Whipped cream dispensers are a more valuable investment than you might realize. Sure, it may just be used often as a topping, but the fact of the matter is that people love whipped cream. Here’s what you might not know.
The Banana Splits. – When you think of whipped cream, you can’t help but thing of a delicious, ice cream sundae. Be it a banana split or a delicious hot fudge sundae, it’s not complete without whipped cream — a fact that American’s adoration of ice cream makes impossible to ignore. Believe it or not, the average American eats more than 45 pints of ice cream a year. The frozen treat is so popular, that about 9% of all the milk produced by U.S. dairy farmers is used to make ice cream. If you don’t have a way to provide fresh whipped cream, your ice cream is going to look pretty naked, and far less satisfying.
Mocha-Frappa-Soy-Vanilla-Acciato. – Americans have been coffee drinkers since before the nation was even founded. (The Boston Tea Party, anyone?) Each day, Americans drink about 400 million cups of coffee, about three cups per regular coffee drinker. That’s 146 billion cups of coffee a year. Now, whipped cream doesn’t go on a regular cup of joe, but it does go on the drinks of the some 30 million Americans who like specialty beverages, such as lattes, cappuccinos, and mochas. If these caffeine-deprived people can’t get whipped cream on their drinks, they’re not going to be too happy.
Picture Perfect Pie. – Pie is a big deal. Believe it or not, about 90% of Americans agree that a slice of pie is representative of the simple pleasures in life. While pie is good with or without whipped cream, it just doesn’t look right. People eat with their eyes first. Why would you want to make the simple pleasure in life less pleasurable by denying the whipped cream?
As a restaurateur, you naturally want to give your patrons the best possible dishes and service you can provide, which is precisely what a whipped cream dispenser will allow you to do. The only way whip cream dispensers can displease patrons is if there aren’t any more whipped cream chargers, which means no more fresh topping.
