    I don't think it's good to sale ice cream in winter season because it's off season. Who would eat ice cream in winter. But there would be probability for girls or new couples and it would be quite low.

    Not a great idea until there is a very unique thing in your store...

    I've lived in both Chicago and Boston and there seems to be plenty of ice cream buyers year round. Ice cream stores in summer tourist areas don't do well in the winter but that is mostly because the tourists are gone.

    Hi friend,Don't be afraid of anything if you have to sell ice cream in winters that will be the damn good idea because mostly every people think that they will not get ice cream in winters and if you have that,that will a bonus for the tourists and even the local people at your place.For attracting people you may just do a thing that try to make new ways of ice cream like ice creams are formed by two peoples catching the ice creams, or just add the speciality of your place in those ice creams...Be different,get different..

    I don't think so, you can make good sale in winter but i love to eat ice cream in winter. Mostly people doesn't like to eat ice cream in winter they are prefer to drink some hot things.
    Keep it try. Maybe it will be profitable for you.

    There might be a few 'targeted' market who will be interested in it during the season.

    However, these few people might not give you the ideal return to keep the business running during that period.

    I agree with Marcus and henna. Why not go for hot drinks or soups?

    Coffee, Tea, Hot soup, Noodles would be good.

    But these will be very common devil,something new should be there in every season.Offering hot items in cold would be common,but offering cold items in winters would be different and get some unique stuff in your shop whih covers the speciality of your place..

    Hey,
    First of all no offenses. I think selling ice-cream in winters is a damn cool idea. Most of the youngsters love to eat ice creams in winters. Sometimes change is good to your business. Anyone could sell ice cream in summers, but being different is always good. So don't be afraid of anything. I am damn sure that you will make profit.

    I think it will be a new thing to have ice cream in winters too..You can go for some special type of ice cream which may become tourists attraction in your place...
