Savage Snow Cones – a Seasonal Fun Family Step-in
Savannah, Mo. – A seasonal summer business will celebrate its opening soon in Savannah, Missouri. When owners, Cheryl & Robert Mitchell began thinking about opportunities for summer fun, it seemed to them that shaved snow cones fit the bill! Cheryl says, “We own two other businesses in the local area, and we love to find new ways to grow our local economy. Opening a seasonal business helps us to work around our other businesses. We would love to grow to other towns to fill a need there for summer fun.”
When asked about the challenges of opening a new business, Cheryl could immediately name the struggle. She said, “Undoubtedly, it is finding a balanced approach for time management and family and the needs of the business.” She advises, “When feeling stressed, just take a deep breath and regroup. Know that keeping a healthy balance between family, work and home is of super importance.”
“We have been blessed by the assistance of the Northwest Missouri Enterprise Facilitation with business advice and also helping get the word out on our new venture.” The family says that they moved “blindly” to Savannah in 2014 and with the help of Keli Morris of NWMEF, they opened their first business in 2015. “They stepped in and guided our business in a local capacity, but also with the knowledge base that their members bring to the table,” say the Mitchells. “When I have a stumbling block, I look to NWMEF for guidance,” says Cheryl.
Northwest Missouri Enterprise Facilitation is hosting a business celebration to welcome Savage Snow Cones to the community on Saturday May 19th 2018 at 2:00 p.m. Savage Snow Cones is located at 108 South 5th Street, Savannah, Missouri, 816-324-0101.
