Dessert trailer opens doors on Broadway

SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (KNEP) - A delicious gourmet snow cone trailer opens its doors on Broadway.
Sweet V’s sells cotton candy and shave ice flavors including but not limited to Campfire, Blueberry Cheesecake and their most popular flavors Mangolicious and Arroz Con Leche.
There are 15 flavors each containing a special topping and 12 flavors with gummies for the kids.
The name comes from Co-Owners Mark Villagrana and Allison Harder’s daughter Violet.
Since opening this new trailer, they sell at least 250 cones during the weekdays and 300 on the weekends.
They say their location at 2122 Broadway is a perfect spot for their business.
“We really like it,” said Harder. “I mean we get a lot of traffic which is great especially on the weekends with teenagers that are out cruising that come by. It has been a good spot.”
This business actually started last year selling cotton candy out of a wooden booth.
Sweet V’s conducted business at Oregon Trail Days and other events.
Harder was nervous at first about this newest business venture while Villagrana was not.
Villagrana is known as the risk taker making his dreams come true.
“Without the community, we wouldn’t be open up today,” said Villagrana. “If our community keeps coming to us, we are here to provide them with different and unique things that we can’t always get in the small towns. Yeah, they have them in the big, metro cities including Denver, Omaha and Chicago, but things like Pineapple Express or our snow cone thing here behind me, you don’t have those.”
Sweet V’s is open Wednesday through Sunday from 11:00am to 10:00pm and closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Staff will provide a 4th of July party and specials starting between 7:30pm to 8:30pm.
This will include the lighting up of fireworks and patrons can bring their own.
They will have small and big bundle raffles.
To join, all you have to do is order a snow cone.
