If you're a business owner considering whether or not to purchase an ice cream machine, the price tag plays a large role in your decision. But something businesses don't always consider is the high profit margin between the cost of ice cream and the selling price. To remedy that, let's compare two types of ice cream mix, and their profit margins.
We'll assume a 4 oz. cone is for sale in both situations, and charge $2 for a 4 oz. cone. We'll also assume that we sell 50 cones in a day and that there are 30 days in a month.
We'll compare liquid and powdered ice cream mix. Liquid ice cream mix has a higher fat content (4-6% butterfat), making a higher quality ice cream. That is why liquid ice cream mix costs slightly more per oz.
As the graphic above shows, ice cream can go a long way to boosting your bottom line. Depending on the machine, you will cover the cost of the machine within one to three months. Adding ice cream to your pre-existing menu is a no-brainer. Who wouldn't want to add an additional $32K to their bottom line every year? Give us a call to ask us how!
