Will Frozen Yogurt Continue to be Popular in the Future?

There’s always going to be a place for frozen yogurt brands that deliver a consistent and elevated taste experience. Similar to ice cream or gelato there’s always room for a taste innovator to gain a following. According to industry reports, the average U.S. resident eats 1.2 pounds of the stuff each year.

But if you’re planning to start a “me too” frozen yogurt shop to capitalize on demand, we’re sorry to say the best time to start has already passed. If you want to enter this market you’ll need to find a way to innovate and actually be a leader in the local dessert market.

The frozen yogurt popsicle is a good example of innovation in this category.

One way to become a market leader is to innovate on flavor. One example of a business able to accomplish success for a few years based on this strategy is 16 Handles. You’ve probably never heard of this company unless you live outside New York. 16 Handles differentiated themselves in the market by offering tart flavors of frozen yogurt instead of sweet options like strawberry or vanilla.

Although the company 16 Handles is still around, the company experienced challenges in their original business plan as changes in customer taste continued to evolved and competitors introduced similar flavors to make their product less unique.

Staying on top of innovation in the frozen dessert industry is one of the toughest aspects of building a new company in this space. You might see success this year, but will need to continually reinvent yourself to stay in business, which is not ideal unless you’re truly passionate about following trends

A new type of frozen dessert will only be exciting and innovative for 1 – 3 years at most. Then customer preferences change and move onto the next thing.

Frozen yogurt will always be a viable business option as long as consumers like frozen treats. But you’ll need to take the time to establish what makes you different from a flavor, ingredient, or experience perspective to improve your odds of success in this business.
