If you own a dessert store, offering a generous product selection is essential to attract today’s sophisticated customers. Even more, reinventing yourself and introducing new desserts based on new trends keeps it all fresh and ensures constant interest in your business. In order to do this, some new dessert shop equipment is in order, so we rounded up a few of our favorites below.

While desserts may be fun to look at on their little shelves, there is nothing like a dynamic display piece to attract attention. Enter the chocolate fountain cascade, the dream-turned-reality of chocolate enthusiasts. If there are stores that build huge such structures to serve this awesome idea, you don’t need such dedication. When you don’t have the space, a small or medium-size chocolate fountain may be just what you need to allow your customers to dip their own desserts or watch your employees artfully do it.

Your waffle adventure, however, doesn’t have to stop here. If you are looking for a different way to serve yours, consider waffles-on-a-stick. Easy to carry and eat, they can easily become a favorite with kids. Different toppings can turn them into fancy desserts that appeal to adults.

Chimney cake grill machine

We talked before about one of our favorite Eastern European dessert, the Kurtoskalacs, also known as the chimney cake. A Transylvanian treat that is found under different names in other parts of Europe, the chimney cake is made of yeast dough wrapped around a cooking roll, sprinkled with sugar and baked in  a special machine.

It is also a wonderful opportunity to import a dessert of a very particular shape, texture and flavor into a country where dessert lovers are on a constant look to try something new. Investing in a chimney cake grill machine may be your ticket to attract such a clientele.

Shake freezers and batch freezers

When it comes to ice cream and frozen yogurt stores, especially the ones with self-serve areas, shake freezers and batch freezers are not optional. Taylor combo freezers allow you to serve both milkshakes and ice-cream (cones, sundaes, and whirl-ins), at the price of a modest footprint. Taylor batch freezers create even more opportunities to serve a large selection of frozen desserts, from sorbets to gelatos, and are a great fit for businesses such as coffee shops, bakeries and ice-cream stores.
