Little Jimmy’s Italian Ices Is A Big Biz Hit!

logo

Little-JImmys-IceLittle Jimmy’s Italian Ices, a family owned business from Iselin, New Jersey, is Italian Ice made the old fashion way. “We have been making our delicious and wholesome Italian Ice since my grandfather Ralph started the business in 1957,” said Michael Maglione Jr. “We do not use automated machinery or high fructose corn syrup when making our ice. We offer a great business opportunity for anyone, regardless of experience, to have fun and make real money with this part time business. Just look what one of our customers has to say.”

“There is an actual letter from a customer, Ed and Karen Hensas in Idaho Falls, Idaho. After two years selling Little Jimmy’s Italian Ices, they came out to New Jersey to meet us and tour the factory,” said Mr. Maglione.

“We originally saw Little Jimmy’s Italian Ices in 2010 in Small Business Opportunities Magazine. We made some calls and did the ‘homework’ for starting the business, but due to other circumstances let the opportunity pass. We both had our regular jobs and continued on. In June of 2013, we were both working for the same company and both lost our jobs at the same time. They way that our jobs were eliminated did not even allow us to collect unemployment.

“Ed had a life insurance policy that we decided to cash in, in order to buy our Little Jimmy’s Italian Ice cart. Since we were a long way from the east coast where Italian Ice is very well known, we ordered a single 3-gallon can of Lemon Ice. First, we wanted to sample it to see that it was authentic and second to try it out at a couple large community gatherings. IT WAS A HIT!

“We sent our money in to place our initial order and received our cart and supplies within a week, and the ice came a few days later. This business has become so successful that it allowed us to pay our bills and keep ourselves going without a regular 9-5 job. It is a seasonal business because of the cold weather and lack of events in our area. We are however booked into a big Christmas Expo which will be held indoors.

“This business has allowed us to keep the household running and help our children when needed. We are looking to get another Little Jimmy’s cart and are even expanding into other types of food that we can sell all year long. This fact is ironic as my husband had mentioned several times (even years ago back in NJ) that we should start some type of food business and I always said no because of too many regulations and health codes. It seems that Italian Ice is pretty much exempt from a lot of the strict health codes in many areas, so it’s the best of both worlds,” said Ed.

Hi Mike and Nancy

Just to let you know we got the ice and we love it. We participated in The Junkanoo summer festival on weekends for the last three weeks and it was a success. The tourist loved it and many of them were amazed that Little Jimmy’s was in The Bahamas. Plenty of them took photos

To wrap it up we were the show stopper as we beat the competition.

I have a question for you.

What flavor can I add rum to and how should it be done?

look forward to our continued business relationship.

Once again thank you.

Nine Year Old Italian Ice Owner Interview- Jack Frost Italian Ices

9 Year old Businessman Jack of Jack Frost Italian Ices stopped by the Little Jimmy’s headquarters in Elizabeth, NJ with his dad and uncle today.

Bringing smiles back to Athens, one scoop at a time.

That’s the business plan of eight-year-old Jack Henry Barrett, who opened up an Italian ice cart in Teaoga Square in Athens Borough last week with the help of his father, Ed Barrett Jr.

Jack Frost Ice, which features Little Jimmy’s Italian ice products, came about after the Barretts – including Jack’s mother Deanna, who owns the nearby Urban Connection salon – wanted to find another way to bring people back to the recovering business district hit hard by flooding in September. It seems to be working, Ed Barrett said.

“So far, it’s been a great response,” he said, adding that the business already has “a lot of repeat customers in such a short time” since the stand opened for business last Wednesday.

Jack “has been a businessman since he could count change,” Barrett said. With the help of his father, family friend Mary Johnston and other adults, Jack scoops the ice, stocks supplies and keeps the stand clean.

The Barretts decided to purchase a Little Jimmy’s pushcart cart because of its low overhead and to fill a need left open this summer with the fate of nearby D and R Ice Cream in question after the flood, Barrett said. The Athens borough council granted the Barretts permission to serve the frozen treats in the square last week.

In the News Again – Reno, Nevada

In the news Again- around the 1:17 mark- Little Jimmy’s Push Cart keeps the Italian Ice cold all day- even in the heat of Reno Nevada

reno nevada Italian Ice  in the news again

reno nevada Italian Ice in the news again

All week we’ve been showing people ways to keep themselves and their homes cool.

A good way to cool off is a nice hop in the Truckee River, something a lot of people did all day Friday.

“It’s hot out today,” says Takiya Smith, visiting from Hawaii. “Like, ‘Oh my God’ hot. And I didn’t know that it got this warm here. And so the water, it feels great.”

Record-breaking temperatures are tough to handle if you’re stuck without air conditioning. Parents, kids and the family pets all hopped into the water.

The Truckee River may be chilly, but folks say it feels pretty refreshing with the sun beating down.

“It’s icy cold, but when you get out, you feel much better and it’s very relaxing, and it’s nice to be out here with all the kids and it’s a beautiful place,” says Chandra Peckham.

With temperatures set to hit triple digits this weekend, you can expect Wingfield Park to be packed on Saturday and Sunday.

Never Did See One Kite in the Air

Kite Festival Italian Ices

Kite Festival Italian Ices

Italian Ice Testimonial Received Sun, Jun 2, 2013 at 10:54 AM

Just wanted to share a look into our first $1,500 day. It was a Kite
Festival held here in Reno annually.
Their 4th, our 1st.

Turnout last year was about 3,500 but don’t have the numbers for this
year yet. It was about 80 degrees that day and I brought 350 bottles of
water as well, but due to line like shown in the picture, I didn’t even have
time to get them out of the van. Next to us was CocaCola with 240 btls
of water and they sold out by 2 pm.

The line shown in the pic was indicative of my non stop serving from 10:15
(for a 11 am start) until 3:50 when I finally stood up straight. Never did see
one kite in the air.

Last year we booked 11 events and this year we have 64 lined up through
October 15th.

Love Little Jimmy’s Italian Ices.

Summer Jobs – New Testimonial

Hi Dennis, I just want to let you know how our first adventure in the Italian Ices business went. Well, we were asked to shown up at a Relay for Life event in Lincolnton, NC on a Friday afternoon. The event started at 6p.m. with the expectation of the vendors setting up no later than 5p.m. Since this was our first event, we took more than we thought we would need (cups, spoons, napkins, Ice etc.). The setup went very smooth even though I was very nervous. I had purchased the ice cream bag Anthony displayed in his video and let me tell you, that thing kept my extra cans of ice cold and in excellent state all evening. People loved the fact that I wore gloves and cleaned my flat surfaces constantly. They loved the free samples even more.

The night was a constant scooping extravaganza. The lines were not terribly long, but they sure were steady (I actually scoop a blister onto my index finger). We did very well (almost breaking $1000) for the five hours we scooped even though there was a “soft ice cream” vendor three sections down. Everyone raved about the smooth texture and sweet flavor of the ice. The flavor was just right…not too sweet or overpowering. We were asked to come back next year.
We have a boat show to do this Saturday (saw them setting up the signage and dropped off a card) that will include four live bands, and various recreations. We also have a huge 2-day festival to do the week after. I just want to say that I am thrilled to be a part of Little Jimmy’s Italian Ices. Thank you for a great product!
