Here at SnowShock we want to ensure that you are receiving the best possible advice when it comes to your slush machine purchase. We have gathered up all the frequently ask questions our buyers ask us to help you in your purchase.
Peter Campbell, CEO of SnowShock, gives his answers:-
Do your slush machines come with instructions? Is the slush machine easy to use?
When your machine is delivered we provide you with our own easy Start Guide, follow this and you can't go wrong. You will be up and running in around 15 minutes. You also get the manufacturer's manual.
I own a small local shop. I don’t have much counter space. Which slush machine would you recommend for my shop?
The Smart twin is the most popular choice when space is short.
Per square foot this will probably make you more money than anything else in your shop, so it’s worth making space and even having a 3 Tank machine if possible.
Did you know Tesco make on average £300 profit per square foot per year? Snowshock's takings are often £3,000 - £4,000 or more per square foot per year!
Once I have the slush machine where can I order extra slush syrups, slush cups, slush lids etc.…?
We supply everything you need. Just phone before 2:30pm for next working day delivery - delivery is free!
Can I pay in instalments?
Yes, we offer instalments to make your investment in slush easy on your cash flow.
It’s great because all of the free slush will be delivered once you've paid your deposit and will be selling. The stock usually sells within 6 weeks, so you'll most likely have the money in from the stock to cover your instalments.
I am thinking of buying one of your slush machines. What is your advice for promoting this new product with my customers?
Give it a good location in your shop and it will sell, sell, sell. The machine looks great, clean it once a month and it always will. We'll send you a full Point Of Sale pack including, posters, flavour labels, vinyl's etc.
You can also add a pavement sign and outdoor flags to your order.
Which flavours of slush syrup retail best? Do you offer any bulk discounts for your slush syrup?
Traditional favourites are Blue raspberry and Strawberry, they have been favourites since the 1980's and still sell the best. However the new kids on the block are Sour Apple and Sour Cherry, these fantastic flavours follow the trend of sour being a kids’ favourite.
Buy as little as you need or stock up and save. We offer bulk discounts to those who can purchase more. Buy 4 cases of slush (16 bottles) any flavours and get 10% off your whole order, including any cups and straws!
How long does it typically take to get a ROI with one of your slush machines?
41 days is the average ROI (in a convenience store) that's less than 6 weeks!
I own a party planning business and receive a lot of requests for frozen cocktails to be served. I see you sell a frozen cocktail machine, how does it work?
These are very popular, you can simply add alcohol to the slush once your poured a serving or add it into the tank with the slush, the choice is yours.
Is there anything I should be looking out for when it come to buying a slush machine?
Please beware of sub standard Chinese imitations and steer clear of old refurbished machines being passed off as nearly new, both have been costly mistakes for unsuspecting buyers looking for a cheap deal.
Don’t accept Return to Base Warranties, if you lose sales and costs of carriage, what looks like a cheap price to start with can be far more expensive if anything goes wrong".
