Frozen Yogurt Catering Cart – Mobile Events Program
April 1st, 2015 by Neil Williams
Currently own or getting ready to
open a frozen yogurt store?
Don’t ignore the catering opportunity. You can make a lot of extra cash, and just as important, you build your brand and reinforce it in your community.
You can try and do it “on the cheap”, but that’s a bad idea and it will reflect negatively on your brand. Much better idea is to buy one of our Nelson catering ice cream carts with cold plates (they keep the yogurt cups frozen for up to 12 hours without the need for electricity). These units are the best in the biz. Strong, reliable and just plain great looking. See a bunch of pictures below.
Here’s a summary of the program costs and basics:
- Approximate cost of the cart, depending on shipping location: $5590 with cold plates or $4600 without cold plates (prices include shipping)
- Approximate cost of graphics (logo on cart, etc) is $500 maybe less depending who does it (have a local sign co do them in vinyl)
- Branded tent (we don’t sell this, but approx cost is about $1,000). You can probably buy it from a local sign company
- You can go higher end with the Rosetto Dispensers (we don’t sell these. They are nice, but expensive). We sell an economy version of the Rosetto. Our cost is $75 per 3pk of dispensers). You would attache these to the steel sneeze-guard. Need to customize here a bit, but easy.
- If you buy the cart without the cold plates, you will need power at the venue, or a generator. Cold plates means that as long at the cart is plugged in and set at the coldest temp the night before, the plates will hold the product all day without electricity. If you feel that most of the time you will have electricity at the venue, or you are ok with buying a generator (Honda 2000 watt generator works…about $1k) then you might be best off with the less expensive cart with no cold plates. It will be lighter, and that can make life easier when transporting the cart.
How its done:
- Everyone will develop their own system over time, but in general terms, people use 8 or 10oz cups or 12 oz cups, and pre fill them about 75% with yogurt, leaving space for toppings. Put a lid on them and put them in a freezer a day or 2 before, or right into the cart. You can fit about 400 eight oz cups…you do the math on the bigger cups.
