Consulting


We Have A Wide Range Of Consulting Services To Fit Every Need And Help Your Ice Cream Dreams Come True

You have the concept, drive, and passion to get your ice cream or frozen dessert business off the ground, you just need someone to hold your hand for a little while.  After working in this industry for over 15 years and teaching literally thousands, perhaps tens of thousands, the art of opening and growing their own Ice Cream or Frozen Dessert businesses, I have learned that the needs of entrepreneurs requiring information can be many and varied.

The Hour of Power

The questions that ice cream entrepreneurs and operators have about this industry can be many and varied and sometimes can be covered in a single hour over the phone with an industry expert. The Hour of Power is designed to maximize the impact of a single hours consultation over the phone with a submission of questions and topics prior to the call.  It is a great way to cover a lot of information in a short amount of time without committing to a long term consulting agreement. If, after the initial consultation call, you want to continue with any of the below mentioned consulting packages, the cost of the “Hour of Power” is deducted from your consultation package, providing you with flexibility to continue the support process without spending any more time or money.

“The Hour of Power”  – $200.00
