The Lil Ice Cream Dude, who is one of Athens' youngest entrepreneurs, has recently opened the first location for his ice cream shop in Athens, Georgia.
According to a Facebook post, the soft opening came after six years of operating his business out of his parent’s garage. At just 13 years of age, Beau Shell, the Lil Ice Cream Dude, has accomplished opening up his own brick and mortar ice cream shop.
At the shop, which is located on 1040 Gaines School Road #218, Shell gave presentations about his business plan as well as samples throughout the day of his soft opening last week, as The Red & Black reported.
Lil Ice Cream Dude also created an ongoing Kickstarter campaign seeking $20,000 according to the website. It was started on Black Friday to raise money for COOL World, Shell's ice cream shop.
"The installation of the floors and ceilings alone will consume most of the $20,000 but there will be enough left over to purchase the basic equipment Beau will need to get up and running," the campaign statement reads.
"At this level supporters will help to create one of 5 custom ice cream sandwiches to be featured on the "Specials" menu and which will bear their names or the names of any their consenting family members.
These sandwiches will be sold in all Cool World Ice Cream Shops. Backers at this level will also receive five autographed copies of Beau's first children's book, "Coolest Birthday Ever" and one Cool World t-shirt," according to the Kickstarter page.
