Pinky’s Shaved Ice is a family owned and operated business out of Lizella.

We opened our business in the spring of 2014. This is our 5th season selling more than two dozen delicious flavors of shaved ice at events, gatherings, and parties all over Middle Georgia.

We currently have three trailers, which we take to community, church, and corporate events and parties. My kids and friends of the family work with me.

What is it like to own your own business? I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the flexibility!! And I love meeting so many wonderful people all over Middle Georgia.

I also love spending so much time with my kids. Tevyn is the young of my four children, and he works the most with me. You have a lot of fun when you are in a 7×12 trailer for hours at a time.

If you have never tried Pinky’s Shaved Ice, there will be many opportunities this summer for you to give us a try. The most popular flavors would be a tie between blue raspberry and tiger blood. My current favorite flavor is mango with a splash of guava.

In Houston County, we will be at the Centerville Food Truck Friday’s on the first Friday of each month through October. We will also be at the Harvest Church in Warner Robins every Friday for their summer family block party, June 8-July 27, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

In Crawford County, we will be at the Crawford County ball field in Roberta for their baseball tournament June 22-24.

During the Independence Day holiday, Pinky’s Shaved Ice trucks will be working all over Middle Georgia. We will appear at the Fourth of July celebrations in Centerville on July 2, in Warner Robins on July 3, and in Macon at Lake Tobosofkee on July 4th. Come out and visit us, and keep cool with our shaved ice.
