My hotel is right around the corner from Disney World and 95% of my business is family and leisure. Typically we serve between 500-800 guests each morning, so I am always looking at ways to cut food cost. Over the last three months I have saved between 35% and 40% on the cost of yogurt. Even though the bulk yogurt is a little more expensive per ounce than the individual cups of yogurt, less is consumed because it is not packaged in a way that enables guest to take an extra 4 to 5 cups to snack on later in the day. Guest enjoy using the machine and adding the already available toppings like granola and raisins. They are able to make their own yogurt parfait! We just received a second machine and will begin using it for Greek yogurt next week. I expect the savings will be even greater considering the cost of Greek yogurt vs. regular yogurt.
