Novelties

Are items that can be manufactured by the storeowner using an Electro Freeze Soft Serve Machine or Slush Machine. Novelties can be made in various shapes and sizes and are usually coated or dipped in toppings. They can be flavored by using fruits, nuts or candy. They can be individually wrapped and labeled, and sold separately or in prepackaged quantities. Examples include ice cream sandwiches, ice cream pies and cakes. Storeowners often overlook novelties. If displayed and promoted properly, they can become a substantial part of the operations profits.
