What Prices Should I Charge?

Shaved ice prices can vary drastically depending on your location… feel free to use our suggestions as a starting point for your research on what would be best in your area.

Pricing for street-side locations is typically less than event location pricing.

If there are other shaved ice shacks in your area, you should be comparable with their pricing. If you are the only one for miles around then you have more flexibility setting your prices.

A Typical Pricing Scenario for a Street-Side Location:

Kiddie (8 oz flat top)                                            $0.75 – $1.00

Extra-Small (8 oz. with top)                                $1.25 – $1.50

Small (12 oz. with top)                                         $1.75 – $2.00
