Soft ice cream has come a long way since its beginnings in the 1950’s and now offers a wide variety of options. Whether you sell in a cone, oysters, wafer or waffle cones with a “99” flakes, or with sprinkles of confectionary, fresh fruit or syrup toppings added, or you choose to enhance your menu by offering mouth watering sundaes such as banana splits, knicker bocker glories or use as a topping for an apple pie, one thing’s for sure you can make extreme profits and quickly recover your capital outlay.
For example it’s really easy to make 75% profit, making the sale of soft serve ice cream very lucrative. Not only will it increase your profit levels, it will enhance your menu, increase the perception of your business, increase your customer footfall and allow you to beat your competition.
For example; by selling as few as 50 small cones a day over 200 days you could make an amazing £10,500, enough to recover the cost of our smallest machine in approximately 125 selling days. Alternatively you could selling 15 desserts a day over 300 days and make a sizable £10,575 again, enough to recover the cost of our smallest machine in 125 selling days. And if you were to sell both cones and sundaes at this level you could recover your outlay in 65 days!
Costings based on a small cone selling at £1.50, less VAT and product costs of 15p, and a banana split sundae selling at £3.50, less VAT and product costs 45p.
Another popular trend for soft ice cream is the addition of the eight flavour FlavorBurst system which is quite remarkable as it injects up to eight delicious flavours into the soft ice cream at the point of dispense, with some customers claiming a 300% uplift in sales since acquiring the system, particularly good if you have to compete with other soft serve ice cream retailers nearby.
