Ice cream machines are virtually pure profit machines. Ice cream will bring in new customers, increase your check size and spark repeat business. Once you decide on service ice cream you have more choices to make. One option is to purchase tubs of ice cream and manually scoop each flavor from a freezer or dipping cabinets. This option requires plenty of freezer space and is more costly. A better option is to purchase a commercial soft-serve ice cream machine like Taylor or Electrofreeze. For soft serve machines, food cost is usually less than 10% of the retail price. In addition to the pre-made products, you can create your own ice cream flavors so every customer enjoys a one-of-a-kind experience each time they stop by for a cup, cone or sundae. Whether it’s a seasonal location or yearly establishment, your freshly churned ice cream will be a big hit! Our refurbished and used ice cream machines can make it happen at a budget-friendly price.
Brand new units may offer many features, but they come at a significantly higher cost. As a business owner, it is always about maximizing your dollar and making smart purchases. We suggest spending wisely by exploring refurbished and certified used soft-serv equipment. There are dozens of sites and auctions selling used equipment, but all we can say about that is "buyer beware". One bad evaporator and you are looking at a $4,000 repair bill. Our refurbished units give you piece of mind. They are thoroughly inspected, serviced, sanitized and covered by a warranty. Our refurbished units come with all the bells and whistles, but without the lofty price tag. Come have a look at our collection of refurbished ice cream machines to get you into the ice cream business for less!!
