Let’s Explore! We Can’t Wait to Get You to a Dry Climate!

Let's take you to a "dry" climate!

Play along and join us for a DOLE Soft Serve “Road Trip”!

Road trips are known for making memories, family bonding and exploring new territory! We think soft serve offers many of the same “road trip” benefits! How cool is it that your destination is on the route! For the next few minutes, let us take you for a “road trip” to explore the benefits of switching to dry soft serve mix. Hop in!

First, the cost benefits of using dry mix compared to RTU liquid mix are so impactful, we think you’ll never consider RTU again! For starters, shipping a dry product is much lighter than shipping a liquid product. As a result, you get more product which produces higher yields (2-3x more than liquid). Additionally, dry goods don’t require refrigerated transit. Another huge cost savings! Moreover, dry mix doesn’t need to be refrigerated until AFTER you add water. Our dry mixes have a 12-month shelf life and you only mix what you know you will use; one hopper-full at a time!

How about your bottom line? Shipping savings, higher yields, less waste and a longer shelf life equals lower food costs. DOLE Soft Serve dry mix can also increase your sales potential because it doesn’t contain the ingredients that often exclude consumers based on dietary or lifestyle food restrictions. Specifically, DOLE  Soft Serve fruit flavors are lactose, dairy, gluten and cholesterol free! Rising health concerns and special dietary restrictions push people away from snacks and desserts, however, soft serve has a smart snack reputation!

Still cautious? Possibly, mixing times are a concern. Dry mix becomes “hopper-ready” in just TWO minutes! When you purchase our mix, we send a complimentary mixing bucket with a lid for easy transfer and quick storage. You can mix the soft serve before shutting down for the night, stick it in the cooler and pour it into your machine when you’re opening the next morning!

Sometimes you need to see it to believe it! On your next “road-trip” make a point to visit our fans.
