    Howdie to you all.

    I just recently opened up a little Ice cream shop right in the middle of the goldfields. region of central Victoria.

    So always on the lookout for exciting new products to compliment the ‘icecreamery’ theme and ideas that I can put into practice.

    And if I can help somebody else along the way that’ll please me no end.

    Oh yeah, why the monitor “Totally Awesome”? Well the shop is called “Totally Awesome Stuff”. lol

    How fantastic for you – most people love ice cream and I bet in an area like that you are going to hear some wonderful stories and perhaps some tall tales.

    Enjoy Flying Solo

    I’m good at tall tales… and I’ve heard some whoppers in my life time too. lol

    Hope to gain some new skills… and pass on some old ones.
    (And keep people like you (and the service you provide) in the back of my mind)

    Good choice with Banana. I do a mean Banana Choc – just with that hint of delicious chocolate.

    I love ice-cream too. You know the one thing about ice-cream. When you are finished you are always thirsty…

    Why don’t you try an ice-cream and water combo??? Just an idea.

    Or make sure you give everyone a serviette with every ice-cream. They will remember you for it.

    You could also introduce a ice-cream loyalty card. List all the different flavours and they can cross them off to work towards a free ice-cream.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE ice-cream!

    Welcome to flying solo too.

    If you ever need a taste tester or anything like that be sure to let me know.

    PS I was previously worked at Wendy’s for 6 years as a store manager, so I’m a true fan of ice-cream.

    Anytime is ice-cream time…. I’m off to go get some now.

    Cheers

    Cat :)

    Hmm… not a bad idea Tony. Thank you.

    Am running a $5.95 Hot Dog and Pepsi Deal as well as a $5.90 Toasted Sanga and Cuppa Deal which both are proving successful.

    I considered a special Valentines Day Package – A Double Banana Split Sundae mounted on a bed of Rocky Road chocolate – served woth a rose between my teeth — butt naked.

    I’ve been talked out of doing that deal.

    Great idea, except the naked part :)

    Why don’t you get some heart shaped chocolates and give the out to every customer.

    Better still if you have the time or man power, stand in the street and give them out to everyone that walks past as a marketing stunt.

    You could also extend this idea and pop into every local office block or surrounding businesses. They Ll eat ice-cream!

    The handout chocolates is something that we are doing in the near future.

    I had one chocolate supplier who convinced me to use him… then found out he was using compound chocolate so have given him the flick.

    Going to be making some of our own using Belgium or Swiss chocolate (with Cocoa oil!!!) but won’t get any done in time for Valentine’s Day.

    I have made up the odd batch of pancakes, put them into a take-away container, added a scoop of icecream and a drizzle of genuine maple syrup, and dropped them on nearby businesses.

    OK result for increased pancake orders… BUT it certainly got them in to buy icecream and Hot Dogs. (Not at the same time I must add. lol)
