At one point in my life my Dad considered converting our 3 acre farm into a go-kart/mini golf/ski ball fun land complete with an ice cream stand. True story.
Being 10 at the time I volunteered to handle the ice cream stand and came up with “The Daily Scoop” as my new business name. The Fun Land never came to be but I still think the ice cream shop idea could be kind of cute! If I made it today here’s what it might look like…
To begin, I think all the tables and booths would look great decorated with old newspapers and modge podge. (I’d probably stay away from appetite suppressing headlines about the swine flu though!)
I think the menus should either look like mini newspapers themselves (only desserts)…
or they could be more standard with a retro fonts and exclamation marks. Maybe I could type them out myself with the old type writer?
Lastly, for the ice cream I think flavors like Strawberry Scandal, Hazelnut Headline, and Praline Press would be deliciously appropriate. For the grand finale customers could order a Sundae Paper! Um, I don’t exactly know what that would be it sounds cool. =)
Do you have any fun business ideas? What dream shop would you’d love to open one day?
I tried to include the links for all of these pictures but a few of them I couldn’t find anywhere. If you know who created them let me know and I’ll be sure to give proper credit!
