Summer is over, school is back in session, and your sales are starting to decline. Ice cream and frozen yogurt shops call summer the busiest time of the year, often accounting for 50 percent of their annual revenue. Now is the time to do your homework and keep people coming in.
Partner with your local schools, schools are always looking to offer incentives to their students for good work and attendance. Offer a free small frozen yogurt or ice cream cone as rewards for students completing their summer reading, perfect attendance for a month, or semester honor rolls; check with the principal as the choices are limitless. Elementary students will not be coming in alone; parents often bring the whole family to celebrate their child’s achievement and to enjoy a healthy treat. One free coupon averages an order of three to four, often to customers coming into your establishment for the first time. Remind them how healthy a dessert frozen yogurt is and how fun and relaxing a family outing to your frozen yogurt shop or ice cream store can be.

Calypso has a complete turn-key package for ice cream and frozen yogurt shops. 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. With the Tare Weights the POS will reduce the weight by the weight of the cup and can configure multiple cup sizes.
