JL OR MANY, many years now, the soda fountain has been a favorite meeting and gathering place for teen-agers. Soft drinks and ice cream have been available at homes, but for teens the attraction has been those grand and glorious concoctions — with all the trimmings—and these usually were available only at the soda foxm- tain or ice cream parlor. But this is changing, and there is a new addition to rumpus rooms and playroom—the home soda fountain. In the Salt Lake area, it started about three years ago when an anxious parent was talking to a builder friend about teens staying away too late at nights. . THE BUILDER, who was then engaged in constructing a canyon resort building, had an idea. Why not, he reasoned, obtain some used sorla fountain equipment and install it in the troubled parent's family room ? The parent was willing to try the idea, so the builder went to work. Used fountain equipment was obtained from a supply company and was reconditioned. A smart backbar was built and ice cream parlor stools were installed along with a counter. The idea worked. The teen stayed home much more in the evenings, with friends drop- ~ ping in for the evening. They liked the soda fountain idea, particular!}' when they were able to experiment with new concoctions. "Yes, there was plenty of ice cream consumed, along with syrups and flavorings and nuts, but the parents figured it was well worth it," the builder recalled. . AND THE home soda fountain received'quite a play from the parents and their friends. Since that time other homeowners have taken up the idea and more and more home soda fountains are being installed. Such an installation costs from $800 to $3,500 depending on the size and the extra'trim- mings, which in some cases have included pizza ovens. Of course, the ice cream comes extra—but that can be obtained wholesale. Coif T oJro TV;V>i»ri« Hnrftr> T
