Stoelting Foodservice to Appear on Discovery Channel Show

Upcoming episode of Machines: How They Work takes an inside look at Stoelting’s F231 Gravity Soft Serve/Yogurt Freezer

Stoelting Foodservice, a division of The Vollrath Company and manufacturer of frozen dessert equipment, today announced its F231 Gravity Soft Serve/Yogurt Freezer will be a featured product in an upcoming episode of Machines: How They Work airing 10:32 p.m. (EST) May 12 on the Discovery Science Channel.

“We are very excited to be a part of the Discovery Channel program,” said Rich Koehl, general manager of Stoelting Foodservice. “The F231 machine is one of our most popular models, dispensing two flavors individually or combined as a twist and can be found in self-serve ice cream shops across the United States and around the world.”

Filmed at Stoelting’s headquarters and manufacturing plant in Kiel, Wisconsin, the episode reveals with computer generated imagery, or CGI, how the numerous F231 machine components are built, assembled and tested. The episode also highlights the F231 in a real-world application by exploring a Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt shop in nearby Manitowoc, Wisconsin.

The 30-minute episode highlighting Stoelting, along with two other manufacturers, seeks to reveal the answers to the following questions about a product each company produces:
•    How does a frozen yogurt maker convert gallons of liquid into fluffy frozen dessert? – Stoelting Foodservice in Kiel, Wisconsin
