is located in a large storefront or you plan to offer several flavors, buy more than one machine.
