Sno Shack's shaved ice is smarter than the average snow cone. With 80 flavors, ranging from Tiger's Blood to Mai Tai, the company's ice treats sell at beaches, swap meets, concerts--almost anywhere people gather.
Sno Shack first appeared on the concession-stand scene in 1978 after founder and president Cheryl Lewis saw a shaved ice business operating in an abandoned train ticket office. Convinced there was a market for a mobile shaved-ice stand, Lewis opened her first Sno Shack location. "We were so well- received that first summer, we were able to set up eight more [locations] by the following [season]," says Lewis. Sno Shack now has about 1,200 stands nationwide and distributors in seven countries.
Entrepreneurs who own ice cream or yogurt shops can add Sno Shack's fat- and cholesterol-free shaved ice treats to their product lines for $2,300, which includes a warranted shaver, exclusive flavors and other supplies.
Those interested in a larger investment can purchase Sno Shack's turnkey business opportunity package for $13,500. This includes Sno Shack's mobile steel building with its self-contained water system, sinks, holding tanks, and indoor and outdoor signs, as well as all other necessary supplies. Sno Shack owners receive training manuals, videos and technical support.
