    Hey guys, was reading some testimonials on some sites on how people are making over $1000/d just selling ITALIAN ICES!!!!
    http://italianice.net/italian-ices/italian-ice-testimonials/

    It's amazing and I'm thinking of getting myself 5-10 carts/workers (each cart is ~$1000 and the icee machine is $9000) and sending them to busy areas in NJ & NYC around the summer, may pay off. If I have 5 carts all in busy areas, say each cart makes $400/d (low estimate) everyday for the summer (3 months) - I take $200 per cart which = $1000/d doing nothing but supplying carts with ice cream - I may come out with $90,000 just in that summer. One bottle of italian ice base (the flavoring) can make 4 full buckets worth of italian ice (base cost = $30) and the amount each bucket can make is $300 give or take.

    I'm actually thinking of making a Clickbank product just on this, may get tons of sales who knows!!

    Watch this video to learn how it's done:

    Read the story of the PhillySwirl guys. Real nice guys that did similar and now sell to Walmart and Sams (or used to). I still have a picture of Mya (his first born daugher) that Alex sent me over 10 years ago still hanging on the wall. We talked a lot when they first started out. Still wishing them the best. I'm sure Mya is close to a teenager now.

    Not sure how it works in the States but theres some pretty tough guys in the UK who dont let random Joes turn up at " quality real estate" that they feel is their territory. I reckon you might get a tap on the shoulder for rent fairly quickly.

    This idea is very profitable... Did something like this (but with ice cream trucks) a while back. The upfront costs can be a tough obstacle though.

    Does this apply to the guys selling the old school ice cream bars. Can it be as profitable by cutting the start up costs of the machine you think? 9k, tho worth it but yeesh. Figure get a used cart, get the bars from a wholesaler club IE Costco or SAMs or Jetro. I'm sure the return won't be the same as using a mix and pumping out much servings.

    If it wasn't profitable, no one would do it. As someone already mentioned, you have to have some start up money though, but if that is what you want to do, then do it. However just writing a ebook about it is a bit watered-down entrepreneur spirit no?

    Looks pretty simple and profitable. Thanks go the share.
    The upfront cost for the machine is what stumps me.

    Here in Ontario there are $10k grants that are given out for minors starting small businesses. People even get money for opening up LEMONADE STANDS. It looks like $10k could cover just about all the costs here!
