Learn How to Start Your Own Shaved Ice Business

Are You Ready To Learn How To Start Your Own Shaved Ice Business?

Harper’s Hut has learned a lot over the years that we’ve been in business, growing, and expanding to multiple location in our hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma.  We’ve quit our regular, 9 to 5 day jobs and gone full time into the Shaved Ice Business, and enjoyed every minute of it.  Now we want to help you learn how to start your own shaved ice business too.

The Harper’s Hut team is currently developing a full, comprehensive program to help learn how you start your own shaved ice business. We’ll show you how to develop your business idea all the way through to starting and running your own shaved ice business.  We’re Calling It Harper’s  Hut University, or HHU for short, and we’d love to have you join us for our very first class.

How  Harper’s Hut Began

The Harper’s Hut family started out with me (William) and my wife (Lindsey) and a goal to set up a stable, additional revenue stream for our family.  I had been working full time in higher education for many years, and had come to the realization that my heart was really full of passion for entrepreneurship.   The idea for Harper’s Hut started right here in our home town of Sand Springs, OK and grew from there.   I quit my full time job and launched Harper’s Hut full time, and year round.

Through out the years we’ve operated multiple shaved ice stands in Oklahoma, we’ve learned how to keep consistent revenue coming in year round. 


You might think that shaved ice is only a seasonal business, but that is simply not the case.    We’ve kept our amazing desserts going year round through partnering with many businesses and individuals who have events at all different times of the year.  Today, we’re proud to have multiple, successful locations for shaved ice through out northeast Oklahoma.  We want to show you how to do the same thing for your community and for your family.   Are you ready to start your own, independent shaved ice business?  We’re ready to help you.
