We want summer 2014 to be the summer Sandcastle gets a soft serve ice cream machine. Many of you asked about ice cream cones, we had originally planned on cones, and now we hope to bring you ice cream cones and more!
Serving a wide range of fun and healthy food made from scratch right on the beach was truly a pleasure last summer. The dog flicker (hot dog with kimchee and an egg), octopus and shrimp ceviche, the classic BLT, and cheese curds are a few of the things we produced. We were very appreciative to receive great support from the neighbors and community at large and we are more than excited to deliver the same great food this summer!

Adding a soft serve ice cream machine will allow us to move from solely having prepackaged novelty ice cream into cones, toppings, and more. Vanilla with olive oil and sea salt is a classic treat! There are many other ideas bouncing around like...
- fruit toppings
- sprinkles of all flavors and types
- breakfast cereal toppings
Sandcastle will be at Lake Nokomis for nine more years (and more if we are lucky!!). That’s why we were happy to invest in the remodel of the MPRB concession building. It needed a lot of work to be up to code but is now a beautiful asset to the Minneapolis parks of which we are proud. While our resources went to the structure we cut out some costs and were left with a sad space on the shelf where the ice cream machine was meant to be!
Support us now and enjoy this summer! Our fun rewards will get you outside enjoying one of the cities greatest lakes, eating good food, playing with the Nokomis ducklings or spotting our neighborhood eagle. We will even have new seating in 2014 thanks to the MPRB! You can only win investing in summer fun!
Risks and challenges
When this project is funded we will purchase the soft serve ice cream machine. We have already spoken with a vendor and selected the machine type. The concession building was built with the plan of having a machine like this and so we do not foresee any significant challenges or risks.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
