Boost your Profits...Make your Own Syrups!

If you are a shaved ice or snow cone concessionaire and you have the ability to make, store and use larger quantities of flavor syrups, you should seriously consider making your own syrups using the concentrates sold at

Here's why:

Cost Analysis for a Gallon of Flavored Syrup:

Sugar: $2.89/5 lb. bag

Concentrate: $1.25 - based on ordering a $39.95 gallon (makes 32 gallons of syrup)

Preservative: $0.16 - based on purchasing one gallon of Sodium Benzoate

Total: $4.30/gallon ($1.08/quart) ($0.034/per ounce)

So, for those operations who are in a position to make their own syrups and store them, this represents a significant savings over purchasing ready to use flavors. Savings equals more profits. If you are interested in learning more about making your own syrups, please feel free to email at

Do You Operate your Concession Stand at Private Parties?

If you answered yes to that question, you should consider listing your business at It is free to list your company on their site. Best of all, it gives you additional exposure on the Internet for your business. More and more people use the Internet to search out services and finding vendors for parties is just another one of those things people use the Internet to find.

While searching for shaved ice vendors, a couple of different companies listings came up from PartyPlannerUSA, so I'd say it's a good idea to place a listing in their system.
