Commercial Frozen Yogurt Machine Reviews
No matter what type of restaurant you own, adding a frozen yogurt maker or two makes sense. You can offer a nice cup of yogurt free after every meal, or you can sell it as a dessert item on your menu. If you own an all-you-can-eat buffet, you already know the ice cream sundae station is one of your biggest draws. Parents and other health conscious adults will appreciate the fact you're offering a healthy alternative to the calorie-packed ice cream served at other establishments. Frozen yogurt sundaes taste every bit as good, and they're healthy to boot.

They've done such a phenomal job, you'd be hard pressed to find a machine made by any other company in a busy restaurant.

SaniServ 408 Countertop Soft Serve Yogurt Freezer (Model 636-408)

This system is ideal for a restaurant with limited space that wishes to add frozen yogurt (or ice cream...it can make either) to its menu. This machine allows business owners to add a profitable item to the menu with the smallest footprint possible. By being small enough to place on a counter, it saves valuable floor space.
Pros - Don't let the size fool you, the Sani Serv 408 is capable of serving up product all day, every day. It is a favorite amongst owners and has been a profitable addition to companies nationwide. It easy to clean, produces consistently good product and operates quickly and smoothly. It is offered at a low price point when you consider that floor-standing models cost more than double.

Cons - While the smaller size is ideal for placement on a cart or an open counter-top, it limits the amount of product that can be mixed at one time. If you plan on serving high volumes, you may want to consider one of the floor standing models.
