Orlando, Fla. (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
Donper America, the North American division of Donper, a globally recognized name in the commercial refrigeration industry, today introduces its frozen yogurt solutions to the convenience store industry. Through Donper America’s various strategic partnerships, the company is now offering two unique turnkey packages to convenience stores nationwide.
While frozen yogurt built its initial popularity in the 1980s, the frozen dessert lost the spotlight to its creamier and richer counterpart, ice cream, in the 1990s. However, in the mid-2000s, frozen yogurt came back with a vengeance as the United States took to a healthier option. Small shops and franchises started offering frozen yogurt with healthy fruit toppings.
Today, gas stations and convenience stores are taking advantage of frozen yogurt’s popularity as they build out self-serve frozen yogurt areas within their existing stores. Convenience stores now offer a multiple machine build out, offering up to 16 flavors of frozen yogurt, or simply one or two countertop machines located next to the slush and drink dispensers in the convenience store.
For this reason, Donper America is unveiling their convenience store turnkey package at the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) Show in Las Vegas. The turnkey packages provide two varying levels of frozen yogurt solutions. For stores looking to create a full-service branded line, Donper America has formed strategic partnerships allowing the purchase of both machines and mix. Convenience stores can then offer it to the end consumer under the store’s brand name with the company logo on the front of the machine and branded frozen yogurt cups. The high capacity machines are the perfect option for these stores. The machines are sleek, modern and very user-friendly. They each serve two frozen yogurt flavors and have a digital control panel that continuously monitors the product and ensures it is always smooth and creamy.
Donper America’s second available option is for those stores simply considering bringing in a small soft serve presence through a single unit. Donper America’s countertop units are powered by most standard outlets, giving flexibility on where the machine can be placed. Additional turnkey options include a toppings bar, mix package, cups and refrigerators.
“We are seeing major convenience stores turning to branded frozen yogurt as an added offering to customers. It is a hot trend in the convenience store business,” said Scott Amico, VP of Global Business Development for Donper America. “With this unique offering, convenience stores can capitalize on the popularity of the frozen yogurt trend while maximizing both floor space and profit. Stores can buy the yogurt for as little as four-cents an ounce and sell it for eight times that amount.”
