The last half century in the Dairy Bar & Ice Cream Store industry has seen many trends come and go, some of them with considerably more staying power than others. In the intervening years since 1953, our family has witnessed these many developments in the industry not only from the perspective of equipment & supply companies, but as operators of retail Ice Cream Stores as well.
We know from first-hand experience that while retail operators want to remain competitive in their new menu offerings, many feel strangled for space as it is and have, for the most part, very limited available capital for new equipment expenditures.
24 FLAVORS IN THE PRESS
Here are a few newspaper articles from the northeast that mention the 24 Flavor System. Our particular interest is a feature story on the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania area’s favorite Ice Cream stores. Although there are only two customers in the entire area, the stores with 24 Flavor System came in first and third out of thirty-one stores! (second place went to a store that serves hard ice cream only). The 24 Flavors concept allowed those customers, in their first year of operation, to out-perform all the long established ice cream outlets in the greater Harrisburg area.
