It’s mid-March, and you must know what that means! It means the warm spring and summer months are just around the corner. In areas of the United States where swimming pools are not open year round, Memorial Day usually marks opening day. Adults and kids of all ages swarm to swimming pools when the weather heats up. They spend countless days at the pool during their summer vacations. Essentially, a swimming pool is the place to be during the summer!
For people who do not have a pool in their neighborhood, the goal is usually to find a local public pool to frequent or to secure invitations to friends’ or relatives’ swimming pools as often as possible, especially when it’s unbearably hot outside. As long as the weather is hot, pools remain a top attraction – and they stay crowded until they either close for the season – usually around Labor Day – or when the weather begins to get cooler in the fall.
When children and adults spend hours and hours at swimming pools, they get hungry. Some swimming pools offer snack bars and others do not. If you or someone you know is in charge of a swimming pool’s concession stand, you might be interesting in knowing that the addition of a soft serve machine could prove to be an extremely lucrative investment!
Many swimming pools that sell treats to pool visitors have freezers in which the store pre-packaged ice cream choices. However, due to the extreme popularity of soft serve ice cream and frozen yogurt that can be dispensed into a cup or cone on-demand, a soft serve machine might be the perfect addition to the snack bar at your swimming pool.
We are happy to help you select a soft serve machine that will fit within your pool’s concession area. Some of our smaller machines require just a few feet of space. All of our machines are easy to operate and maintain, and it’s simple to train summer employees how to use, re-fill, and keep soft serve machines clean and in good working order.
When swimming pool concession stands add soft serve machines, kids and adults come to the pool with extra money – in anticipation of purchasing a cup or a cone at some point during their stay at the pool. This is just one reason a soft serve machine can essentially pay for itself in as little as one summer season.
If your swimming pool concession stand typically offers only high-calorie choices and pre-packaged ice cream, the addition of a soft serve machine will be exciting to pool-goers! Why not provide customers with what they want on a hot day… a cool, refreshing serving of frozen yogurt or soft serve ice cream. With a soft serve machine’s ability to provide a treat that’s pool-goers want, you’re sure to make a nice profit.
