Snowie Summit, Shaved Ice Business Training


So, you would like to start doing Shaved Ice as a business or expand what you are doing currently?

Well, one of the best ways to get started or expand is to attend a Free training that we hold once a year called the Snowie Summit. This year, we are hosting the event on February 5th-6th, 2015. In Salt Lake City

At this training, you will be taught by experts that have been in the Shaved Ice business for over 37 years. Their experiences will vary from those who have sold shaved ice from Carts, Kiosks, Buildings, the Snowie Bus, and more. Their venues are even more broad. These people will have done business at arenas, stadiums, schools, supermarkets, fairs, concerts, fundraisers, parks, sporting events, parties, and on and on.

In addition to those presenting, you will have the ability to rub shoulders with other attendees that have either been in the business for years or just beginning their new venture.

You will also be taught by experts who are in complimentary industries that you will most likely use in your business, like Insurance, Tax Advisors, Financing Providers, Payroll and HR Services, etc.

One of the highest requested items we have is hands on training. You will have hands-on training with all of our shaved ice equipment. Thus allowing you to evaluate it and decide for yourself which equipment you would like to use in your business.

That is one of the beauties in this business, and there are many, you can start your business on any level that you wish or on any budget that you have set for yourself.

If you were to purchase from a franchise, you are often required to purchase into the business, thus also meaning you need to start with the largest ticket item. Then you can expand from there. We do not subscribe to that. We feel that if you are wanting to do business and all you have is $3000 to get you started, we can get you going for that price. Obviously, you are going to be more successful if you have a professional looking stand and have a real presence, but if you need to work up to that point, that is perfectly understandable.

We are not a franchise. What I mean by that is we do not have large binding agreements. We do not charge Franchise Fees, we do not charge Royalties, we do not limit your location. In short, we do not sell “Blue Sky.” This is our term for selling air, or perceived value. Everything we sell has true, existing, physical value. Our goal is to remove much of the risk for you to start your shaved ice business. If you feel like this business is not working out, it is quite easy for you to sell your equipment and be very close to whole again. Everything we sell is of the highest quality and maintains a very high resale value.

We will train any one of you on a one-on-one basis, but due to high demand, we have implemented a group training. This has turned out to be an incredible experience for everyone attending. Not only is Snowie teaching you, but you are getting real world experiences from other equipment owners that you do not receive during a one-on-one training. The feedback, the stories, the experiences are all incredible and we look forward to hearing them each and every year.

This is simply the best place for you to get solid direction on how to start and where to take your Shaved Ice business. RSVP Today!

    Just wanted to ask if you would please provide flavor signs which would describe the unusual flavors such as Bug Juice, Godzilla, etc. to customers. In addition, if you could provide signage or small charts that would describe the ingredients of Snowie Naturals to potential customers. Lastly, I would like to be able to purchase blank inserts for satililite carts that I can personalize or customize with peel and stick letters. Ideally, I would like to place a customized order, but I realize that this may not be feasible. Looking forward to expanding my business with Snowie Naturals.

      I think these are great suggestions and we look into each of them. We have a form of velcro flavors that we have done for the naturals, so you can switch them out on Flavor Stations and Satellite carts. Doing this for our regular flavors has been in our list as well. The other charts and flavor descriptions we have done for you but not on the customer side. Let us look this over to see how we want to best approach it. I think it is a great suggestion.

    Hello Snowie, I know you are very busy,I would like to ask a few questions, I am interested in the bus, my question is; Do you have, new Chevy express vans on hand or in stock.if not I have one of your newest catalogs and you have the price of a new Chevy express for 26,500. My question is: would you be able to get me a van at that price + the other cost to finish the bus? How many blocks of ice does the cold plate freezer hold that comes with the bus? Thank You Very Much

      We have a few ways to respond to each request, so I am hoping that someone has already reached out to you.

      However, I am having Estela contact you via email with all of our current information and costs.

      If you do not hear from her quickly, please let me know and I will make sure that you speak with someone quickly.

      Thank you for your interest in Snowie,
