Frozen Academy sat down with Tom Ostoich, owner of SR Food Group. When asked what sets them apart from the competition, Tom states there are no hidden ingredients. When frozen yogurt became popular in the early 2000’s, Tom noticed that the flavors tasted very artificial. He wanted to create flavors that were authentic. Tom has been in the industry since 2006. He bought a small plant that was owned by Arnold Schwarzenegger.

His favorite part of the experience is being able to bring products that customers want, also being able to creating new products like soft serve acai bowls and more in demand products that fall under the frozen dessert umbrella. What sparked the interest to create healthier products for the consumer was when local school districts asked the company to develop something for the students that would be healthier than soda machines.

Tom’s favorite authentic frozen yogurt product that they have to offer is a gelato base that customers can use as a blank canvas to play off of. They also have a very popular soft serve line that goes by Summit Premium. They plan to use oat milk in their products in the future. With their organic products being wildly popular, the addition of oat milk should be a great hit. The best technological innovation Tom would like to see is a machine function that allows you to get a bacterial count while product is in the hopper and a possible in house swab kit.
