Soda Fountain Inspired Shakes: Re-creating a Time Honored Tradition

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

Caramel Milkshake_0Do you ever reminisce back to a slower time, before all the hustle and bustle became normal? Chances are that many of your customers do, too. Some of your more mature guests may recall times sitting at the local soda fountain or malt shop with friends, spending the afternoon sipping on a hand-crafted shake. These shops were a fixture on Main Street throughout America. As many of them are closing to make way for the mega pharmacy and cookie cutter national brand stores, their passing allows for your shop to become the new go-to place to create memories and experiences. As a shop owner, you have the ability to create a homey, small town atmosphere through the exceptional service and products you’re serving.

Today in a world of global brands and global mass culture, you can share a similar experience with customers of all ages by providing a soda fountain inspired menu. A simple, yet indulgent drink offering can be added to your menu using products you already carry. You will need ice, choice of syrup and a base, such as Torani Real Cream. We can provide you with recipes, POS materials and ideas from our own experiences as shop owners and operators.

You can use feature flavors that can transport you back in time like a Root Beer Float or Orange Cream, which will invite customers to take a seat and enjoy an afternoon treat. Along with these traditional flavors, you can create something a little more exotic such as a Magnificent Mango, Pomegranate Cherry or Blue Raspberry Swirl. The flavor combinations are limitless and can be hand-crafted to satisfy any customer’s taste buds. There are virtually no limits to the world of flavors and memories you can create with a few simple ingredients and your imagination!
