The Tampa-based chain You Say When Yogurt Shoppe opened its first Polk store June 22 in the Lake Miriam Square shopping center on South Florida Avenue in Lakeland. You Say When launched in 2007 with a single Brandon store and were the very first self-serve yogurt shop of its kind in Florida. It has grown to over 30 Florida locations with more than 50 deals signed and in the pipeline.
Customers at You Say When begin with a small, medium or large serving cup. They serve themselves from about a dozen selections of flavored yogurts ranging from the standby chocolate and vanilla to specialties such as dulce de leche, cookies and cream or pumpkin. Then comes probably the most significant innovation — the toppings bar. Customers can load up the yogurt with dozens of toppings from fresh fruit, nuts, granola and other cereals, and candies and sweets. Then come various sauces and syrups that include everything from the traditional hot fudge and chocolate sauces to Nutella. Whipped cream tops it all off, if so desired. The do-it-yourself concoction is priced based on weight, currently 49 cents per ounce.

A self-serve yogurt shop POS system must have seamless integration to a POS scale to calculate the cost of merchandise based on weight of what the customer is looking to purchase. No need to re-key a weight manually. The POS reads the weight from the scale automatically reducing employee error.
