Snowie has become very well known for their unique stands, especially the Snowie Bus. This Food Truck / Shaved Ice Truck / Shaved Ice Bus, however you would like to refer to it, is attractive to everyone as a business concept, but there are a handful of people out there that love the look of the bus, but do not have any need for a full vehicle. We have had requests from customers, especially those who own a static location like amusement parks, water parks, etc., for a stationary version of the Bus. These type of places have many people come to visit them on a daily basis and do not have the need to go out and serve the people in a neighborhood, park, event, party or something similar. For these types of customers, we have created the Snowie Stationary Bus!
This bus eliminates much of the cost of the vehicle it is built on. While we still use the frame of a Chevy Astro Van, we remove the guts of the vehicle to make this a mobile stand much like our other concession stands/shaved ice stands. It is heavier than our other stands, so you will need a proper vehicle to tow it from location to location.
The Stationary Bus is built very similar to the Snowie Bus. By default, we wire the Stationary Bus with 110 volt wiring, whereas our regular busses are built to run most of their equipment on 12 volt power. You do, however, have the option to choose which type of power you would like in your stand. The Stationary Bus comes with the same health code loving water system, shelving, coating, flooring as our regular bus. It also sports the same flavor station as its original counter part.
Because we take everything out of the vehicle on the stationary bus, this allows us a bit more room to do other things. For instance, the cab where you would normally drive, is now where we put all of the back-end equipment. This gives you more working space back where it is needed.
In the Stationary Bus, you do walk on ground level and serve while you are standing like you would do in any traditional stand. In our regular Snowie Bus the floor is atop the floor of the vehicle, so you are off the ground a bit. We have set this system up so you can serve while you are sitting and, therefore, face to face with your customers. This is high on our priority, we believe it is important to be able to work and serve your customers at face level.
