Frozen yogurt has become part of the profitable ice cream industry. If you are considering selling your frozen yogurt products, these are a few areas to consider.
Determine the type of frozen yogurt business – Your business may revolve around a self-serve or a full-service. It is vital that sufficient research is done to create a menu and a product offering that suits your customers.
Apply for permits – To open a frozen yogurt business you will require a business license, tax identification number, retail permit, and food license.
Purchase inventory – Your business will require self-serve machines, caddies for displaying toppings, freezers, warmers for sauces and chairs and table for customers to sit. You will also require other standard business items like a fax machine, telephone, credit card machine and register. To serve your cold desserts, you will require plastic yogurt spoons, bowls, and cones.
Market your business – Customers will need to be informed about your business and what products you offer. Start by creating a Facebook and Instagram account for your business. Look at growing the number of people visiting your page and include daily deals that will promote sales. You can also offer free samples to homes, businesses, malls and other establishments around your store. It is also important that you ask your customers what other products you can add to your current product line.
