You Know What They Say… “There’s Always Room For Pie!”
There’s nothing more American than apple pie! Well, actually, there is. The 4th of July is about as “American” as you can get. The 4th of July is the anniversary of America’s independence. No other country celebrates the 4th of July!
So, doesn’t it make perfect sense to eat apple pie on America’s special day? The only problem is, most people don’t want to eat a heavy, hot pie during the middle of the summer. This is exactly why on the 4th of July, many American’s are opting to eat frozen yogurt pie, or pie made with soft serve ice cream.
In recent years, the popularity of frozen yogurt pie has grown due to the ever-increasing number of restaurants and ice cream shops that offer frozen yogurt and soft serve machines. Because of this, it seems only natural that the frozen yogurt and soft serve from soft serve ice cream machines has made its way to the inside of pie crusts, and then served to hungry customers looking for a nice dessert.

Does Your Frozen Yogurt Shop Sell Pre-Made Soft Serve Pies?
Some frozen yogurt shops are chock full of Frozen Yogurt and Soft serve machines that offer dozens of flavor choices. Customers absolutely love to have a robust selection of flavors in a shop’s soft serve frozen yogurt machines. But does your shop or restaurant also have pre-made soft serve pies that customers can purchase and take home with them? A new and growing trend is for froyo shops to not only offer self-serve frozen yogurt machines, but also pre-made frozen yogurt or soft serve pies that can be purchased as take-home treats.
There are many benefits to frozen yogurt and soft serve pies, including the following:
- They are easy to make and package
- They can be personalized for special orders
- They can be decorated to reflect specific holidays (and since the 4th of July is this week, it’s easy to decorate a frozen yogurt or soft serve pie by using red, white, and blue soft serve or by adding red, white, and blue toppings)
- They can be marketed as a healthier alternative to traditional pies
- They are guilt-free
- They are fun, delicious, and loved by people of all ages
Consider Adding Frozen Yogurt or Soft Serve Pies to your Store’s Selection
If your restaurant, convenience store, or other food establishment has one or more Frozen Yogurt and Soft serve machines, there’s no reason you cannot add frozen yogurt pies to your offerings. All that’s required is a refrigerator to store and display the pies, pie crusts, and containers to hold the pies. You will also need someone to make the pies with the soft serve created from your store’s Frozen Yogurt and Soft serve machines. And someone to decorate the pies. These wonderful and delicious desserts should sell easily – as long as they are festive and displayed correctly!
