Business Idea: Fresher than fresh snow cone

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ftfsnowcones/fresher-than-fresh-snow-cones
WHO WE ARE: We are Kansas City’s 1st all natural snow cone stand on wheels! We have reinvented the snow cone in order to please modern tastebuds that are looking for fun and refreshment without all the artificial stuff.

Our snow cone syrups are made from 100% natural ingredients without ANY artificial colors or flavors. We use as many organic and local ingredients as possible. FTF snow cones also happen to be gluten free, dairy free and fat free, so we have many regular customers with food allergies and dietary constraints that can enjoy this worry-free treat.

Fresher than Fresh is housed in a renovated 1957 Shasta trailer and our mascot, Snowie the Snow Cone is always standing by with a proud perma-smile. Currently, we park the trailer in a small urban green space in downtown Kansas City where customers can sit on a tree stump, enjoy the sunshine and drink in the natural goodness that is Fresher than Fresh!

WHY WE ARE FUNDRAISING: Much to our delight, our first summer in business was a success! We were fortunate to be featured in publications such as Food Network Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, Organic Gardening Magazine and BUST Magazine…so we can’t help but believe we are on the brink of something good. We just need some financial support to keep up with this positive momentum. The requested funds would help us afford equipment and renovations to our trailer that would enable us to expand our reach and take our refreshing all natural treats to farmer’s markets, weddings and many neighborhoods in Kansas City.

The $6,300 will be just enough to finish off the Shasta trailer…I’ve already invested all of my personal savings (and then some…) so I decided to give Kickstarter a try before approaching private investors. If we happen to receive more than 100% (fingers crossed!), anything extra will go toward building my ‘dream fleet’ – starting with the old ice cream truck that’s patiently sitting in my back yard…

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The immediate embrace of this business makes me believe that people are craving simple pleasures to balance the demands of our fast-paced, gadget-filled lives.
Seeing little kids sitting on a tree stump, enjoying a snow cone with their mom or dad makes me feel like everything is right with the world. It makes me feel like I’m doing my part to make life just a little bit happier. And to me, THAT is success.

Thank you for reading and thank you for your support!
