Blenders are great for mixing milkshakes, smoothies and other blended beverages. An ice cream shop wouldn't be complete without counting on at least one (but probably two) blenders behind the bar. Why? Their versatility alone lets you easily expand menu options for customers without breaking the bank on additional products or other equipment. When purchasing a blender for your restaurant, consider what you intend to blend and how much—that will help you narrow down features like the power of your motor or if you need a quiet feature.
