Considering Slushies for your Business?
Why Sell Slushies in your Business?
#1 ATTRACT New Customers! Shoppers who are Slushie drinkers will seek out Slushies .. they will go past other shops selling stuff they want – and stop at one that also sells slushies!
Case File: a bakery near a bus stop – but not as close as a competitor, attracted a healthy flow of new customers to their shop by offering (and advertising) their Slushies from their new machine!
#2 BUZZ! Slushies add Sparkle and Excitement! A well maintained and presented Slushie stand will really create a stir amongst your local shoppers.
Case File: A garage bought a complete set-up, including a stand and cup dispensers and allowed their customers to serve themselves – with great results. Soon customers were coming to their garage to get Slushies (and then buying petrol, just because they were there!).
#3 PROFIT! Slushies have a very healthy mark-up.
Case File: A Medium (300 mls) serve, including cup, spoon straw and lid, should cost you about 60 cents – you sell for $3 to $3.50. WOW!
#4 GROWING Market! Slushie Sales shot up over the last 14 years and continue to rise steadily, despite the anti sugar lobby.
Case File: When we started in 2003, most people didn’t even know what a Slushie was – even if you called it an Icee or a Slurpee or a Slush Puppie! And those who did buy them were mostly under the age of 10.
Now, it’s not uncommon to see a 40 year old slurping a slushie .. and almost everyone knows what they are.
Not only that, Slushie Machines are now selling Frozen Coffees, Frappes and Healthy Choice Fruit Juices .. with more choices on the way!
