Welcome to Big Easy Franchising

Convert sugar and ice into big time revenues when you become a Big Easy Sno-Balls franchise owner. Our company has been running successful sno-ball shops in Marietta, Woodstock, and Atlanta, Georgia for more than 13 years. 

We have what it takes to guarantee you the highest possibility of success. Throughout our more than 13 years of experience, we have sold over 500,000 sno-balls as well as designed and built 3 stores and 2 food trucks. Apart from this, we have also trained over 200 employees and managers who continue to excel at what they do.

The Winning Formula

At Big Easy Sno-Balls, we believe that the winning formula is comprised of three fundamental and vital ingredients. These are:

  • Great Products
  • Helpful and Caring People
  • Clean, Safe, and Welcoming Environment for Everyone

Instagram-Worthy Products That Taste Amazing

Our products from Big Easy Sno-Balls are meticulously crafted using the best and freshest ingredients available and in Louisiana’s tradition of decadence. We have also perfected the process of consistently shaving ice used to create the finest, fluffiest, and smoothest sno-ball you will ever have. Additionally, all our syrups are made fresh daily from pure non-GMO cane sugar and our sweet cream topping is produced from scratch.

It's Always Been About the People

“If you are going to be in the customer service business, you better like people.”

Big Easy Sno-Balls believes in this as we are, in fact, in the people-pleasing industry. It is our duty to help brighten someone's day and provide comfort when they're hurt. But most definitely, we are here to have fun and make exciting things to eat! To do this, we play lively music, encourage dancing, and let people have a great time, especially kids whom we absolutely adore.

A Winning Destination

Benefits for Franchisees

Big Easy Sno-balls has the experience you will need to ensure the highest possibility of success.  We have sold over  500,000 Sno-balls, have designed & built 3 stores and 2 food trucks, and also have trained over 200 employees and managers.

Because you will be manufacturing the inventory of the two largest ingredients of the Sno-Balls, ice and syrup, you have the ability to not only have control over your cost inputs for these items, you also have the ability to keep your Cost of Goods Sold for Sno-Balls down to less than 4% of sales for Sno-Balls.  Additionally, when you consider the energy it takes to make the ice blocks, the paper goods costs and even the syrups; you still keep the Cost of Goods Sold for Sno-Balls down to less than 10% of sales for Sno-Balls.*

Since there is some seasonality to the Sno-ball business, you will work the hardest during the Spring, Summer and Fall leaving more free time for family and other passions during the Winter holidays.
