The Sno Shack Way

Since 1978 Sno Shack has been dedicated to creating the best shaved ice in the world. With Sno Shack’s Real Snow Block Ice Shaver you can make shaved ice that will melt in your mouth with every taste. Sno Shack’s unique blade setting allows three stainless steel blades to spin into the block of ice creating curls of soft snow, not crunchy shards of ice. When the ice is shaved, those little flakes form together just like packing a snow ball after fresh snow has fallen in winter. Imagine the perfect “snowman” snow that is wet, but not too heavy as to turn into a chunk of ice, and not too dry to fall apart. It is just the prefect consistency to build a snowman. Such snow is required to make shaved ice that will hold the flavor throughout the product instead of running off an icy top or sinking to the bottom leaving the product melted and watery. And speaking of flavors, Sno Shack offers a full line of traditional, tropical, and exotic flavors that provide endless combinations. With Sno Shack, you can make shaved ice that will keep your customers coming back time and time again!

    • We had a favorite customer, Berry (who has since passed away from cancer), who began his Sno Shack with the idea that he could cut costs and buy cheap flavors elsewhere. It didn’t take him long to call us and ask why he wasn’t making as much money as he thought he could. When we discovered he wasn’t using Sno Shack flavors we quickly sent him a sample pack and challenged him to test our flavors against the ones he was using. He immediately switched to Sno Shack flavors and told us that the cheap flavors he had been using just couldn’t compare to Sno Shacks!

We don’t joke when it comes to our product, we stand behind it 100%.

Do you only have time on the weekends to run a business? Or maybe a couple nights a week?

Even establish your Sno Shack as the treat to get at high school football games.

Sno Shack buildings are our favorite choice for street-side locations. From operating one in a small home-town to running a dozen in a larger city, your shack(s) will become the place to be!  Regulars will become people such as families looking for an affordable treat, date night desserts, busy moms driving thru so the kids don’t have to get out of the car, and just plain anyone needing a refreshing treat on a hot summer day! By operating your Sno Shack in the same location daily, your customers will come back time and time again!

“I love when repeat customers come to my Sno Shack. Garry always orders a large grape with extra syrup, and Natalie orders a small caramel cheesecake with ice cream on the bottom. Our customers love it when we remember what they like!” –Jessica, Idaho employee

Our shacks are great for places like water parks or shopping malls too!

Sno Shack concession trailers are perfect for towing to state fairs, air shows, water parks, sporting events and much more! Just stock your trailer with inventory and supplies and you will be ready to go anywhere!
