Need a very general estimate of basic costs for starting up your own yogurt shop. I know it depends based on location but just generally cost of equipment (e.g two machines, point-of-sales system, etc) How much does it cost to lease a taylor machine? Thanks in advance. Any advice will be appreciated pforphilip@hotmail.com

the above posts mention Taylor machines as the best machines to use. Does anyone know what machines yogurtland, pinkberry or red mango use? Their machines seem to be smaller and the big bulky Taylor machines. I keep hearing about machines from South Korea....does any one know more? Thanks.
I found a company in Florida that is a sales rep for a refrigeration company in China. They import the machines directly so the prices are lower than Taylor or Electrofreeze. The machines seem to be good quality from the pics. I'm going to go see the machines in person at their showroom to see for myself. Here's their website.

I own a Tutti Frutti frozen yogurt store(which is yoflavor, wellspring). I was using their product and I didn't like the taste/texture too much. It Was too confusing for my high school employees. I have contacted the 2 biggest players in the product supply business, Yocream and Cielo USA. I tried both of the products and I must say that Cielo definitely carries the best tasting product. The texture is amazing and it's easy to use. Yocream has a slight aftertaste that I didn't like. The website has a web seminar to educate you on the business. www.cielousa.com
They are giving free samples so if you do not believe me, contact them and get one. They also work with most of the Taylor machine companies nationwide so if you do not have a machine yet, you can contact Taylor and they will let you use their test kitchen. I believe taste is important, but communication is even more important. They were so easy to contact and truly are the industry leaders. Thanks guys.
SO you paid $25,000 for a franchise and $100, 000 for Korean soft serves, and now your talking about Taylor machines????? I dont think tutti frutti would allow you to sell other products as it wouldnt be consistant with the brand. All in all I think you are scamming for Cielo and dont own a Tutti frutti store at ALL!!!

I went through the initial steps to open a Tutti Frutti. Tutti Frutti isn't a Franchise, as in you wont receive a FDA. You will get a buyer / seller agreement if you sigh on with them.

In short yes you can change the tasting to cater to your demographics. And I do agree that Tutti Frutti product doesn't taste too good.

For $25000 your basically buying support on starting up.

Only 8 does not represent having only 8 calories, it's named after the fact that it is made from only 8 ingredients.

I don't know that person, but I believe them. If you look into Tutti Frutti you would see that it does licensing. You have freedom to do what you like but get the benefit of their advertising and discounts on their product.
