C. Nelson vs. Excellence Dipping Cabinets which is best? It Depends. Episode 21


C. Nelson Mfg., Co builds one of the best cabinets in the world. I have had the pleasure to work with the Smith family, owners of C. Nelson, for over 40 Years. I have designed, installed, serviced, and scooped from these awesome cabinets. They are built to last.

Excellence Industries is a world class importer of value priced cabinets. I have had the opportunity to work with Excellence for over 15 years and have found the Excellence dipping cabinet to be a satisfactory alternative when availability is key. The Excellence is not the same cabinet as the ones built in the USA, but, it is a cabinet that will allow you to start scooping ice cream today, and under today’s economic craziness that works for many.

Soft Serve or Hard Scooped Ice Cream, which do I sell – the trend is to offer both, 2 unique and different markets that you can satisfy.

There was a time that if you wanted a Scooped Ice Cream cone you went to the local hand dipped ice cream shop, if you wanted soft serve you went to the local Dairy Bar. Today selling both Hard and Soft Ice Cream at the same shop continues to grow. Why? Because it is the answer to serving your customer’s wants. Can a shop survive selling only 1 style Ice Cream, Yes. But the growing trend is to blend both into the shop menu.

Charlotte’s Soft Serve Ice Cream shop, is a example of this move to selling both. Why? Because her customers wanted both. How hard is it to add 8 or more flavors of scooped ice cream? It is easy, contact your local Ice Cream Supplier – Dairy. In Charlotte’s case she added Perry’s Ice Cream. This becomes a profitable partnership between you the shop owner and your ice cream supplier.

Supply Chain – Why the Global Supply Chains May Never Be the Same….. WSJ

Back sometime… the first week, COVID hit our world, of March of 2020, I was working with Perry’s Ice Cream and the folks at Progressive (Cleveland, OH) Field. We were preparing for the start of the 2020 Baseball Season, and then the world shut-down.

The last thing Jenna Stierhoff, with Delaware Northwsj (Stadium Foodservice operator) said to me as we all started walking out; see you in 2 weeks.

Yes we all thought our world would go back to Normal soon. Nothing was further from the Truth. We may Never go back to those days. According to a new WSJ documentary…it may never return.

Our Supply Chain….has it changed forever………..

This documentary is worth the price and is an education in how we as small business owners must adapt to the our new environment. This week I celebrate my 67th birthday and I can tell you……the world is always changing. I embrace the change and look to serve my customers with the services they require.
