Sunset Slush® – Who We Are

For many years our family has vacationed at Ocean Isle Beach.  We enjoy the calm family atmosphere where our boys can walk the beach safely away from the commercialism of larger beaches. One of our favorite treats during our stays has been the Italian Ice sold out of colorful carts that are pushed up and down the beaches.  Sunset Slush, with the yellow and white umbrella has always been our favorite.  

We visited the Sunset Slush store so often, we became friends with the original owners.  Three years ago, they offered to sell us a franchise.  Being a local builder in Davie County for over 30 years, I know the value of owning a business.  I wanted to teach my sons the entrepreneurial skills and responsibilities of running their own business.  We purchased the franchise and hit the ground running!

What we thought would be a “summer Job” for our sons, has turned into a year around business with us having to hire many local teens. Haynes has worked the business during the summers and breaks throughout his college years and now our youngest son Hunt is working local events. Tanner Junker, Will Cope and many others have been excellent representatives of Sunset Slush.  We strive to hire student who work hard and have excellent “people skills”.

Our business has grown to include four carts and trailers and we schedule multiple events each week.  We have been privileged to be a part of many school, community and business events.  We support Davie High Football, Davie Dazzle Volleyball, Twins Soccer, Little League Football and Baseball as well as other organizations throughout the Piedmont.

We are so thankful and would like to express our gratitude to the Davie County Community for supporting our business and for thinking of Sunset Slush when you are planning your events.  You make our job fun and we look forward to seeing our repeat customers at many venues. We proudly give back a percentage of our proceeds to support schools, athletics and community programs.   We are available for weddings, vacation bible school, private parties and fundraisers as well.  We would love to help make your next event special!

Thank you again!
