Snowie King has made it a point to give 20% of all of our sales back to the community in which we do business. As a result, we were looking to join the Chamber in our community that most precisely matched our core business mission and values.
“The mission of the Lincoln Area Chamber of Commerce is to advocate for business and be a resource for the community.
The Lincoln Chamber is part of the US Chamber of Commerce, an organization dedicated to supporting US businesses in the areas of Advocacy, Community, Leadership, and Publications. The national organization supports more than 3 billion businesses in all sizes, states and sectors, from mom-and-pop shops to large corporations.”-LCC website
Snowie King has made it a point to give 20% of all of our sales back to the community in which we do business. As a result, we were looking to join the Chambers in our community that most precisely matched our core business mission and values. Roseville Area Chamber is one of only six Chambers in the California to achieve the top “5 STARS” rating. We look forward to a long a mutually beneficial relationship with the Chamber and hope to be a strong addition to their already outstanding record of community involvement, activism and giving back.
Below is a bit more about the process of what it takes to receive the highest possible rating for the Chamber.
5 Star Accredited Chamber
“The Roseville Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that after a comprehensive self-evaluation, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has awarded us with 5-star Accreditation. This prestigious award puts us among the top 1% of the chambers nationwide.
This past year, the staff, board, and volunteers of the Roseville Area Chamber spent countless hours completing the Accreditation process. Our task was to demonstrate competency in 9 core areas ranging from finance to facilities. The result of our hard work is evidenced by this impressive rating.
The accreditation process is the only national program of its kind recognizing chambers for their effective organizational procedures and community involvement. Accreditation allowed us to renew, improve, and promote sound business practices, policies and procedures.
Local chambers are rated Accredited, 3-stars, 4-stars, or 5 stars. State chambers are recognized as either Accredited State Chamber with Distinction. The final determination is made by the Accrediting Board, a committee of U.S. Chamber board members and chamber executives from across the country.”
Snowie King’s 2016 Givebacks totaled $5670.00 in only six months of doing business (opened late July 2016). We started Snowie King to offer fun, high quality, reasonably-priced treats that would allow us to work closely with our community. Giving back 20% to every organization that partners with us has been our plan from the beginning and will continue to be the plan going forward. We have been fortunate to work with roughly 30 different schools, youth sports organizations, churches and non-profits so far. Please let us know if you have any events or fundraisers that we would be welcome to attend.

Pretty easy, right?
We have had an excellent first month with the Snowie King Bus! Thank you to everyone who has supported us, encouraged us, invited us, and most importantly, purchased our shaved ice!! It makes us very happy to see the smiles on your face. We wanted to give everyone a FUNdraising update and let you all know about our Grand Opening Party Special we’re running right now.
We started out this business with one very BIG goal. We knew that giving back to our local community is very important to us, so we set the bar high and we’re hoping to be able to give back $20,000 to local organization in our first year. We aren’t exactly on track after month one (but hey, we weren’t able to schedule anything in advance either) however, we’re still pretty excited to report that as of today we have given back over $600! Roseville Youth Soccer Club, Bayside Youth Ministries, Holy Cross Preschool, and Rocklin Jr Thunder have all been able to take back a piece of the action and invest it into the programs and services they provide. Please keep us in mind for your next fundraiser!!
We made a big decision on our trip out to Salt Lake City to pick up our bus. It was a decision that was weighing heavily on me in the months before we ventured out to get our bus. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love a sweet treat as much as anyone, but there was the idea that I might not be making the best decision, the bright sticky snow cone syrup I think of is packed with artificial colors and flavors. Look it up, they’re usually vague about what exactly you’re getting but most of them say “Artificial Flavors” see for yourself. Especially when it comes to my own kids, who no doubt, will have more than their fair share of Snowie King Shaved Ice in the coming years, it just wasn’t sitting well with the Snowie Mom.
So, in the end, I guess the decision was pretty easy. We decided to exclusively sell Snowie Natural Syrups.
Go Round and Round…Round and Round…Round and Round…
Get where this is going? You’re welcome for that preschool jingle that you’ll likely be singing the rest of the day, welcome to our world!
The newest bus on the block is the Snowie King Bus!! Be on the lookout in Rocklin & Roseville as these wheels plan to head… all through the town! (again, you’re welcome). We are now open for booking your next event, so friends and family…
WE NEED YOUR HELP!!
The anticipation of the Snowie King Bus is building! Construction is well underway and we couldn’t be more excited to get operations up and running and bring refreshing shaved ice to activities around the Rocklin and Roseville area! As we continue to look for areas that we can focus on in the start up phase we decided that our knowledge of health and food safety standards was probably a little lacking. With minimal experience working with food or commercial kitchens we felt it would be best to invest some time and energy in this area.
