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.
