Throw one of these ice cream coolers in the back of the tow vehicle and you’ll be slingin’ ice cream right alongside your hot dog cart!

Or just use it by itself to sell ice cream at car shows, craft shows, festivals, etc.

I’m not selling these, I’m just passing this along. If you want one contact Demetri at djmpatitsas@gmail.com. He is located in Huntington, Pennsylvania.

What’s your favorite premium ice cream treat? Let me know in the comments! Speaking of Premium treats…

Come on Frank – pretend you have to pick one in the next 10 seconds or as Judge Smails said, “YOU’LL GET NOTHING AND LIKE IT!”

I have seen ice cream carts and bikes.
I wish someone would make one you can pull with a scooter.
a small scooter like a 50cc or something. for those that cant ride a bike

Steve, I would appreciate if i could get more information on ice cream please!!

Not a lot to it. It’s pre-packaged so the HD is usually cool with it (get it? “cool” with it…)
All you need is a way to keep it cold.

dogs on the run "jerry"

would be great to have at a parade to walk the route and sell as you go. one would need another person though. plus, a large supply of ice cream to be able to get to fast since most parades last only about three hours. I have often had people tell me I should hire someone to walk the route selling dogs the baseball park way. as a kid we ate dogs cold from the icebox an then went out to play. lets see cold dogs chocolate dipped on a stick anyone try that yet. sell em’ all

I ate cold hot dogs as a kid too. Didn’t hurt me any. Not sure about chocolate dipped, but I’d probably try one…

how long do these stay cold for? i would be interested in them outside the NBA arena I do.

You need a certain temp for the type of ice cream you want to carry.
noveltys need a cold plate freezer and scouped need another.
and ices even need their own too.

Demetri Patitsas

The units will stay cool depending on weather conditions, how full you have the box, and how well you cool the cold plates the night before. I would give it a healthy 4-5 hours and then after that, reconsider as if the ice cream man or woman is inexperienced, they may leave the unit open or something to this effect.

Hot Dogs, ice cream and Florida sound like a winner to me. Just a bit too far to PA to consider. BTW Demetri, what did you want per unit? I don’t think it’s going to be that hard to sell them …. summer coming up and all. Think I’ll look for something down here in central Florida. Thanks for the idea.

They are listed for $1200, but I am looking to get $950 for them plus shipping.
