Our favorite holiday is almost here! National Soft Serve Day is August 19th – are you ready to celebrate?
If you haven’t already ordered a complimentary celebration kit, there’s still time. Just fill out our contact form and include “National Soft Serve Day kit” in the comments. A representative from our Customer Care team will be in touch right away.
Our website dedicated to National Soft Serve Day is full of ideas on how to celebrate this cool holiday, but here are a few more ways to take your party up a notch:
- Bring in a local band or DJ to entertain customers while they enjoy their soft serve. Live music is always a crowd pleaser, and passersby are guaranteed to stop by, just to see what all the fuss is about.
- August is hot! If you have any outdoor space near your operation, attract families by setting up fun water toys for the kids. Just make sure you have plenty of seating and some shade available for the parents.
- Offer prizes to the first 100 customers to visit your location on August 19th. Order Frostline® t-shirts to give away (while supplies last), or purchase inexpensive prizes from local hot spots (gift cards are always a winner) to help customers enjoy their summer.
The key to bringing people into your store on August 19th is pre-promotion, so no matter how you’re celebrating, make sure you tell your customers ahead of time. If you have a customer database, send an email (or two!) to talk about your special offers. Post details about your event on social media. And, of course, make sure to use the in-store signage provided by yours truly.
Most importantly, we encourage you to have fun. How do you plan to party on National Soft Serve Day? Tell us in the comments below, on Facebook or Twitter.

Celebrate National Soft Serve Day August 19
The dreaded drip n’ slip, broken ice cream scoops, arm and wrist scoopers’ pain, tension from ice cream balls falling off of the cone, deep dip hip discomfort from leaning into the freezer, and the awful cross contamination of ice cream scoops being dipped in different flavors. The dangers of hard-packed ice cream are evident. We say “Put Down the Scoop” and save people from ice cream related accidents! This is why we are working with “People Against Ice Cream Related Accidents (PAICRA) to promote soft serve ice cream – the safer frozen treat!
Soft Serve is the safer choice! Put Down The Scoop!
In all seriousness, Frostline® Frozen Treats, is celebrating National Soft Serve Day, August 19. We invite operators to join us in a little fun centered on the benefits of serving soft serve ice cream over traditional hard packed ice cream. We created PAICRA, a fictional organization, to shine a light on scoop-related injuries and misfortunes. Utilizing social media, we plan to showcase humorous mishaps that often occur when scooping hard packed ice cream as well as encourage soft serve vendors to share stories or images with us and their followers. Other fun ways to celebrate National Soft Serve Day include hosting tallest swirl contests, offering discounts on soft serve, or highlighting new, unique flavor varieties.
Restaurants, frozen yogurt shops and other businesses who offer soft serve ice cream are encouraged by Frostline® to participate in the August 19 national holiday. We have limited supplies of t-shirts, posters, and product samples to support your efforts. Please leave us a comment on this blog and we will be in touch!
