Finding the Right Equipment

Selecting the proper soft serve or frozen beverage machine is one of the most important decisions you may make for your business. At Electro Freeze, we develop our equipment to produce profit-generating menu items that will drive your success. Since 1929, we’ve been helping our customers find equipment solutions that fit their business models, and we look forward to sharing that knowledge with you.

The process of purchasing the proper machine for your needs can be made simple with the correct guidance. Our authorized Electro Freeze distributors are trained professionals that will walk you through the process. After you have viewed our website, researching the potential our machines offer, you can contact us through the website questionnaire, email, or a phone call on our toll-free number. You can also find a local distributor on the distributor tab by entering your zip code.

The distributor can visit with you at your place of business or at their offices, where you will be able to see the equipment. When speaking with them, they will ask questions regarding the plans you have for your establishment. These questions help to determine the volume of product you will need to produce during peak periods, so you have the right equipment to maintain the uptime you need to make money.

Choose the right equipment for your ice cream businessSome questions might include:

  • Kind of product launch or store you’re planning. For example:
    • Introducing shakes into your business
    • Adding soft serve to an existing restaurant concept
    • Opening a yogurt store or an ice cream shop
  • Number of units you plan to open
  • Self-service or full-service
  • Size of crew
  • Budget size
  • Store location (helps to judge traffic volume)
  • Other menu items offered (indicates traffic times during the day)
  • Type of mix you desire to run, for example, custard, ice cream, gelato, frozen yogurt, sorbet, high fat or low-fat mix, milkshakes, etc. (Makes a difference in machine selection)

The reason the questions are asked is so the best fit for a machine is presented to you. Feel free to ask questions of your own. Our distributors have a wealth of knowledge! It is our job to help you make the best possible decision for the success of your business.
