Nick's has decided to hire a 7th employee, and maybe even an 8th, but it won't be easy. Even as they do that, plans are being made for being able to stay open year round. How will they accomplish that? After all, Nick's is a seasonal shaved ice business in a trailer. It is next to impossible to sell shaved ice in the winter from a trailer.
Nick's has decided to raise the money, through grants and donations, to purchase a larger trailer so that we can offer more differently awesome items that can be sold all year long.
If you ever visit Nick's you will immediately understand how much this job means to these wonderful young men and women. They are the best and most loyal workers you will ever encounter. They just needed a safe and enriching environment to work in, one that a food trailer can provide. The best thing to see is the confidence that these workers have gained and to see that they relish that they are productive members of society.
Nick's ensures that they are rewarded for that loyalty too as they make well over minimum wage. It is important that the expectations are the same for them as it would be for anybody and that they are treated equally.
Nick's is trying to gain grants for the larger trailer and has raised about half of the needed funds to get the trailer they need. Obtaining grants is a very competitive process that could take years. In the meantime, Nick's is reaching out to the wonderful people who love what Nick's stands for to donate whatever small amount they can to help Nick's reach its goal sooner rather than later. Even small amounts are great because a lot of small amounts add up over time.
