About Chilly Ribbons, Inc.
Although Chilly Ribbons is the first to introduce shaved snow to North America, its actual history can be traced back over 2,000 years to the Roman Emperor, Nero, who, according to legend had servants collect snow from nearby mountains and flavor it with fruit and honey. In more modern times, shaved snow has long been a favorite throughout Asia.
Chilly Ribbons is headquartered in Orlando, Florida and has three production facilities in the United States and one in Canada.
Chilly Ribbons is not yogurt, ice cream or shaved ice. It’s a new food category called shaved snow! The company was founded by Scott Colwell in 2013 after he had experienced the frozen treat first hand in Taiwan, where crowds were gathered watching an incredible show of a solid frozen block of fruit and other delicious ingredients being shaved into long, thin flowing ribbons, and then topped with exotic fruits and other treats. The best dessert he had ever tasted, Colwell became consumed with how to introduce the rest of the world to this amazing treat. He worked for several years adapting the shaved snow for the North American palette and developing the delivery technology and the world’s first self-refrigerated multi-flavored ice shaving machine.
The company offers three franchise opportunities: mall kiosks, mobile kiosks, and retail stores.
