Local Shaved Ice Flavor: Sno-Beach, Austin TX

Everyone loves their local shaved ice stand, offering delicious fruity flavors combined with refreshing ice to cool you down on a hot summer day. Best of all, the majority of shaved ice businesses are locally owned -operated by your friends and neighbors.  It’s a great way to enjoy a refreshing treat while supporting your community’s economy.

In an effort to support local business, we’re going to highlight a locally owned shaved ice stand in Austin, Texas. SnoBeach was born by Connie and Don over twenty years ago in Austin, born from a couple’s love of shaved ice, and a desire to live closer to their grandchildren. Anyone who’s ever visited Austin in the summer, or any time of year for that matter, knows that Austin can have high temperatures – and that Austin is a mecca of creative food trucks, like SnoBeach.

As one of the first food trucks in Austin, SnoBeach’s foresight, hard work and tasty shaved ice creations have helped many thousands of Austinites and visitors beat the heat! Over the years SnoBeach has changed locations, expanded the menu, and passed the business down to one of their devout customers, but has kept the same friendly service and quality shaved ice. Best of all, SnoBeach has never forgotten that helping others in need is always more important than the bottom line. Over the years the generosity of SnoBeach’s “Change the World” project has made positive a positive impact, helping the needy from the hills of Central Texas to the plateaus of Ethiopia.  

If you are ever in the “Live Music Capitol of the World” make sure you stop by SnoBeach in one of their two locations! One at the University of Texas, another on Barton Strings Road. Let them know who sent you!
