On The Profit episode “Snowdays,” investor Marcus Lemonis travels to New York City to check out Snowdays, a dessert shop in the East Village, that serves shaved cream, an Asian inspired frozen dessert. It’s a hybrid of ice cream and shaved ice and it’s served with a variety of creative toppings including cookies, nuts, and Asian candy. Yetitracks is the store’s signature flavor (blueberries and oreo cookies!). On The Profit, Lemonis meets the young owner of Snowdays, Tony Quach. His staff complain to Lemonis about Tony’s lack of managerial skills.
Quach, who’s from New Canaan, Connecticut, opened the first Snowdays in 2014 (in the East Village). Over the years, Snowdays opened a number of shops in New York including one in the West Village, Park Slope (Brooklyn), and Queens (Flushing, Bayside, and Forest Hills). However, according to Yelp, all of the Snowdays mentioned above have closed, with the exception of the original shop on E. 10th Street, which just got a makeover and celebrated with a grand opening on February 2 (see photo below). Snowdays is currently offering franchise opportunities. The Profit airs Tuesdays at 10 pm on CNBC.
