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.Julie
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 comeSean
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!Lloyd & Debbie
