About a Career as an Ice Cream Shop Owner

What could be more fun than opening an ice cream shop? As an ice cream shop owner, you will have the opportunity to sell a popular product that people love and have the freedom and flexibility of being your own boss.

You can make your ice cream business what you want it to be. You might decide to open an old-fashioned ice cream parlor that becomes a popular attraction for tourists, a scoop shop selling a high volume of take-out ice cream, or even a low-risk ice cream cart business.

You could aim to please many tastes by offering a wide variety of ice cream flavors in regular ice cream, or you might choose to specialize.

Maybe you imagine having a shop that offers specialty frozen dessert products such as super-premium ice cream, organic ice cream, exotic or ethnic ice cream, frozen yogurt or custard, or even gelato.

If you love to see people enjoying themselves, the ice cream business is for you, with the opportunity to make people happy every day.

The most rewarding aspect of being an ice cream shop owner is being able to do business with my family and friends around me all the time. When I was in the corporate world I worked away from everyone and by day’s end there really wasn’t much time left to enjoy family.
