According to a special report from market research company IBSWorld coffee and frozen yogurt shops have experienced the most growth in the frozen dessert sector, while ice cream and juice and smoothie bars have struggled. By recognizing the consumer’s desires for healthy, customizable treats frozen yogurt shops have contributed heavily to their economic success. Coffee shops, meanwhile, remain attractive because guests have options between cup sizes, low-fat or dairy-free milk, and low-calorie or full-flavor syrups.
“There are a few key things that drive those that do better,” says Nikoleta Panteva, senior analyst at IBISWorld. “One of them is the ability for consumers to customize their treats, which allows them to choose their own flavors and also allows them to spend as much money as they’re ready to spend, particularly with the self-serve option in frozen yogurt.”
Panteva says ice cream stores can ensnare more of the frozen dessert consumers by working a self-serve format into their operations. Are you an ice cream store that needs to change its format to self-serve? Calypso has a complete turn-key package for self-serve dessert shops.
