Leanne from Kentucky First Year selling Italian Ice

This is probably one of the longest videos we have ever received at Little Jimmy’s Italian Ices. I sometimes edit these videos to under five minutes, however in this case I thought it would be interesting to see the entire video from a customer’s point of view. Everything from getting the cart and setting it up, to attending an event, and the actual event itself. First half of the video has to do with Italian Ice. The second half of the video is all about the air show that Leanne was watching while selling Little Jimmy’s Italian ice. As an Italian ice vendor, you get a front Row seat to cool events that you attend. Leanne observed Helicopter rescues, Fighter Planes flying overhead, parades, all while working- something you certainly cannot do from behind a desk! If you are interested in selling italian ices also give us a call at 800 763-4348 and we will help to get you started.

Earth Day 2010

Below this video is a testimonial from a new customer from Oregon. At the Portland Earth Day Event, Blakely sold Little Jimmy’s Italian Ice and had no time to shoot any video. I decided to search YouTube and found several videos from the event where I discovered her ice cart.  You can see her Italian ice pushcart before and after the guy in the Bear costume falls over. Don’t blink- you may miss her pushcart!

We had our first event this Saturday! I unfortunately couldn’t be there because my work schedule wouldn’t allow it, but my business partner and my neighbor were able to participate. This was a 1 day event celebrating earth day this past Saturday (April 24th). We wanted to start with a 1 day event to get our feet wet and see how things would go and to see how well the ice would do. I know you guys are always getting that same old question…..will the ice melt if there isn’t a cold plate? I will be the first to say that I was one of those people. The ice did awesome! We took it out about 4 hours before the event and it scraped perfectly! I don’t know how many people across the nation are familiar with Oregon’s weather, but it rains here A lot, especially in the late winter to late spring months and Earth day wasn’t any exception. My business partner started at 10:00 in the morning for this event. (Event was 10-7) I called around 1:30pm and she said that she had only sold 7 smalls and was really worried. I told her not to worry, the guys at Little Jimmy’s says that they (people) will come. I called again at 3:30 and didn’t get an answer. I finally got a call back a little later and was told there isn’t any time to talk, that they had lines.
Unfortunately we weren’t able to get any video because there were only two of them, one scooping and one taking money. When I got to the event at 6:30 to help close up they told me that they were busy from 2:00pm until 6:00pm.
On our first event we took in $843!!! That’s about $200 an hour for the 4 hours that they were busy!!! My business partner told me that she had a ton of people walk buy saying that if it was warmer and not raining they would buy some. She told me that we will need more people to help when it get hots, because if there were lines of people in the rain waiting to buy Little Jimmy’s she can’t even imagine what it will be like when it’s summer time! We did almost a $1000 in the rain! I’m so excited!!! Our next event is on May 8th at a street fair. I’m hoping for good weather I would love to see what is going to happen on a hot day! Thanks again guys for all of your help and support.
