To give diners the option to fully customize their dessert, Sub Zero lets guests pick their own type of milk, flavors and mix-ins before ice cream is frozen before their eyes, using liquid nitrogen poured from steel tanks. Going beyond the spectacle of to-order freezing, the chain rolled out a new mobile app in November that includes both online ordering and access to coupons.
