Lighter in texture and containing fewer calories, soft-serve frozen yogurt is an alternative to ice cream, sorbet or gelato. This treat can be bought from grocery stores, some restaurants or specialty shops. Yogurt shops focus on selling soft-serve frozen yogurt along with various toppings and mix-ins, plus items such as soft-serve frozen yogurt shakes and smoothies. If you are looking to start a food business, opening a frozen yogurt shop may be the perfect venture.
When using an opendisplay freezer, always be sure to store your products below the freezer line. This may result in a freezer that doesn’t quite reach its storage capacity, but the products will remain colder, fresher, and tastier for guests. Below is a chart to break down the differences between ice cream, gelato, frozen yogurt, and sorbet. Determining the differences between these products will help you decide what you'd like to sell, and therefore, what sort of freezer is best for you.
