The profit in ice cream business
Article by the CEO of Ice Age Co., Ltd.
The profit in ice cream business is an average of 100%, 200% if you produce yourself. This means that you buy the ice cream and then you sell it at double price.
There are basically 2 kind of ice cream or gelato production: low price and normal price. Of course then you also have the overpriced products that you can find in a top end hotel or some very unique clubs, restaurants or locations. Thinking about a simple ice cream business the low price or low cost ice cream is the kind of product that you can find in minimarket or from walking cart/bicycle. This kind of industrial production use combination of low cost oil, milk powders and aroma. You can buy for less than 4 baht per scoop and sell it from 10 till 20 baht per scoop depending on eventual toppings or also depending on your place: how attractive is, how famous is, where it is located. The price and the margin or profit in ice cream can also increase if you combine the scoops in a nice sundae as then you can charge more.
Going up a bit in the price range there is the Italian ice cream style gelato that is made from real fresh milk, real fruit or real cocoa powder, vanilla beans or other real products with an add of whipped cream to increase the taste and the texture instead of palm oil and other cheap raw materials. This kind of ice cream it is more costly, about 20 baht per scoop and must be sell for 40 to 60 baht per scoop.
After a scrupulous forecast of your customer target and an imaginary daily cash flow you can prepare your business plan considering, for a small ice cream shop, these references:

  1. Rent 25,000.00 baht
  2. Labor 20,000.00 for 2 persons
  3. Utility 5,000.00 (electric, water)
  4. Consumable materials 3,000.00 (napkins and other accessories)
  5. Office maintenance 2,000.00 (papers, pens...)
  6. Others 3,000.00 baht
Total for a small shop with 2 staff and you is 58,000.00 baht Monthly. That means that you have to sell 116,000.00 baht in ice cream if you just sell ice cream for the break even. When you sell scoops at 40 baht you need to sell 2900 scoops per month that is equal at 96 scoops per day alias:
96 ice cream scoops (nice ice cream scoops not the little one) * 80gr = 7680gr; it is circa 8kg per day that is not even 3 boxes per day!
Then you will have more income from drinks, coffee and also bakery if you have it. So, when will you open up your ice cream store?

There are also distinct kind of business in this field:
  1. Luxury ice cream business: thinking about something luxury for ice cream and gelato we have to think about something extremely HI SO. It is not enough a nice place with excellent and good trained staff. The competition in top end desserts and treats is strong. To be different from the others you need something special. An ice cream showcase from Italy could be what you are looking for. Of course the price is much higher but you have to see it like an investments. The quality of the product can last many years, the perfect visibility of gelato and ice cream improve the sales, the image of this made in Italy item will confirm you as leader in the ice cream business and will degrade your competitors that cannot afford it. Just image to compare your gelato shop with this kind of showcases with another ice cream place without them. Other places will looks like kids playgrounds. In some how it is also good to look like a kids place as children like to eat ice cream but if you want to target a different market like customer of 5 stars hotels or well known personality the design and elegance will be a must without forget a small kids thought like a teddy bear or some toys. A little corner, simple, a sign, a doll on a chair could be enough. You will be able to give to your customer a special feeling. They will come back.

  2. Big ice cream Parlor: you need a big space and it has to be in a well known street or a busy road, you must have lots of parking places for cars and motorcycles except if you are in a shopping center. You have to set up 3 teams to cover long opening hours. You will need a good design of the shop to give a nice ice cream gallery impression, some experience in contact with customer, in any field not necessarily in the ice cream field and also need a substantial investment as probably you will also produce not only ice cream but also bakery to sell along the coffee.

  3. Ice cream shop: you need a comfortable space, not necessary too big, about the location you can choose any as in this case the investment is lower. Few staff to help you will be enough.

  4. Ice cream booth: this can be a great adventure. You can earn lots of money in short time or you can even close down in a short time. The trick is to understand the potentiality of the location. You need a very small place in a shopping center, few sign, a pleasant menu and you will start to sell cones and cup to the people. I understand that the rent in a crowded shopping mall can be high so you have carefully evaluate the opportunity.

Ice cream business: how to use it
Tips for well maintain and manage an ice cream shop. A brief description of routine daily operations that occur in a ice cream shop

Opening the shop
You need a well advance before the standard opening time to set up all you need for a nice business day in an ice cream shop. 1 hour is the minimum request if you decide to open alone and allow your staff coming right at opening time:

  1. Cleaning the showcase with wet towel and wait to dry
  2. Turn on the showcase and wait at least 30/40 minutes to reach the temperature of -15 Celsius so it will be ready for the gelato
  3. While waiting for the showcase to drop down the temperature look around for some dirty spot forgotten the day before
  4. Move the ice cream or gelato from the stock freezer in to the showcase, trying to adjust the shape and the decoration before positioning in the showcase
  5. Check all the silverware and accessories necessary to serve the ice cream: spoons, scoops, small forks...
  6. Prepare the toppings to be easy and ready available
  7. Check the tables and accessories on the tables: napkins, price list, promotional cards...
  8. Welcome the staff and brief them on the past day errors and the new days expectation and new ideas
  9. If eventually somebody did book a party in your ice cream premise check that all the necessary is in order
  10. Open and start to greed customers (if any...)
  11. During the day arrange the staff so there will be always somebody to greet customer: never let the customer feel unimportant or even worst unnoticed!
  12. During the day check the availability of the flavors, make sure you have all the ingredients of the sundae that are present in your menu': never say "no have" to a customer!
  13. Check the presence of napkins on the table, the cleanness of the premise and the smile of the staff. people don't go inside an ice cream shop only for the gelato, they also want to have some good times
  14. When it is time to close turn off the showcase or showcases, move the ice cream inside the freezer, clean all the shop beside the showcase that needs time to melt down during the night. Just remove eventual big pieces of ice cream that stick around the showcase
  15. Make a tour all around your ice cream shop to see if there are some dirty spots and check that all the food, toppings are not spoilt or out of date
  16. One more note: beside the fashion, choose light color, almost white, for the staff uniform. This is mandatory by the law in Italy: food attendant must have white or light colors uniforms

Ice cream franchising Ice Age. Ice Age bring Italian gelato making ability in a Thai way and also in an easy exportable “franchising package”.

  1. The concept is to create something EASY. Easy for the franchisee, easy for the customers. In an Ice Age ice cream franchising the customer will enter not only an ice cream food reality but a place where to laid back, talk, spend time with no hurry, taste and enjoy ice cream. The places will be cozy, quite. The choice will include, beside ice cream, honey toast, chocolate cakes, coffee, tea, soft drinks.
  2. The importance we give to the values of quality and coziness are the fruits of the experience of years in this sector. We discovered that out of the Italian reality people eat ice cream not only for the taste but also to have a momento for themselves, alone or with friends. So we focus on taste of course but also on hospitality
  3. The freedom that our franchising agreement will give you is one of the most open franchising available. We will be strict on quality, ingredients and production protocol but once the franchisee understands the above concept, we will act as audit only giving them the freedom in choosing furniture, design and layout of the outlet. This is a help as the franchisee is on the spot and he will know better than us the needs of local customers and for all customers the feeling will be different than a plastic replica of existing outlet, will be a signature place any place. And can also be a saving for the franchisee.
  4. The freedom of not to be constantly under monitor for the royalties. We have a fixed yearly fee and accessories costs for services on request.
  5. The training is something that we consider important. We will arrange training section in our factory in Bangkok and eventually also in the franchisee facility. The technical assistance is also a constant in our program.
  6. More income: with the possibility to choose between sell ice cream and produce and sell ice cream you can increase your profit and create an authentic enterprise reality that can have a future not only depending on the humor of the franchising.
