Frozen yogurt shops are popping up all over the place and are becoming more popular by the day. Similarly, more and more restaurants are starting to offer soft serve ice cream and frozen yogurt on their dessert menus. Given this trend, it’s no surprise that convenience stores around the world are beginning to jump on the bandwagon. These days, it’s not unusual to see soft serve machines at convenience store locations just about anywhere.
The main purpose of convenience stores is that they are “convenient.” But not only should they be convenient for purchasing items such as gasoline for your car, a gallon of milk, and lottery tickets, but also they should be a convenient location to purchase one of the world’s favorite treats: soft serve.
Like restaurants and all types of retail establishments, convenience stores are constantly looking for ways to differentiate themselves from other convenience stores. Differentiation means that similar-type stores offer slightly different products and/or services compared to their competitors. For example, 7-11 is famous for its frozen drink, the Slurpee. Customers may by-pass other convenience stores (some that may even offer similar frozen drinks) and drive out of their way to a 7-11 just to purchase a Slurpee. If you own one or more convenience stores, wouldn’t it be great if customers traveled the slightly extra distance to visit your store because they know you offer delicious soft serve ice cream or frozen yogurt?
We work with convenience store owners to help them increase profit margins with the installation of soft serve machines. Because soft serve ice cream and frozen yogurt can yield high profits, many independently-owned and chain convenience stores are opting for at least one soft serve machine to help boost their overall revenue.
Most soft serve machines are simple to install and operate. In fact, we offer soft serve machines that can fit into as little as 2 square feet of space. Not only do we help you select the correct machine(s) for your store, but also we make sure you understand how to operate and maintain your machine. Your employees will not struggle to clean and re-fill your soft serve machine, and keeping your machine running smoothly takes minimal effort. One of the greatest aspects of Spaceman soft serve machines is that they are reliable. But if anything should go wrong, we are here to help!

If it’s a hot day and you suddenly get a rush of customers – such as a little league baseball team or an entire bus filled with children from a day camp – you can rest assured that your soft serve machine will be able to accommodate the demand – as long as a store employee makes sure that the machine is filled with the proper, pre-packaged ingredients.
