Moovers & Shakers, what's that?

A mobile milkshake truck. A soda parlor on wheels. Everything you loved about being a kid in one 16-oz cup of tasty, tasty treats. We believe in providing high-quality, super-delicious milkshakes and soda parlor drinks-- or as we like to call them, Moovers and Shakers. We believe customers are our neighbors and friends first-- and hey, that maybe all you hepcats have some wild ideas to share too. We believe in spontaneous water balloon fights, bike races, and dance-offs. We believe in movin' and shakin' and doin' the twist, ya dig?

Moovers and Shakers will serve the Nashville community starting May 2011. We have a basic menu of two milkshakes and two ice cream floats...

The Thunderbird: Vanilla Moover

The Impala: Chocolate Moover

The Cadillac: Coke Shaker

The Corvette: Root Beer Shaker

...plus some neat-o specialty drinks for a weekly themed menu.

PLUS, we want to infuse your day with a little fun with random acts of happiness called Scoops. Maybe we'll pass out water balloons with each purchase. Maybe Hayden will freestyle every order he takes. Maybe we'll call an impromptu dance-off. (Okay, that one's definitely happening!)

Oh man, how incredible! How can I help you achieve this greatness so that I can partake in milkshakes, ice cream floats, and overall fun?

Right? Thanks! 

First of all, thank you so much to everyone who has shown their support so far. It's been unbelievable and we can't even begin to put our appreciation into words. A lot of you have asked how you can help and, well, the thing we need most right now is money. See, we're trying to save money by buying an already converted ice cream truck, but even then, you still need all the equipment, licenses, health permits... it's a pretty sizable chuck o' change. So we could really, really use your help so that we could buy the truck. If you donate money, here's what it'll go towards:

  • Buying a converted ice cream truck
  • Repairs, maintenance, and paint
  • Getting our health permits so we can operate

We're trying to get everything up and running by May, so it's crunch time, people! LET'S GET THIS TRUCK ON THE ROAD!!

Alright, I'm super excited and ready to share this with all of my friends and family! What else can I do?!

We just launched our website! YEAH! Thanks to our friend/webmaster Kevin Crowl, you can now read all about our history, take a gander at our menu, and brag to all your friends that your name is on our website!

Check us out on Facebook! You can keep updated with what we're up to, find out when we launch our other social media pages, and best of all, suggest specialty drinks and Scoops activities that you want! WOW!

If you just can't get enough Moovers and Shakers, you can also peruse some of the articles people have written about us! MEOWZA!
