Blended beverages and smoothies use to be reserved for the summer months or those lucky enough to live in states where temperatures rarely drop below 40 degrees in the dead of winter. But now consumers are drinking blended frozen beverages year long and are showing no signs of slowing down.
New, inventive or seasonal beverages are a major draw for customers, especially those among the younger demographic. Convenience store operators report an increase of 45% in frozen dispensed beverages in the first half of 2013 and only expect it to continue to grow.
Smoothies are a popular drink for innovation. According to Technomic, they grew by 8.5 percent in 2012. However, frozen blended coffees give a high profit margin, estimated at 65 to 70 percent according to a recent Mintel research.
