It’s now our third month of business and things are steady but just barely.
I’m now at the point where I can guess the weight of most yogurts within 50 cents of the total price just by sight.
Our top five toppings are:
Diced strawberries, Crushed Reese’s peanut butter cups, popping bobas, sour worms, and marshmallow sauce.
However, the one thing that will bring our store to a screeching halt should we run out … is the Cake Batter yogurt.
I don’t know what YoCream is secretly putting in it, but people will get NASTY when we’re out.
On Sunday a mini storm rolled through and brought down a tree on the power lines in the back of the shopping complex. Everyone in the center was out of power for over 5 hours and we ended up throwing out some of our product due to spoilage concerns.
So in the 2 hours we were out of Cake Batter while waiting for the product to thaw after we removed it from the freezer…
-we had a half dozen people walk out and say they were going to drive 20 miles to our competitor
-a dozen decided they just weren’t going to get any yogurt
-one person threw their half-filled cup on the floor and just walked out
-one person swore at my employee and threatened to leave her friend at the store (since she was driving) if he still got a yogurt when she couldn’t get any because we were out of her flavor.
And that is why I am officially renaming this flavor to “Crack Batter”.
