Hello is the honey hill comparable in price with yo cream?
\

Depends upon your distributor. We go thru Sysco on Yocream, and Woodfruitticher on the Honey Hill. Also Price wise, you must compare quanity. In a case of Honey Hill you have 4 gallons. In a case of Yocream you get six 1/2 gallons, thus only three gallons total. So we get more in the case from HH than from YC.

We are a privately owned yogurt shop and we're looking to expand our flavor options. We're currently using YoCream and WANG and its just getting boring for us and for our customers. Any suggestions for new vendors? Or how to change up flavors?We're concerned about 'experimenting' due to product waste. What is this powdered yogurt I'm hearing about?

Dont know much about Menchies, but am in talks now with a former owner who opened one in May and just closed her shop as of September 1st. She couldn't make it. She paid 45K for franchise, 10% each month royality/adversiting etc, and had nothing left. We are attempting to buy her exsisting shop from the bank and reopen under our own name. She said that Menchies does have their own brand, but I know nothing other than what she has said about them. Honey Hill has the same thing, 4 gallons per case. Yocream has 1/2 gallons. They come 6 half gallons per case, so you get three total gallons total.
As far as the other poster, our sales actually go down during the summer time since school is out. We have alot of schools and three colleges in my area. We also have added fresh baked brownies to our lineup in one store and fresh cobblers at the other. The smell as they are baking is wonderful. We also have added fresh coffee too. But as far as drinks, we have always had bottled water which sells great and bottled soft drinks.
Our first franchisee location opens next month. we are excited about that. I will let you guys know how it goes over.
Also want to mention that we took our mobile unit to the fair the last 10 days. The local county fair. what an experience it was. It was a tiring time. We had plenty of staff, plenty of yogurt and products.....but in the depressed ecomony we didn't have alot of customers. The fair managers said they were down 35-40% over last year. But you have to realize, when no one is working, or is living paycheck to paycheck, the last place they want to go is spending money they do not have at a fair, no matter how much they want to go. The country is hurting all over. In the next town over, it had three yogurt shops, naturally none are making it, one closed down after 6 months. The other two are on shaky ground. So hold on guys as we head into the colder months.

Thanks for the info, I did find out that the general cost price of all yogurt(brands)is between .07-.09 cents per ounce. Just wanted to share that with you all. A lot of these franchises guard that info as if its a national secret!
On a separate note does anyone know of a local dairy/yogurt supplier in the Tampa, Florida area? Thanks

You are correct about the price per OZ. Im looking at an invoice right now and my case price ranges from 27.13 (orange) to 33.51 (Strawberry). This is my Honey Hill yogurts. Remember there is 4 gallons per case. The Yocream is from a different supplier and it is usually 31.30 to 33.33 per case depends on the flavor, also keep in mind that there is only 3 gallons total per case from the Yocream brand. I would think that the larger companies that sell their own brand would be even more. As far as servings per gallon, you still sell by the weight, each customer has a different amount they serve themselves. So how may servings per gallon depends upon how much the customer gets. Depends.
If you are wanting a Tampa Fla yogurt supplier give the Donper folks a call. They are out of that area and should be able to help you there.
Also wanted to tell you guys that we are going ahead with the Only 8 low cal yogurt. Just tried two different flavors and they went over well yesterday. So this is another venue we are trying, going for the weight loss crowd. Ill let you know how it goes.

Hi janjan1
If I am not mistaken you were testing out Donper machine and were considering replacing your Stoeltings if you were satisfied with Donper. How did it go? Would you please comment? Thanks.

Love, love, love all your advice! We are starting to branch out as well and looking to incorporate a wider dessert menu for the winter months. Have a local "cupcake queen" who will be providing cupcakes, but I would love to do more inhouse vs. out.
Question for you regarding the cobblers and brownies, do you actually have an oven in the store? Or what do you use? Trying to figure out the best route to go! I am not sure I can fit an oven in our kitchen! Flexible I think is the key and love that you are this. In any business, we have to think outside of the box to bring traffic in the door.

Yes you are correct about the Donper machines. We actually did get the problem FINALLY corrected with the Stoeltings, BUT the newest store did go totally with Donper. We bought 8 Donpers much cheaper than Stoelting could sell and they are doing fantastic. It should also be mentioned that they are a easy machine to breakdown and clean. Not much can go wrong with them it seems. Easy to clean, easy to reassemble, easy to dx any issue. So far they are working good and the yogurt is creamy as it should be. No matter the brand, no matter the flavor. AND they were able to put our name and logo on the faceplates which adds to the atmosphere in the shop. Looks really nice, color coordinated etc.

Think smaller and easier. We do not have a oven in the store. If we did the health dept would have made us get all that safety stuff, hood, fire stuff. So we went with a confection oven we bought at Wally world. Works great, brownies cook wonderfully. We were doing the cobblers in that also but discovered something else that is even better and able to do 3 different at the same time. Have you see the three cockpot thingy that sells in Sams? I think it a 3 crock slow cooker. You can do the cobbler in that too, cooks them very good. Especially if you do a "dump" or easy cobbler. You know, put fruit on bottom, topping on top, as it cooks the fruit comes thru to the top. The smells are wonderful and we sell out frequently. Some people come in just for the peach cobbler, and if you have a choco cobbler (AKA wet brownie) that too sells good. Cobbler or brownie ala mode....great weight, great taste. Add a nice fresh coffee to that and older/mature/students love it too. Hope these ideas work for you too.
