1st Ever Animated Testimonial

Recent Testimonial from one of our Customers in Texas. Here is the Video on YouTube Also.

“Dear Tom and the rest of the Little Jimmy’s family,

I wanted to write you guys an email about what an incredible business this has been and what the future looks like. This business has been a game changer for my family. My wife and I have been doing this since June 18 here in the Abilene, Texas area. It was great, but it has gotten better. Last month, I made more part-time than I did in my full time teaching job (over $4000). Last night, we did a minor league arena football team’s tailgate party and game. We SOLD OUT. In five hours from 5 to 10, we made about $1300. The baseball caps were flying off the table. I’ve got to place another order tomorrow. I charge $3, $4,and $5, but I give a little larger portions.

The guy in charge of concessions brought his catering truck from DALLAS (200 miles away) where he owns a restaurant right across from the new Dallas Cowboys stadium. He talked to me about bringing my cart ( I will need more) to his restaurant on game days, because he does a ton of business. It would be a lot of gas, but it would be unbelieveable sales. This summer, I will be operating in the mall of Abilene in a prime location for the months of June and July. If it goes as well as I think it will, I will ask for August as well. That will be incredible income. I have events lined up on almost every weekend in the other months, and will need to order more carts as the income from the mall pops in. I could be doing 2-3 events a weekend now be because of the groundwork that I have laid over the past months. My goal is to hire good college kids or husband and wife teams to take carts and work events, giving them base pay plus incentives and expanding my business tremendously. I know that there are risks involved, but I also know that there are really good people out there who need a job and would love to make good money part-time.

Thanks for creating a fantastic business that has changed the financial future of my family. By the way, my daughter and husband are going to be going to graduate school in Rochester, New York starting this summer. He is a physics major with a full tuition plus stipend scholarship and my daughter will have an opportunity to go to the Eastman school of music. Rochester is only a few hours from Elizabeth, so I will be coming up there to see you folks every now and then, and be able to write it off as a business trip, and go see my kids.

Sincerely yours,

Wayne, TX

Recent Testimonial From a Happy Italian Ice Sample Order

In starting a business, you increase your chances for success by offering something that others don’t. 5 years later, choosing Little Jimmy’s has proven to be a great decision.

My area has plenty of Snow-Cones, Snow Balls, Shaved Ice and Slushies offered all over the place, but no Italian Ice so I decided to bring it to the people.

It’s great not having to be inspected by Health Departments as it is a prepackaged product which is wonderful new to the ears of event organizers as I don’t require Temporary Food Establishment permits. Not having to acquire the permits also saves me money.

The Little Jimmy’s carts fit inside all doorways and on elevators making me accessible to everyone wherever they want to me to be. This has been a huge boost for business, especially when bad weather happens and events get moved in doors. Food Trucks can’t go inside, but I can. I’m often setting up inside schools in the cafeteria or close to the gym areas to get sales as people don’t want to go outside for food in bad weather.

The health benefits are a great sales driver. Parents approach and let me know their kids dietary and/or allergy restrictions and I’m often the only dessert there that their kids enjoy. The kids and parents light up like Christmas Tree’s with joy when I say it’s Dairy Free, Egg Free, Cholesterol Free, No High Fructose Corn Syrup, Fat Free, etc. Sales, Sales, Sales:)

The fitness enthusiasts love me when I say it is only 15 calories per scoop.

I worked a prepaid College event in my area along side another popular dessert vendor in my area. We both were paid by the school to serve the students and it was both of our 1st time being there. 95% of the students hopped in my line and didn’t leave. It was 2 hours of straight scooping. It got so bad the event organizer stood up and announced that the other vendor was beside me with their product if anyone wanted to not wait in line and not a single person moved. Once no one moved she told the other vendor “Ok, I tried” Word spread quickly how good the product was and the kids had to have it.

There is no downside to Little Jimmy’s business model. Great Product, Great Carts with Great Service makes an excellent business opportunity.

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.

Chef Q and A: Little Jimmy’s Italian Ice

Aug 25, 2011

What do you do when you need a little extra cash and your kids loved slushies?

For Donna Jackson, the answer was simple. She started her own Italian ice business. If you’re in the youth sports circuit, you may run into Jackson and her Little Jimmie’s Italian Ice stand, at least if Jackson has any say in it.

Here’s more.

How did you get into the Jersey slush business?

I was looking for an avenue to create additional income plus do something that my sons would also enjoy. My sons would always want a slushie, but I didn’t like the idea of all that syrup that would eventually settle to the bottom, so I found a healthier and tastier alternative.

How long have you been making these?

I don’t actually make it. I order it from New Jersey. I have had the business for three months now and am actively trying to get my name out there.

Are you from Jersey?

I am from the North but not from New Jersey. I was born and raised in Maine and moved to Melbourne in 2001.

Most of my background is in the medical field as an administrative assistant, but I always dreamed of owning my own business. After my husband sold his landscaping and lawn care business that he had for seven years, it was my turn to try entrepreneurship.

Because I had been active in sports, this business fits in perfect at the ball field.

What is Jersey slush? What makes it unique?

It is actually true Italian ice and serves like ice cream, unlike some Italian ice that you buy in a small cup and that is so hard you can’t eat it.

Shaved ice has all that sugary syrup all over it, and then the syrup settles to the bottom. My Italian ice is premixed and doesn’t separate. It has no fat or cholesterol and is only 15 calories per ounce.

AAARRRRGGGGHHH!

Pirate’s Italian Ice Cart

So, we did our first event on July 23/24 the Loganberry Festival near our home on Whidbey Island, WA. Not a huge event, but made $475 each day! We were thrilled. We charged $3 probably over scooped a bit to make the serving look like the signage. Sold a few hats, but were so thrilled and trying to talk to folks about so many things, that we forgot to really push them, but when we did (for $5) no one blinked an eye. For the two days, from 10-5pm, we sold 4 containers, sold out at least an hour before closing on day and could have made more money if we hadn’t given out such big samples! We’re working on that. One lady asked if we do weddings-we said “sure!”

 

We decided since we live on an island, we would do a pirate theme and sell “Shiver-Me-Timbers! Pirate Ice.” We dressed like pirates and it went over great. We must get into the talking like a pirate spirit though-LOL! Our family had a great time. Wad lines a few times, but for this, our “maiden voyage,” we were glad not to be “too” busy~! Just a nice stream of folks pretty constant after 11AM. Very pleased with our first event. And we are doing America’s night out this evening. Seems there are lots of events willing to let us get in later than we thought, as we got a late start this summer.

We made a small flyer in pirate talk to hand out that says we do events, openings, etc.

Will attach some pics of our “modded” cart. Hope you guys get a kick out of it!

Paula & Brian Fries

Quiz- How many ices scooped?

Quiz- How many ices scooped in 15 minutes?

Sign up here- This video is actually 15 minutes long- I sped it up 500% and reduced it down to 3 minutes. You can quickly see how many customers you can get in 15 minutes at an event.

Using some multiplication you can calculate the amount of customers over an hour or all day. Let me know how many customers you count in 15 minutes.This home business is a great franchise alternative

Many thanks to James Murphy from Indiana for shooting this video for us to use.   Little Jimmy’s Italian Ice
