How Do You Start A Soft Serve Ice Cream Business?
The National Ice Cream Retailers Association notes that gross sales for ice cream businesses vary broadly according to location, days and hours that the store is open for operation and how successful the store owner is at marketing and promoting the business. If you open your store in an area that receives lots of traffic, especially during the warmer months, starting a soft serve ice cream business can be rewarding. Keep in mind that the more clear your vision is for your store, the greater you increase your chances of effectively completing required paper filings, designing a comfortable and attractive store and hiring the most qualified staff in time for your grand opening.
