August 24, 2015 // Franchising.com // BOCA RATON, Fla. – Tikiz Shaved Ice & Ice Cream, a mobile franchise specializing in unique frozen treats, will soon open all-new businesses in Mississippi and Louisiana. The franchises were sold to entrepreneur Craig Sanders, who will serve as owner of at least three fully customized Tikiz trucks to provide residents, schools, businesses and organizations delicious and refreshing enjoyment all year long.
“Tikiz is on the move once again, and we’re looking forward to watching Craig experience that growth with his new Mississippi and Louisiana franchises,” said Brian Tollefson, founder of Tikiz Shaved Ice & Ice Cream. “These states are prime territories for Tikiz as we continue our nationwide growth and we’re confident the community will quickly embrace the concept and all that it has to offer.”
Like all Tikiz franchises, the soon-to-launch Mississippi and Louisiana locations will feature the Tikiz truck, built from the ground up with numerous custom components to provide a truly one-of-a-kind experience. Based off brand new, heavy-duty, yet fuel efficient Ford truck platforms, all Tikiz trucks share the same, highly visible Hawaiian beach-themed wrap with real, custom surfboard signage, multiple water misters at each end, 20” chrome wheels and custom lighting with strobes, neon colors and steel drum music. The patented “Surv-Board™” dispenser allows customers to create their own fruit syrup creations, while a high-output ice shaver works from high output batteries to provide owners efficient, yet powerful operation.
“A Tikiz truck is more than just a shaved ice and ice cream truck as it provides true community support,” said Tollefson. “In addition to bringing fresh, healthier and delicious treats to kids of all ages, our FUNdraiser program will be offered to schools and local organizations who are looking for reputable financial support. It’s an easy and fun way for us to give back to those we serve.”
The new Tikiz Mississippi and Louisiana franchises are currently in the development process and will be available soon. To find out more about Tikiz and franchise opportunities available nationwide, visit http://www.tikiz2u.com/franchising/.
