The Blue Angels

Below this video is a testimonial from a  customer from South Carolina. At the Charleston Harbor fest , Rodney and his daughters sold Little Jimmy’s Italian Ice from their ice cart while the Blue Angels soared overhead. The Blue Angels’ mission is to enhance Navy and Marine Corps recruiting efforts and to represent the naval service to the United States, its elected leadership and foreign nations. The Blue Angels serve as positive role models and goodwill ambassadors for the U. S. Navy and Marine Corps.

Just wanted to say Thank you and your family for getting me involved in the Italian Ice Business in 2006.Things have grown very well since then. So I thought I would tell you about a couple of events we have just done here in my town, Charleston SC. We have just done an air show with the Blue Angels, let me back up if I may. We started out that Sat. morning at the T-Ball fields with 2 carts full of Ice from 9:00 am until 12:00 then we sent the other 2 carts to the air show. 4 carts total working that day. Air Show started at 12:30 and ended at 3:00 PM, so in total my girls that work for me wanted to kill me for the slam we had that Saturday- LOL- We grossed $2750 for the day in about 5.5 hours of actual work, not bad huh, and this isn’t the first that we have done this. We are booked with YMCA and colleges through June and we are looking to book July very shortly. Again thank you for this opportunity to be with Little Jimmy’s Italian Ice. This real as it can get. Oh I about forgot after work I set up in my neighborhood from 5:00 pm to 6:00pm after school treats and we do min. $100 each evening the Ice cream truck has stopped coming to my neighborhood, what a hoot!

Take care-

Rodney from SC


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.
