Sigma Phase, Corp. announced today ColdSnap™ for Business, a rapid freezing appliance with personalized single servings of premium ice cream, frozen yogurt, frozen cocktails, smoothies, and frozen coffee in about 90 seconds. ColdSnap for Business is a Keurig/Nespresso-style machine for ice cream and other frozen confections that lets stores and businesses offer their customers and employees delicious frozen confections in individualized servings, on-the-spot, free of messy preparation and cleanup.

Ideal for Convenience Stores, Airports, Spas, Car Dealers, Hotels, Offices, Breakrooms, Cafeterias in Hospitals and Universities & Other Businesses – No Plumbing or Installation Needed

Perfect as an employee or customer perk/incentive or to generate revenue through the continuous sale of pods, the ColdSnap for Business machine uses its patented Rapid Freezing Technology to instantly freeze ambient temperature product in single-serving recyclable ColdSnap Pods. Businesses, such as convenience stores, airports, spas, car dealers, hotels, caterers, and other offices and businesses, can quickly place a ColdSnap machine on a table, desk, or countertop without the need for installation. No freezing, preparation, cartridges, filters, clean up, or plumbing is required — as is currently needed with other frozen confection and beverage machines.

Made for Continuous Heavy Duty Commercial Use – No Re-Cooling Needed

ColdSnap for Business is robustly made for heavy duty continuous commercial use. The ColdSnap system produces multiple consecutive frozen confections without requiring a time-consuming re-cooling phase. The machine accepts shelf-stable, ambient temperature ColdSnap Pods, then repeatedly freezes and dispenses the contents of the Pods. To set up, simply place the ColdSnap machine on a table or countertop;  plug the system into an electric socket; insert the desired ColdSnap Pod; and follow the on-screen instructions. In approximately 90 seconds, your clients, customers, or employees will enjoy delicious ice cream for an enjoyable pick-me-up.

40% Smaller Ice Crystals than Store Bought for Amazing Tasting Ice Cream –
Eliminates Traditional Cold Supply Chain

ColdSnap’s cutting-edge freezing technology creates micro-sized ice crystals that are 40% smaller than store-bought products, guaranteeing ColdSnap’s amazing taste and the smoothest texture possible. Since ColdSnap Pods are shelf-stable and can be shipped at ambient temperature, the system is independent of the expensive, unreliable, and environmentally unfriendly cold chain that is in current use to bring factory-frozen ice cream and other frozen products to market. Through the ColdSnap system, ice cream can now be shipped directly to stores and offices without the use of dry ice or cold storage, reducing the costs traditionally associated with shipping frozen ice cream.


ColdSnap for Business machines and Pods will be available for purchase through the ColdSnap website at and at select retail locations. In addition to the business version, a ColdSnap version will also be available for home use. Other food and beverage categories will be introduced in 2021.

The ColdSnap Story

When nightly bedtime stories grew dull for Matt Fonte and his two daughters, they decided to swap magic tree house and fairytale princess books for a more creative past-time: invention journals. Topping the list of potential inventions: a better ice cream machine for at-home use without all the hassle. His daughters envisioned a Keurig®-style machine that could generate ice cream immediately without a mess. This inspired Fonte, a serial entrepreneur, who saw great potential in the idea.

To execute this invention, Fonte formed Sigma Phase, Corp. in October 2018 in Massachusetts, with the singular objective to transform the way frozen confections were produced, transported, purchased, and enjoyed. The Company has assembled a first-class team, and together, they are moving quickly to create something exciting that doesn’t exist on the market today. ColdSnap’s patented technology has the promise to disrupt the massive global ice cream market with its delicious, personalized, frozen confectionery experience, including in geographies where the cold chain is weak and unreliable.  For more information, please see the website:
