KFC: Kentucky Frozen Concessions

“Hello Anthony and Dennis:

We just finished our 1st big event and it lasted for 6 days .  It was a county fair and horse show in Kentucky.  There were several children and some people were talking about the cost and comparing it to a shaved ice so we came up with a 2 scoop serving that we sold for 2 dollars and called it a “child size” and we sold several of those in addition to the normal 3 dollar size and several baseball helmets.

We had so much fun, but we were really tired…it was very hot.  I have attached some pictures of some of the police officers that loved Little Jimmy’s Italian Ices and one little boy that was competing in the horse show…he did win 1st place in his category and ate a lot of blueberry ice when he was done competing (he would come up at stick out his tongue and say what flavor do I want).  One of the police officers is originally from New York and he told everyone how great our product was and how it made him homesick.

I gave a quote today to our local hospital for an event that they are having for there major donors in October.  This event will consist of the movers and shakers in my community and could lead to a lot of corporate/employee events.  I also am talking to some Wal-Marts about setting up with them.

Thanks for all the advice and help.  We are loving it…I have wanted this cart for 5 years and now my dream is coming to reality and it is even better that I dreamed it would be.

Take care,

Happy Fourth Of July

Happy 4th of JULY!!!

I am a new dealer for Little Jimmy’s Italian Ice and worked my first event on June 27th & 28th of 2009. I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with your product, service, and most importantly, our customer satisfaction. The event I worked was in Nashville, TN where most people are not familiar with Italian Ice, but we still served over 800 customers even though the weather was not favorable.

I was amazed at how many people we had who previously lived on the East Coast who were familiar with both New Jersey Ice and Little Jimmy’s quality products. We had another Italian Ice competitor about 45 yards from us in this event, and we had customers who bought from both of us. I received several unsolicited comments that our product was far superior to the product served by our competitor. (Repicci’s – A Franchised Product manufactured in TN) We had 2 vendors who walked all the way back to our booth in the hot sun after purchasing our competitor’s product. They asked us to throw their purchase from our competitor in our trash, and placed a replacement order with us. That blew my mind!

I had fun with our customers and would always ask them to taste the product to see if they liked it before leaving our booth. All responses were overwhelmingly positive that produced huge smiles. I usually asked them if they liked it as well as ice cream, and without exception the response I received was:  “Better!”  I was also amazed over how many requests I had for Chocolate that I had not included in my initial order. I could not be more pleased with the superior quality of your product.

We had numerous repeat sales, especially from other vendors working the show. This allowed us to outsell the competition by a minimum of 4 to 1. Most of the time our competitor’s booth was completely empty while we still had people lined up.

Quality does matter, and our experience proves people will line up for high quality foods! Thanks for such a great product and for doing such a great job!

Best regards,
