We have been so thrilled with the flavors from Sno Shack! Our customers are always commenting that we have the best flavors around… And they are always coming back for more!

Opening a Sno Shack has been a rewarding experience for me and my family. It is a lot of hard work, but the rewards are worth it.  We have learned how to start and run a business, established a gathering place which is the social hub of our community, we employ up to 20 teens each season, and not only have my children learned about hard work, they have been able to buy cars, have spending money, and they will also be able to pay for college.

My business partner and I have owned 1 Sno Shack for 6 yrs and opened #2 about 2 years ago. The customer support at Sno Shack is excellent and always goes above and beyond to be of assistance. As far as the concentrate flavors, the taste is so exact to the flavor, it’s unbelievable. We are constantly told by our customers that our flavors beat the competition hands down. Customers wish we could be open 12 months instead of 6 months. They anxiously wait for April/May to come around to get their first Sno Shack of the season. Each year we try to add a new flavor or two (we let the employees pick) to our offering. It’s always exciting as we gear up for opening! We love working with Sno Shack and look forward to another great season.

When we started our shaved ice business 5 years ago, we wanted to ensure that we used the highest quality flavors and the best shaver to make sure that our customers were getting the best shaved ice on the planet. Not only did we get both of these from SnoShack, but the machine was so easy to use because of the adjustable speed dial that we can easily train our employees. In addition, we have consistently had comments from our customers about the flavors being better than the competition and the shaved ice being just right that we will always make sure we stick with Sno Shack for our shaved ice needs.

Sno Shack has been an excellent company to work with! Their flavors and products are superior to the other companies that I researched. The customer service has been superb and they have gone above and beyond to answer any questions or address any concerns that I have had. I look forward to working with them for many more years to come.

We have been using Sno Shack flavors and block ice shavers for ten years. Sno Shack’s product quality surpasses any on the market. The shavers shave ice so fine it literally comes out as fluffy as snow. This allows the flavors to be fully absorbed into the ice and not flow over it to the bottom of the cone. Instead, it produces a soft, smooth texture which is very pleasing to the customer.

The flavors are the most natural tasting we have found. There are many to choose from, each resulting in a very authentic, flavorful product. We have hundreds of repeat customers because our snow cones are the best around, thanks to Sno Shack!

We love the Sno Shack team. In 2006, my family decided to start a shaved ice company in San Antonio, TX. There were really no shaved ice stands around town so I started a search for the best flavors, best buildings and the best support team and found them all at SnoShack. I tried every shaved ice stand in every town I passed through (and I travel a lot), and Sno Shack was hands down the best. I don’t say that because I bought a Sno Shack building and want to talk up their product. I had a clean slate and could have gone with anyone. I went with Sno Shack because they are the best.

There were a lot of obstacles to overcome, and still are many challenges today, but it sure is fun to know we started a business that is successful. We brought the best tasting shaved ice to San Antonio, Texas and our customers love us. There is no way we could have done this without the help and support of the Sno Shack support team. Jessica and Burt are the best and will help you with any issues or concerns you have. They aren’t just a support team, they are family. In fact we stopped in to say hi the last time we passed through Idaho on our way up to Yellowstone and Burt and his sweetheart took us to dinner.

I would be more than happy to discuss the issues with getting started in this business and to answer any questions you might have. Give me a call if I can help in anyway. I’ve had a few people fly down to San Antonio to look at our stores and how we do things, and I invite you to do the same. You can visit our web site at I wish you the best and hope to see you up and running someday. I truly believe shaved ice will be the next Starbucks type of business and it’s great to be on the front end of the wave. Hope you can join us.
