My husband and I own a little mobile ice cream truck.
- It’s super fun to own and operate, and since we’ve retired we’ve been traveling around the country selling our ice cream.
I appreciate doing it, and it’s a good way to see the sights around the country. The two of us try to visit places where the weather and temperature are kind of moderateâ€¦ You can’t genuinely sell a lot of ice cream in places where the temperature is freezing all the time. Then again, when the two of us visit places where the un-even temperatures get genuinely hot, the two of us have complications with keeping our products cold enough. There’s nothing worse than trying to sell melted ice cream. The two of us keep the freezers as cold as the two of us can, but then we’ve found that the two of us also have to turn the air conditioning in the cab and in the serving area of the truck turned way down as well. The air conditioning in the cab of the ice cream truck is surprisingly effective; Unfortunately for us, though, running the air conditioning all the time in the truck genuinely does a number on our gasoline bills. I guess the two of us pay more for gas when the temperature outside is hot than the two of us do when we’re in a more temperate temperature. I have to say, whenever the two of us started talking about running an ice cream business, I never genuinely factored the high cost of air conditioning into our supplier plan! I think I just consistently thought that the freezer would be enough when it comes to keeping the ice cream cold. But boy, was I wrong!
