Good Qualities of a Potential Frozen Yogurt Employee!!!

Good Qualities of a Potential Frozen Yogurt Employee:

Now HiringWhen you own a frozen yogurt business, it’s important to have a staff who are passionate and skilled about your product and who are able to give your customer a smile and give them a great experience so they can be repeat customers. When you are in a position to hire a new employee, here are some good qualities of a potential frozen yogurt employee:

  1. Someone who is enthusiastic. The frozen yogurt industry is fun and exciting, so you want someone to embody that while in your store. Hire someone who is outgoing and lively. You want a frozen yogurt employee who is able to chat with customers with ease, and someone who can be passionate about the business.
  2. Someone who can sell. Although you may forget because of the bright colors and all of the dessert everywhere, but this is a business and your employees need to sell the product. If your store charges $1 more for a waffle cone in your yogurt cup, then make sure your employees mention this to customers. Your frozen yogurt employees should know how to spot opportunities to make more money for your business.
  3. Someone who is responsible. This may go without saying, but you want your potential employee to be responsible. This new employee might be running the store while you are absent, so it’s important that they can handle the responsibility.
  4. Someone who is punctual. If your potential frozen yogurt employee is late to the interview, you may want to rethink hiring them. If your employees are not punctual, then this might mean that you have to run up to the store at night or on a time when you were not previously scheduled. You need to be able to know your store is in good hands when you’re not there.
  5. Someone who knows the product. When you’re hiring a new employee, you need to hire someone who is able to memorize a lot of facts about your product. You want an employee who is able to know which flavors come out on which days, and what frozen yogurt toppings to recommend to customers. If your employees are well-versed in the product then they will be able to sell more and have your customers keep coming back.
  6. Someone who can be trusted. This might be a no-brainer, but you need to be able to trust your potential employee. Call some of their previous employers or their references. Is this someone who you can trust with your business? Employees can handle everything from handling the registers to dropping off the deposit at night. You want to ensure that your business is in good hands.
  7. Someone who can clean. Anyone who has worked in the food industry can tell you that more than half of the job is cleaning. Make sure your potential employee knows that this position comes with some heavy duty cleaning responsibilities as to ensure that your business is complying with all of the health codes.

Frozen Yogurt Vs Ice Cream!

Top Five Reasons to Choose Frozen Yogurt Over Ice Cream!!

This or That

Frozen Yogurt VS Ice Cream

Frozen yogurt shops are popping up all over the place in shopping centers, neighborhoods, and malls. Everyone loves frozen yogurt, sure, but when faced with the choice of frozen yogurt vs. ice cream, why should you choose frozen yogurt? Well, as it turns out, there are quite a few reasons.

IceCream Vs1

Ice Cream VS Frozen Yogurt

1. Frozen yogurt can serve as one of your daily servings of dairy. An adult should consume about three cups of dairy per day, according to the United States Department of Agriculture’s “Choose My Plate” site. The consumption of dairy is believed to lead to strong bone health and can often reduce the risk of osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and type II diabetes. As if being delicious weren’t enough of a reason to eat frozen yogurt, your bones will benefit from each serving of frozen yogurt that you consume.

2. Frozen yogurt has probiotics, which are micro-organisms that are believed to be good for your overall health. Probiotics in fro-yo can aid with digestion, can reduce allergy symptoms, help to fight obesity, among other health benefits, according to the website foodmatters.tv. There are several products and pills that contain probiotics, but none could possibly be as delicious as frozen yogurt.

ICe Cream

Frozen Yogurt Fruit Topping

 

3. Frozen yogurt toppings such as strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, or other types of fruit can help you get some of your servings of fruit in for the day. Most Americans don’t get their recommended two cups of fruits per day, and what better way to get those servings in than with frozen yogurt? So the next time you go out for some frozen yogurt, don’t forget to add on plenty of fruit to make your treat a more balanced, nutritious snack.

 

 

 

4. You can choose exactly what’s in your frozen yogurt concoction, versus going to an ice cream shop, where everything is pre-made and you may be unsure of what’s in your dessert. You can choose exactly how much (or how little) of the amount of fro-yo you want to consume, and it generally comes in a cup instead of a cone, which is saving you calories.

Ice-Cream 3

Ice Cream Scoops!

 

5. Frozen yogurt generally has fewer calories. Fro-yo is generally made with milk, whereas ice cream is made from cream, which can be higher in sugar and in calories. Choosing frozen yogurt over ice cream is better for your health, and can help you stay on track when eating on a diet. Frozen yogurt can be a good motivation to go to a hard work out class and can be just enough of a “cheat” that you don’t consume something unhealthy like cookies, candy, or cake.

Dessert

Healthy Frozen Yogurt Treat!

So the next time that you’re in the position to choose between getting ice cream or frozen yogurt, make sure to remember all of the health benefits that fro-yo has. The best thing about frozen yogurt is that it’s such a versatile dessert. You can make your fro-yo healthy, choosing to put fruits and nuts on your dessert, or you can also load it up with brownies and hot fudge sauce, when we’re in the mood for something extra sweet.

Review of Nanci’s Frozen Yogurt Mix!

Review of NancI’s Frozen Yogurt Mix!!!

Whenever I go into a frozen yogurt store I am curious to see what type of frozen yogurt mix they use.  Last month I had a delicious mix of chocolate and low fat vanilla. The yogurt tasted perfect! It was creamy, cold, and had a delicious clean and rich flavor.  It was not too sweet and it also did not leave a poor aftertaste. I asked the cashier what product they used and she told me Nanci’s. This young lady was very helpful and gave me a little bit of background on Nanci’s frozen yogurt mix. She shared that the customers have always complimented on the stores flavors and that she has not heard of any of their customers being unhappy with the frozen yogurt product.

I believed it. My cup of fro-yo was delicious. The chocolate was dreamy and the vanilla was velvety! I wanted to share my experience with you guys because the one thing that left me shocked is that Nanci’s frozen yogurt is a dry powder mix!! Dry powder mix? Yes it is a powder base and all you need to do is add water!!! I thought this was amazing that a powder base mix could taste so creamy, milky, and fluffy!

After talking to the store employees about the frozen yogurt mix they used I went home and did a little research and contacted Nanci’s. I emailed the owner and he got back to me right away which showed me professionalism and dedication to his company. He was more than happy to give me information on his frozen yogurt mix so that I could share it with The Frozen Yogurt Review readers.

Before I go into what Nanci’s provides I want to thank the company for being so open and sharing to all the blog readers what their company offers!

How to Get Started Using Instagram for Your Frozen Yogurt Business!!

Instagram for Your Frozen Yogurt Business

This post is going to be for your frozen yogurt business. Are you an owner of a frozen yogurt business? If so continue reading this blog post. I will teach you how to use Instagram for your frozen yogurt business!

Instagram is a great tool to use for marketing and advertising for your frozen yogurt business. Undoubtedly you have heard of Instagram in this extremely connected world that we live in, but just in case you haven’t, Instagram is a social media application where users post pictures of their everyday lives to share with their friends.

Insta5

Funny Frozen Yogurt eCard!

One of the biggest trends on Instagram is to share pictures of meals or desserts with friends, which is the perfect opportunity for your frozen yogurt business to interact with your customers.

In order to use Instagram for your business, you must have a smartphone or a tablet that has the capability to download applications. Unfortunately, Instagram is only viewable on a computer that is connected to the internet and you cannot upload photos onto it from there.

Once you download the Instagram app (either on Google Play or the app store on an iPhone or iPad), you will need to make an administrative account for your business. Make sure that your username is recognizable by your customers and be sure to upload a profile picture that represents your business well.

Instagram will then ask you to link an existing Facebook and Twitter accounts to find friends. If you have an existing Facebook page or Twitter account for your business, then it is recommended that you link them to your Instagram account so you can be friends with your customers and supporters. If you don’t have a Facebook page or Twitter account for your frozen yogurt business (or if you don’t want to link them together) then you can manually search for Instagram friends later. Once you have added your friends, you should be able to click on the home button on the app and view all of their photographs.

Delicious looking frozen yogurt concoction!

Now it’s time to start adding pictures to your frozen yogurt business’ Instagram account. The sky is the limit when it comes to pictures. Take pictures of a new fro-yo flavor, a particularly delicious looking frozen yogurt concoction or a picture of your customers enjoying themselves in your store. When uploading your photos to Instagram you can choose from a variety of fun filters to put on your picture and you can also write a short description of what your photo is.

InstaHash

Instagram Hashtags!

Many business Instagram accounts use the description part of the photo for marketing purposes, especially with the use of hashtags. A hashtag is a word or a phrase that begins with the # symbol and has no spaces. On social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, hashtags are essential in communicating with other users. If two users write the same hashtag, they’re inadvertently having a conversation with one another.

If you were running an Instagram account for your fro-yo business, some great examples of hashtags would be #frozenyogurt , #froyo, #dessert or #sweettreat. Play around with some hashtags, and encourage your customers to take pictures of their experience at your store and use a hashtag with your frozen yogurt shop name. Advertise your Instagram account on a chalkboard or other promotional tool in your store.

Most importantly, remember that social media is supposed to be fun, so don’t forget to have fun with your account!
