New Ice Cream Man Offers Cool Treats

Posted: Updated:

The countdown to the first day of school has gone from weeks, to being just days away.

While many high school students enjoy their summer by playing on the beach, one young man has been working three jobs.

The one he started in late July is just now picking up steam.

"I'm not tanning and relaxing but it's not like I'm breaking my back either."

The hotter it is, the better for one man's cool new business.

"That seems to be the most profitable time is when there's sun, even if it's windy and there's sun."

Jonah Eslinger will be a senior at Century High School.

He already works two jobs at Gateway to Science and a comic book store, but this Riverside Ice Cream cart was his idea.

"There's these people here and the closest they can get to ice cream is the grocery store down the way." says Jonah Eslinger, Riverside Ice Cream Owner.

With a little help from dad, he's staying stocked up and keeping everything cool.

For advertising, he's gotten a little help from his girlfriend, her art helps draw in business.

"Actually if I did say anything it was make sure people see it."

Whether new customers see him or hear him, all of the area is getting a taste of his merchandise, and the option of a cool treat in the heat.

"Well, there's a beach and it's sometimes hot, I mean there should be ice cream everywhere." says Eslinger.

Jonah says by next summer he hopes to grow his business and offer more carts at different locations.

He had to get permits from the city and parks department.

He also works events and says he sold up to 700 dollars worth of ice cream at the McQuade's softball tournament.
