A new business will celebrate its opening soon in Rock Port, Missouri. When owners, Chris and Amy Shimmel began thinking about business opportunities, they also were thinking about taking the opportunity to control their own future while somehow becoming a blessing to the community. They decided that shaved snow cones fit the bill. The couple says, “It’s a unique summer time treat. It’s made with the highest quality ingredients and ice shaved extremely soft and fluffy. Our flavors taste just like the real thing.”
The couple connected with Monica Bailey at ACDC, who also directed them to Keli Morris of Northwest Missouri Enterprise Facilitation (NWMEF). With the help of these mentors, they gained knowledge that they are happy to share with other entrepreneurs.
NWMEF is hosting a business celebration to welcome Tropical Sno Midwest to the community on Tuesday, June 12, 2018, at 12:45 p.m. Tropical Sno Midwest is located at 402 S. Main Street.
If you are interested in starting your own business or tweaking your existing business, NWMEF would be happy to assist you. For more information, contact Keli Morris, facilitator, at 816-262-9400 or facilitator@nwmef.org.
