Every Business Experiences Slowdowns At One Time Or Another
Right now, there is not only a slowdown, their is downright malaise. I believe it is a collective emotional depression, fueled by the news media's relaying every message of doom and gloom possible. If it's not war, its the economy and now, sadly the grim reality of the Gulf oil spill. Not only does it paralyze us with fear, it creates a sadness that kills initiative. Seemingly hopeful messages that the economy is "about to pick up", merely slow it down even more as investors wait for everything to finally hit bottom, dropping the other shoe, so to speak.
Customers are holding off on selling their homes, buying goods and services, starting home improvements. We're cutting back, canceling subscriptions and memberships and forgoing travel. We seem to have pulled in our nets, waiting for better weather. Seems like the right thing to do.

Follow these design guidelines, and you'll be set up to run an efficient and thriving frozen dessert business.
An efficient well thought out back of counter design for your ice cream or gelato shop is an extremely important element of a successful specialty dessert shop. The ultimate goal when developing your back of counter area is to create an environment that offers functional efficiency, creates a desire to buy from your clients and supports your menu.

You look at the website, at the marketing, and the products, and it seems like the winning formula is one that you could apply to your own business. Whatever they are doing can't be rocket science, so you won't have to be a genius to mimic it and get the same results.

It's pretty simple to copy what other people are doing, apply it to their own business, and watch the profits roll in. They tell themselves that they can figure it all out on their own. They are wrong.
