Frozen yogurt shops switching from cups to cones

For years, frozen yogurt has been served in paper cups. The convenience of this for store owners was unmatched. Now, however, the tides are turning and more stores see the need to introduce waffle cones to their business.

There are several reasons for this change.


  1. Easy to consume on the go. More and more moms are choosing yogurt as a healthy alternative to ice cream. They love the convenience of a cone that allows them to eat while transporting the kids to afternoon activities.
  2. Ice cream cones are edible. This means that there is no garbage left over after snack time. Ice cream cones are the greener alternative.
  3. They weigh more. Quality made waffle cones weigh as much or more than a paper cup. While many stores argue that the cost of a cone is higher, they need to understand that they can recoup the cost with the weight of the cone.
  4. Children love cones. Sure, moms might love the convenience of eating on the go, but for kids, cones are preferable to cups. Not only that. Many stores garnish them with chocolate and chips to make them even more desirable and profitable.


Turning around a yogurt shop is not as difficult as some store owners think. With just a few steps, making the switch can be an easy transition.

  1. Start sampling. There are many cone companies out there. Be sure to try out a few different cones to find the company that offers the best quality cones.
  2. Use the Internet. Go online to restaurant supply and shopping websites and find cone holders. They come in a variety of styles and materials. Plastic or metal ones work best. They make cone support fixtures for the scale; however, simply using an acrylic cone stand can be just as effective. Just be sure to tare your scale to include the weight of the cone holder.
  3. Posters/displays. The use of signage and the strategic placement of displays can really help draw attention to the newly added waffle cones. Make sure you have stands available for your customers to place their cones while you fill them with all the amazing toppings you have to offer.

Yogurt shops are changing with the times. If you haven’t incorporated them yet, you should think about it. Offering a variety of flavored waffle cones can also help stimulate new business. In these changing times, store owners must be willing to change with the increasing demand of their customers. And customers want waffle cones.
