We open on April 1st in 2022 and we are not fooling you.
Nick's Shaved Ice Paradise is a 501c3 Nonprofit Organization dedicated to providing safe and meaningful jobs for individuals who have developmental disabilities and
who could not find, or hold a job.
Customers who take time to get to know our employees will be inspired by how good they are at their jobs and how much they love serving them.
Nick's is open from mid-March to mid-November.
We still have year-round expenses. For instance, it costs us over $3,000 per year to store our trailer and truck and our insurance costs are over $2,000. These kinds of expenses keep us operating at a deficit and that is why we are a nonprofit. We need help to keep operating.
We actually break even on all of our other expenses but stay about $5,000 in the hole at the end of the year. The good news is that our donation box generated half of that deficit this year, leaving us at a $2,500 deficit when all is done for the year.
Help us overcome our deficit so that we can continue to provide safe and meaningful jobs for individuals who have developmental disabilities.
The flavors pictured are available every day. Check the window for new flavors
