Shaved Ice Lemonade question

Although I can not take credit for developing it, I now have an excellently wonderful shaved ice lemonade recipe that is far better than the competition. My question relates to flavoring options.

Re: Looking for advice in selling at schools

Thanks to all. I have been in this business for more years than some of you have been alive but I always recognize that other people often times have the answers I need to succeed. I appreciate more help on this matter and as always am willing to offer whatever bit of wisdom God has granted to me.

Re: Looking for advice in selling at schools

Bruce, I am just learning how to market on social media myself. I am FAR from an expert (although I do have a marketing background - pre social media). One thing I have found is that there are many companies and other individuals who are willing to take lots of your money to do things that you can e...

Looking for advice in selling at schools

Our family has been selling this treat for over 70 years as it passed from generation to generation. My wife has now taken the business to the next step as we attempt to break into the Centr...

Re: Shaveicesupplies.com Current Specials!

Lily currently comes only in medium. Since small is our most popular size, we made the flower and blossom design in small only. If you tried the new blossom cup, you may like the design lay out more than the lily since it has a wider base which lets you sit on the table. My issue is that I have 3 s...

I'll be needing to place an order for flower and/or lily cups very soon. On that note, do you have different sizes of the lily cups?

Re: Kona Ice

I have no issues with Kona, but I am curious on one thing. Since you have a limited territory (of whatever size), how much do you feel the hit when a competitor comes in and aggressively goes after the same people you market to? For instance there are only so many schools and daycares in your territ...

Re: New to the business

Snowie sells a bike version. I think I recall when they had their Summit that they can also put a motor on the bike.

Re: Ice cream

Are you going with the truck mounted flavor station or the stand alone? They both have their advantages but for me, having the 10 flavor unit attached to the truck was the way to go.
