New pricing allows customers to add as many mix-ins as they please for a set cost, ensuring no surprises at the register
ATLANTA – April 29, 2014 – No more surprises at the register! Marble Slab Creamery® and MaggieMoo’s Ice Cream & Treatery® are inviting customers to “Direct Their Delicious™” with their new “Unlimited Mix-Ins” pricing structure. Customers select the size of their homemade ice cream treat and add as many mix-ins that will fit into the ordered cup or cone size for a set price. Gone are the days of a customer reaching the register and not knowing how much their sweet treat will cost. The pricing, which was slowly tested and rolled out in March, has been well received by customers and has led to many return visits. It’s particularly appealing to families because they can properly budget for their ice cream treat experience.
“Our new brand proposition, ‘Homemade Ice Cream. Unlimited Mix-Ins. One Set Price,’ is a game changer that will drive transactions and differentiate us from our competition,” said Allison Lauenstein, Vice President of ice cream brands for Global Franchise Group, the strategic brand management company behind Marble Slab Creamery and MaggieMoo’s. “Unlimited Mix-Ins gives new customers a reason to come in and try our delicious, made-in-store ice cream while enticing former customers to visit us again for a new and improved experience.”
Customers are invited to Direct Their Delicious™ by:
1. Selecting their favorite homemade small-batch ice cream, yogurt or sorbet flavor (Marble Slab Creamery and MaggieMoo’s offer more than 75 flavors).
2. Choosing a large, regular, or small cup or cone.
3. Selecting from more than 65 fruity, nutty, and candy-coated mix-in options.
