Snow & Co. Serves Up a Tasty Tundra in the Midwest
Snow & Co.
Jerry Nevins, Andy Talbert + Lauren Cloud | Kansas City, MO | Main Street
Since 2011, Snow & Co. has endeared itself to the Crossroads and especially to entrepreneurs. (So much so that it was named Paste magazine’s No. 1 frozen cocktail bar in America and won $40K in equipment and services for its new Gladstone location from the national Dreamstaurant Contest.)
Below, co-founder Jerry Nevins, head of strategy and customer happiness, shares what makes Snow & Co. so very chill and cool.
What you do: Drink. Oh, and we make boozy slushy delights from premium spirits, fresh squeezed juices and handmade syrups. We're also a spot where entrepreneurs meet (drink).
Your big news in 2015: We've had a kid! Well, kind of, it's really a second location in Gladstone's Linden Square two blocks east of 70th and North Oak Trafficway. It's got a sweet new patio, private room and it's all shiny and new.
The noun that describes who you are: Quirky
The verb that describes what (or why?) you do: Run!!!
Your entrance music: Ice Ice Baby, if only because of the relation to our product.
Your power motto: Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you might miss it.
Your KC happy place: Most anyplace in the Crossroads
Your app obsession: OmniFocus (for the GTD nerds out there)
Your offline addiction: The cookies at Murray's Ice Cream.
Kansas City’s best move: Sporting KC's sweet new digs.
Kansas City’s best kept secret: The theater community. Top notch stuff.
Your triumph: Opening a frozen drink bar in the winter (twice) and living to tell about it.
Your wisdom earned the hard way: Don't buy a 500 lb. cooler unless you know EXACTLY what you'll do with it.
Your comfort: Catdaddy Moonshine. Seriously, go get some.
On your entrepreneurial watch list: All the new breweries in East Crossroads.
On your entrepreneurial wish list: Serving frozen cocktails to the president
Your KC entrepreneurial crush: The team over at Think Big.
Your mentor: My other business partners. Surround yourself with people you admire.
Where you find your tribe: 1 Million Cups, or our bar. Lol.
Your next move: The Dougie. Always wanted to learn that.
Your exit music: The entire album Disintegration by The Cure. (We walk slow.)
Your last word: We create . . .babies, new business ventures and tipsy people. Not necessarily in that order.
