Our first full day April 1st 2008

 P1020445        P1020446 For the last three weeks we have been pushing very hard to open the store and I have had no time to write in the blog I do have lots of notes and will go back through them to write about how many challenges we have had to opening Berry Bliss yogurt. Today was the first day and we are still missing some basic things like a real menu sign. But I feel sometimes it is better to just keep moving forward even if all the pieces are not in place. The yogurt taste great we picked out a cool selection of toppings of fruit, nuts, chocolate granola etc, and will change them based on customer feedback the customers. We have 4 flavors of frozen yogurt now Green Tea, Original  yogurt, Mocha, and Soy

We brought in a little over $130.00 dollars in the first day not bad since we have done no marketing or promotion yet. We do have to get better at explaining the concept to customers especially training employees how to answer questions. Our first few hours of operation was hilarious Milton and Kevin from Performance POS www.performancepos.comthe company that supplied our cash register point of sale system came over to install the credit card machine and make sure it was all working properly. They put up our open sign and started selling yogurt since our first employees where unable to get started until about 2:30. Our larger open banner sign did not get put up until about 4pm supplied by West Coast Signs out of Novato, CA. www.westcoastsignworks.com We still hae allot to do and are actively looking for employees to cover shifts, training and marketing.

I will go back through my notes and share the building of the store and I will continue to share my experiences around operating one store and building the second store in San Rafael Ca.

  1. Hi, first off I would like to congrats you on opening your first store. It seems like alot of work and I hope that all that hard work will play off for you soon. I been follwing this blog since day one and it has taught me alot about opening a yogurt store. I am now very interested in opening one in New York, maybe you can pass me some info that can be helpful to me. Yogurt mix, cost of store, business plan, any info would be very helpful. If you don’t like to share it, its ok, but I still wish you the best of luck with your new store. Thx for listening. dknyboyz@yahoo.com.

  2. Hey Damion Thanks for reading and commenting we have been very busy with the store and running things. Lots of fun stories about yogurt machines and yogurt mixes to come. My brother is also hard at work on our second location in San Rafael. I will share more stay tuned.
