Shave Ice Concession Business


Corona, CA

Family Shave ice concession business with great local clients who love our business model and customer service. My wife and I bought the business from another family in 2011 when we needed the business to supplement income. The previous owner was also a family in essentially the same position needing extra money to support needs. They sold to us when a career opportunity presented they couldn't pass on, which took away the time needed to operate the business effectively. Our two families still communicate to this day as the client onboarding and training period built a relationship that lasted the transition. This is a great opportunity for flexible income at extremely high margins. Shave Ice has the highest margins of any concession (direct to customer). We've done as much as $60,000 in as single 7 month season at 75% profit. All the equipment you could need is ready now...
