San Francisco is about the only city in America that doesn’t get stifling hot in the summer, and even there, citizens see  a few days in the steamy nineties. In the South and Midwest, hot temperatures last almost unbearably for months, and whole businesses flourish by combating these seasonal trends. Air condioning repairmen, water parks, and travel agencies see most of their business by offering an escape from the heat. It isn’t a business model that functions year round, but these temperature combatants can prove exceptionally lucrative during the warmest months of summer. Smaller businesses can also make money fighting the heat, and many see profits grow with the simple decision to buy a snow cone machine. Appealing to the appetites of children and the nostalgia of adults, snow cones remain a profitable item to sell, especially during the warmest weeks of the year.

Only $489.99!

They’ve been a staple for concessions stands and boardwalk vendors for decades, but really any business can buy a snow cone machine and implement it into their menus. Unless your business operates in the tropics, snow cones don’t have to be offered all year: they can be served for only a few months from a patio kiosk or put on the menu as a seasonal treat. More refined establishments, too, can buy a snow cone machine and retain their elegant reputation. “Italian shaved ice” or granita can be marketed instead of the campier “snow cone,” since people of any socioeconomic background can enjoy the desserts.

After the investment of the the initial machine, the cost of production is infinitely less than most menu items. Blocks of ice are incredibly inexpensive, and the syrups, creams, and other adornments cost very little to keep on hand. It’s a timeless treat that everyone loves, and it’s effortless to market when the temperatures outside are soaring.

Though summer may be officially over, the summertime temperatures continue to soar in the South (and other parts of the US as well). Ultimately, right now would be a wonderful time to buy a snow cone machine for your home or your business and hang on to summer a little longer.
