There are quite a few margarita machine and soft serve frozen yogurt equipment manufacturers that distribute products around the world. When you have made the decision to add frozen beverage equipment and/or a soft serve machine to your establishment – or if you are planning to open new store that will serve frozen yogurt or soft serve ice cream – it’s important that you do your homework before leasing or purchasing anything. It may be tempting to select a particular machine based on how it looks, its specific aesthetic features, or its price. But before making a decision, it’s important that you understand exactly what you are getting, and how it will serve your needs.
What are the Similarities and Differences?
When shopping for a margarita machine, soft serve frozen yogurt equipment, or frozen beverage equipment, you may initially believe that all of your options are very similar and the only apparent difference is the price. But there are other subtle variations with each and every model. Regardless, a few of the most important factors that should go into your decision making process are whether 1) the machine(s) meets required health and safety standards, 2) the machine has a good warranty, and 3) you will have access to a an extensive network of service providers in your area who know how to help you maintain and repair the type of machine you select.
How to Choose the Right Size Frozen Beverage Dispenser or Soft Serve Machine
The size of margarita machine, frozen beverage dispenser, or soft serve machine you select should depend on exactly how and where you plan to use the equipment. Will you place a margarita machine behind a bar counter? Will your frozen beverage dispenser and/or soft serve machine be self-serve or full-serve? Will your frozen yogurt machine be located in the kitchen area of your restaurant, or will it be out in the open for customers to see? In general there are two types of machines – those that are designed to sit on a counter and those that are designed to stand on the floor. Countertop models are usually smaller than free standing models – but each variety comes more than one size.
Is it better to lease or buy a frozen beverage dispenser and/or frozen yogurt machine?
There are pros and cons to leasing vs. buying a margarita machine, frozen beverage dispenser, or soft serve ice cream machine. Before making a decision, it’s important to consider several factors. For example, are you planning to add a frozen beverage dispenser to an already established business? Or are you opening a new shop and don’t want to commit to purchasing a soft serve ice cream machine until you know for certain that it will be profitable? If you are on the fence about leasing vs. buying your equipment, it’s important to work with a frozen beverage equipment and/or soft serve machine distributer that offers both options.
