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

Statue of Liberty Concessions

Our company ran the concessions by the ferry going to the Statue of Liberty from the 100th Birthday of Lady Liberty in 1986 till shortly after 9/11 in 2001. We sold various Statue of Liberty Souvenirs, and fast food items. However, our number one item we sold to tourists going to the Statue of Liberty was Little Jimmy’s Italian Ice. We would outsell Haagen-Dazs 2 to 1 at the same price in our concession stand. People from all over the world would travel to see the Statue of Liberty in New York City and enjoy a Little Jimmy’s Italian Ice along the way.
