Can you Really Make a Living Selling Ice Cream From a Truck?
As we approach summer and you hear the music from an ice cream truck driving down the street, do you wonder, is it really worth it to sell ice cream that way?
The answer is yes and no. What it really boils down to is what you consider a living wage. According to Quara, an ice cream truck can make a little or a lot depending on where they are able to drive. One ice cream vendor says it is the contact with the public, not the money, that makes it worthwhile.
On the bottom end, an ice cream truck can make roughly $50 per day during the peak season. If you have permits to be at specific locations, that can increase the amount a lot more.
Unfortunately, ice-cream isn't big in the winter, so if you're considering a career in selling ice cream in Colorado, you might want to have some other type of income in the winter off-season.
