    商户名称:Abracadabra Ice Cream Factory

    总部:佛罗里达州克莱蒙特市

    “念咒语啦!阿拉卡赞!快快做好比利的冰淇淋!”

    一阵“魔云”般的烟雾从一个钢罐里升腾起来,孩子则在一边满心期待地守候着。在Abracadabra冰淇淋工厂(Abracadabra Ice Cream Factory),这就是低温巫师的表演。

    这个公司的所有人约翰•葛莱穆里37岁,他是通过互联网搜索相关信息之后投身液态氮冰淇淋生意的。他在餐饮行业工作了23年之久,从杂工一路做到经理。通过调研这十年来最炙手可热的生意趋势,他为开创自己的小生意做足了准备。

    他最后锁定的目标是?液态氮冰淇淋和纸杯蛋糕。

    利用自己38,000美元的个人积蓄和父亲及朋友的资助,Abracadabra今年3月开张了。这家店出品无糖、无脂肪和无乳糖的另类产品,并在产品名录中加入了纸杯蛋糕和葛莱穆里的妻子贝姬特制的蛋糕。

    Abracadabra目前已经盈利,目标是开业第一年销售总额达到24万美元。位于基西米市的第二家分店将于2012年2月开出。

Abracadabra Ice Cream Factory

    Company : Abracadabra Ice Cream Factory

    Headquarters: Clermont, Fla.

    "Abracadabra! Alakazam! Make Billy's ice cream as fast as you can!"

    A "magic cloud" of vapor rises from a steel bowl as a small child waits in anticipation. At Abracadabra Ice Cream Factory, it's a cryogenic wizard's show.

    Owner John Gramley, 37, went into the liquid nitrogen ice cream business after an internet search. The 23-year restaurant industry veteran -- who worked his way from busboy to manager -- prepared for his own small business venture by researching the decade's hottest trends.

    His result? Liquid nitrogen ice cream and cupcakes.

    Utilizing $38,000 in personal savings and contributions from his father and a friend, Abracadabra opened in March. The company offers sugar-free, fat-free and lactose-free alternatives, and adds variety to its menu with gourmet cupcakes and specialty cakes made by Gramley's wife, Becky.

    Abracadabra is already turning a profit and on target to reach $240,000 in gross sales in its first year. A second Kissimmee location will open by February 2012.
