Happy in a Cup

What started out as a dream or idea became reality when our extended family came back to Washington state from living on Hawaii and Oahu,  with them they brought  Myke’s SHAVE ICE to Whatcom County (Bellingham Farmer’s Market).  We were living in Arizona at the time and Brian decided to pursue the building of his first cart about 9 years ago.  The intent was to sell SHAVE ICE at special events in Scottsdale.  Unfortunately, due to job re-location, this dream did not become reality in Arizona.  It wasn’t until 2007, in Washington state did this dream materialize. It started off slow, initially doing church and community picnics as both Brian and Jacqueline had other jobs and spent most of their time shuffling their children to their activities. 


In 2008, Hawaiian ParadICE began surfacing at gymnastics competitions and a couple soccer tournaments and was a huge hit.  From here the business began to grow and we committed to regular weekly farmers markets and other special events & festivals. In 2010, Brian built another smaller portable cart so Jacqueline could do events during the week, predominately, Snohomish Farmers Market on Thursdays May-August. With the children learning the business and with 5 machines and 3 full set-ups, Hawaiian ParadICE has now able to provide more SHAVE ICE to more customers at more events.  


The rest is history in the making.
