nashvilleshoresAfter meeting John Kalfayan at IAAPA in November 2007, I walked away impressed not just with his presentation but the product as well. Just having left the Dip n’ Dots booth, Mini Melts product taste samples outshine their product. There was no comparison in flavor and texture. John had me sold.

Now the hard part. Dip n’ Dots was a regular success at our waterpark. Even their founder lives just a few miles away. Mini Melts in their back yard. No way I thought. John persisted, even sending samples for the office staff to taste. John and the Mini Melts staff offered us support that your competitors never offered.

The switch was made and in spring of 2008 we became an official Mini Melts park. On opening weekend we completely sold out of our initial order. A large majority of our attendance, on opening day, was season pass holders. I thought they might resist purchasing a new product. My fears soon subsided. The Mini Melts ordering staff quickly made sure we had product in our hands for the next operating weekend. One of our goals was to increase sales to adults. We had the kids sold with our previous product, but adults resisted. Once an adult tasted your product, they not only ordered, they ordered the large size. Thus our overall sales increased over the previous season.

The equipment works great. We had problems with our previous equipment basically shutting down when the temperature reached over 98 degrees. Your equipment held up and we did not loose any product due to melting this season.

I am looking forward to a long and lasting relationship with Mini Melts. Your product and service is outstanding. Mini Melts is not just concerned with selling a product, they create a relationship as well. I would highly recommend Mini Melts to any facility looking for a high quality ice cream.

The Benefits to Owning an Ice Cream Vending Machine Business

Starting a business provides many benefits. Starting a vending machine business provides the luxury of working less than one day per week while receiving those same benefits. The vending machine market has grown exponentially in recent years, and allows you to run a business that’s simple to execute with low capital start-up costs and high profit margins.

Your customers are looking for convenience, and with busy lives they’re looking to satisfy a craving while on the move. You will have a broad target audience when you begin an ice cream vending machine business through Mini Melts. There are certain aspects to keep in mind that ensure you achieve the most success through your business venture.

And the vending machine business offers an abundance of additional benefits that make your next business venture exciting.

From the machine itself to coolers, freezers, and cups of ice cream, you can set up and execute a business plan stress-free. You’ll streamline the process by setting up a vending machine, placing it in a lucrative location and watching your earnings pile in.

Location. The most important aspect is location. The more people passing by your vending machine, the better your potential is with the business.

Depending on the location of your machine, you can make money around the clock without being present. You can check in and collect your earnings once a week, and re-stock to maintain your operation.

What Makes Mini Melts Ice Cream the “Coolest Way to Make Money”?

With the highest quality of beaded ice cream, and delicious flavors that will melt in your mouth, our partners have found out why Mini Melts ice cream is the “Coolest Way to Make Money”. The opportunities are endless, and the customers enjoy the exciting flavors on a hot summer day.

But more than that, the ice cream itself is “cool.” The beads of ice cream are manufactured cryogenically, utilizing liquid Nitrogen to flash freeze the Mini Melts, which are then maintained at a temperature of -40 degrees Fahrenheit.

The shape and style of the beads make the ice cream easy to serve, and easier for children to eat the product without making a mess. You want to provide something unique to stand out from the crowd. Beaded ice cream in vending machines gives your customers the freedom of purchasing a cup of ice cream whenever they want.

You can sit back and relax throughout the week while the ice cream continues to sell. The best thing about a vending machine business is seeing sales and profits at all hours of the day. You receive alerts, via the Internet, when your machine is running low on product to remind you to restock. It’s a simple and affordable franchise alternative, and requires minimal hours each week.

When it comes to selling Mini Melts ice cream, the business opportunities are never-ending. You can make your new business venture as profitable as possible. Our innovative equipment has our customers in mind, and when you partner with us you can sell the ice cream through the equipment of your choice.

While a vending machine offers many benefits and minimal working hours so you can truly be your own boss, it’s your business venture. Choose from the following pieces of equipment to boost your sales and profits:

  • Vending Machine
  • Push Cart
  • Hut
  • Grab N Go Freezer

Our partners love their business. As a franchise alternative, you have the luxury of making additional money with no franchise fees or royalties.  With appropriate pricing, high-profit locations, and keeping your ice cream stocked, you’ll quickly see a positive return on investment.

It’s all about location. If you set up your equipment at a festival, zoo, or amusement park where you’ll see many people passing by, you’ll earn more money from the business venture than placing your equipment in an obscure location with little foot traffic.

When you find the right location and are offering unbeatable prices to make your Mini Melts equipment stand out, you’ll see why our product has been talked about as the “Coolest Way to Make Money.” If you want to partner with Mini Melts USA, Inc. and learn how to run a vending machine business, you’ll be backed by our brand and quality products.
