Warmer Weather Means Warmer Sales for Kona Ice

The last month of unseasonably warm weather hasn’t just pleased outdoor enthusiasts. Some frozen-treat quick-serve operators found that the warmer weather translated into higher sales.

Shaved ice concept Kona Ice, in particular, saw revenues go up more than 50 percent in March compared with the same month last year.

Tony Lamb, founder and president of Kona Ice, says the concept has enjoyed a significant bump in interest from potential customers this spring. The mobile concept succeeds largely by leasing trucks out to events like fundraisers, parties, and sports.
