Increase Sales Part 1: Expand Menu

Expand Your Menu Beyond Frozen Yogurt

A great way to increase sales, gain new customers, and supplement your frozen yogurt sales is to add new menu items. If you are competing with a large chain, an expanded menu can be extremely effective, because the big chains are restricted on what changes they can make.

There are two different types of menu items you can offer:
  1. Self-service menu items
  2. Full-service menu items.

Self-Service Menu Items

For self-serve frozen yogurt stores, the consistency of the self-serve concept may be very important – both for the customer experience and for in-store operational processes and employees. Here several ideas for self-serve menu items:

  • Belgian waffles. Using a rotating Belgian waffle maker, customers can make their own waffles. This concept is commonly used in hotels and works extremely well. You can charge by the waffle or even by the ounce.
  • Pre-packaged salads
  • Soups
  • Pre-packaged sandwiches
  • Cookies or other pastries
  • Oatmeal
  • Coffee

Full-Service Menu Items

  • Smoothies
  • Sandwiches made to order
  • Full breakfast. Items may include eggs, omelets, breakfast burritos, hash browns, etc.
  • Crepes

Before making any menu changes, you should check your lease agreement to make sure you aren’t prohibited from offering additional food items.
