starting an ice cream parlor

I am contemplating starting an ice cream parlor.

Since it seems to be seasonal, what are your ideas for off months?

Great idea, I didn't even think of a brothel.

That gas smell is to hard to get off your hands.

There was an ice cream parlor near here that sold soup and chili during the ice cream offseason. They were doing pretty well until the couple that owned it got a divorce and closed it in a dispute.

I worked at DQ Grill and Chill for a year and a half. Just recently got a new job. But I was a part of management.

But anyway, if you want to open up anything ice cream, do a DQ Grill and Chill.
The profits are amazing. It is still seasonal, but you have food in the winter, and the summer makes up for it.

This year in June we make $180,000
$160,000 or so in August

Winter we make about $60-80,000.

But, a large billzard is $4.09 at my DQ. The cost for us to make that is 75 cents. 4 Piece chicken with a drink is about $7.00, costs us $1.75.
