"THE NATIONS" BAR AND GRILL - ICE CREAM TRUCK NOT WELCOME!

Posted by mrbryanicecream@hotmail.com on August 10, 2017 at 8:00 PM Comments comments (0)

Having frequented this brand new eatery on 51st Ave North for several weeks and spending hundreds of dollars on their overpriced, mediocre food and occasional beer, including consistantly generous tips. (It was convenient .....That's all!)

I was a bit taken aback when I was suddenly asked to pay my bill, get out, and never come back....... no explanation given. As a senior citizen who has never in my life been kicked out of anywhere and aware of comm...

PARENTS PLEASE MAKE THE CALL YOURSELF!

Posted by mrbryanicecream@hotmail.com on August 10, 2017 at 8:00 PM Comments comments (0)

I really hate for customers to miss me and I am always willing to turn around when they can't catch me, even if I'm on another street, as long as I'm not miles away by the time they call. I am never in a hurry.

Unfortunately, many people let their toddlers call me instead of doing it themselves and I sometimes cannot understand a single word or pick out the address. (It also doesn't help that I often get pointless calls from children w...

PHONE ME ! TEXTING ME DOES NOT WORK !

Posted by mrbryanicecream@hotmail.com on October 26, 2016 at 1:40 AM Comments comments (0)

Most people assume that a text message works as well as a phone call. It does not ! They hear me in their neighborhood and text me to turn around, if they have missed me. Unfortunately, text alerts are hard to hear in a movng vehicle, and I may not notice your text until hours later .......way too late to do any good. And If I happen to be usIng my credit card reader, the phone doesn't work either. The only reliable way to reach me is a PHONE CALL !  If I don't answer, CAL...

NO MORE WASTED COFFEE

Posted by mrbryanicecream@hotmail.com on September 22, 2016 at 3:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Many people and especially restaurants throw out almost as much coffee as they consume. This can get surprisingly expensive over time, especially if you tend to buy premium varieties. I found out many years ago that coffee does not get stale, as most people believe. It turns bitter because it's being kept hot. If you make coffee and IMMEDIATELY remove it from the heat and let it cool, it can be reheated for at least 2 days. As long as you don't reheat it to the boiling point, i...

"FRUIT ICE" ? I THINK NOT !

Posted by mrbryanicecream@hotmail.com on September 21, 2016 at 2:25 PM Comments comments (0)

Some vendors selling shaved ice have recently been quoted by customers as having described their products as "fruit ice". This is clearly misleading, since their products contain no fruit or fruit juice whatsoever and would be more accurately described as "chemical ice". While I have nothing against vendors selling snow cones or any other product, I do have a problem with false or misleading marketing.

Everything I sell has to have the ingredients c...

MR BRYAN - WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?

Posted by mrbryanicecream@hotmail.com on September 20, 2016 at 3:15 PM Comments comments (0)

If you haven't seen me in your neighborhood too much recently there are a couple of reasons for this. First of all I now have just about the only legal and fully insured truck in many counties, so getting around to see everybody is a bit of a challenge.

Secondly, with all of the legal fleets going out of business (racing to the bottom) I have picked up many of the top commercial customers they lost in their never ending effort to be the cheapest, ra...

NEW FRUIT BARS !

Posted by mrbryanicecream@hotmail.com on September 7, 2016 at 1:50 PM Comments comments (0)

I'm always looking for new high quality items to add to my menu. Availability of even my most popular items varies constantly, but be assured, I will never substitute any item with one of lower quality. You deserve better!

I recently discovered some really fabulous fruit bars made by a Mexican company and have added several as they have become available.

They include a creamy mango, strawberr...

MORE LIGHTS - MORE FUN - MORE SAFETY

Posted by mrbryanicecream@hotmail.com on July 12, 2016 at 2:25 PM Comments comments (0)

I've added some new lights an a new menu board to the truck. It now has colorful flashing lights around the hightop and a full size tow truck style flashing light bar on the roof. These not only make the truck more fun and easier to find, but also safer for both myself and my customers. Safety is always a top priority. The new menu board has a cleaner look than product pictures on the curved chassy. I also have a second music box that plays fun noises for parties .... everythin...

1-800 numbers

Posted by mrbryanicecream@hotmail.com on July 11, 2016 at 7:20 PM Comments comments (0)

Here's what can happen when you use an 800 number to book an ice cream vendor for your event:


1. You'll likely be talking to someone who is not in your state and is not familiar with your area or your needs. 


2. The 800 company may not own any trucks in your area or have local staff. Your event may be "sold" to a third party who is not responsible to either you or the company...

PHONE ME INSTEAD OF LEAVING MESSAGES

Posted by mrbryanicecream@hotmail.com on Comments comments (0)

Leaving me website messages is not a great way to contact me! I sometimes don't get them for weeks and by then it's way too late to book your party, event, etc. The phone is still the way to go. I'll never understand why people don't just pick up the phone and call me when they have a question or want to book a party, etc. I spend very little time on my website but my cell phone is with me 24/7.

People also frequently send me emails with no phone nu...
