About this project
Hawaiian Shaved (or Shave) Ice is a non-dairy dessert made by shaving a block of ice which produces a very fine snowy ice - this extremely fine texture absorbs various flavored syrups- unlike snow cones that mostly hold flavors in the outer edges.
Flavors and Toppings
Our list of flavors have expanded over the years and we are constantly thinking of new mixes and flavors to keep your sweet tooth craving more. We have all the traditional favorites along with our own unique blends.
Yeti's Brew - This is a mystery mixture that changes throughout the summer
Yeti's Blood- Our own take on the famous Tiger's Blood
Blue Raspberry- Most popular single flavor
"The Yeti" - This is our signature serving that will make your kids go nuts. It is Blue Raspberry shaved ice topped with Marshmallow fluff and York Peppermint Bits.
Our goal, through this Kickstarter campaign, is to raise money to help us buy either a trailer or a truck. A mobile unit would immediately grow our business by giving us the opportunity to offer our product to a broader community. In reality the cost of such a unit will be higher than the goal we have set here but we hope to use this campaign as a way to handle a majority of it and hopefully the final number raised will be an even greater number when all is said and done.
Here are two mobile unit options which would help us grow and keep your kids happy.
We have enjoyed serving at all of our local locations. Here are some examples of our (not so mobile) set up.
We have been serving at camps, parties and events for two summers now and are thrilled with the opportunity to expand and offer our product to a broader customer base. With a truck or trailer we will be able to regularly serve many more summer camps, neighborhoods, urban areas, private parties, sporting events, festivals...etc.
If we can become mobile, Yetis will be available to everyone, starting in the Washington DC area and hopefully expanding where ever a cold refreshing dessert is needed.
Trust us - kids are just happier when Yeti is in their lives. Take a look at this great drawing by one of our most loyal fans.

When you hear this Old Timey Americana piece around the DC Metro Area on a hot and humid summer day, you will know it's time to be cooled down by an ice cold YETI.
Teddy the Yeti - Our friend and Mascot
Teddy the Yeti knows a little something about traveling the globe and the importance of being mobile. He just entered his 108th year of life and doesn't look a day past 25. You can see his complete story in the bio section but if there is one thing we have learned from Teddy, it's never stop moving and never stop growing. Maybe you can spot Teddy the Yeti this summer as he helps us serve in Maryland, Virginia and DC.
In the last two years we have had a lot of help and would like to thank certain individuals for their creative and moral support.

Risks and challenges
There will always be issues with getting a mobile business up and running. It's the big craze around the country right now but that doesn't mean it won't have it's own headaches.
After purchasing the right mobile unit we will have to apply for all the proper licenses and permits in each state and county we plan to serve. We will then have to pass health code inspections which shouldn't be an issue but will most likely require more equipment we do not own. We planned for these added expenses and should be able to cover costs.
Obstacles and road blocks will be dealt with as they arise but with the support of our customers and fans, we will be able to drive around those obstacles in our new Yeti Truck (or Trailer)!
