If you are thinking of starting a business on limited capital, you may want to consider a frozen beverage business. As society gets increasingly fast-paced, working professionals and students find themselves having less time to prepare healthy and wholesome meals. That is one reason restaurants and takeaways are doing so well and alongside them, businesses that focus solely on beverages. People with particularly busy lifestyles are turning to frozen beverages as meal substitutes due to their versatility and nutritional value. While there are certain “fun” beverage flavors that are more for the taste than nutritional value, frozen beverages can be customized towards the health-conscious consumer as well.
In this article, we explore some of the best reasons to start a frozen beverage business.
One trend that cannot be missed right now is the trend towards health and fitness. Even before the onset of COVID0-19, an increasing number of people have been hopping onboard the health wagon, albeit in ways that fit around their busy lifestyles. When you make slushies from fresh fruits, you can offer a nutritious drink that can serve as a meal substitute. Besides meeting nutritional requirements, those who are too busy to sit down and have a meal will be drawn to your healthy frozen beverages on the go.
Compared to full-service restaurants, little expense is required when starting a frozen beverage business. Besides the machine you will require to make your slushies and beverages, you can make do with a small and simple shopfront to begin with when you offer frozen beverages on the go. Besides space for a sink and cashier, there’s not much else you need to contain within your shop until you are ready to expand.
Another great reason to start a frozen beverage business is the huge room there is for expansion despite starting off with a small capital. Besides coming up with new flavors and combinations as your business grows, you can offer a special “house blend”, a special concoction unique to your store. You can also come up with new seasonal recipes, such as a blood orange slushie for Halloween.
In addition, if you are going down the health-conscious route, you can go the full works and incorporate other items into your menu. This can be anything from salads to sandwiches, offering a one-stop shop for the health-conscious customer. As your business expands and you have more capital to work with, you can turn your kiosk into a café, investing in a larger shopfront alongside tables and chairs for customers to sit back and enjoy their food and drinks. The possibilities are limitless when you start a frozen beverage business.
