If your ice cream shop is selling individual servings in cups or cones, you could also benefit from selling hand packaged pints. Ice cream shops that don’t take advantage of the opportunity to do so could be missing out on another stream of revenue for the business, says Gelato Products.
If your customers are clamoring for a way to take home your product and enjoy it for days to come, meet their needs and earn additional income by offering pints of your ice cream and frozen yogurt products.
It doesn’t take much to get set up for selling hand packaged pints. You are already scooping ice cream from a large container into smaller ones when you make individual servings, and it’s easy to expand your inventory to include pints. Simply get pint sized containers along with the rest of your Los Angeles wholesale gelato supplies, set a price for your pints and train your staff to hand package pints to meet customer requests. Encourage your customers to add pints to their regular orders and you’ll soon profit from the additional sales that expanding your inventory generates.
Adding pint sized ice cream containers is a simple and effective way to create more sales. Customers who previously bought individual servings of your ice cream will now be able to take home pints. Many celebrations call for ice cream but it’s not always possible for people to celebrate by dining in your shop. This way they can take home ice cream for that birthday party scoop, thanksgiving pie a la mode or other special occasion dessert.
