In 2008, Lindsay Laricks decided to follow a whim. She took a deep breath and left a fruitful career in design to make snow cones for a living. With a brain for branding, a love of all-natural food and a sweet tooth the size of Texas, 'the snow cone lady' of Kansas City was born. She began selling her signature all-natural snow cones out of a vintage Shasta trailer and in May of 2012, she opened Little Freshie, a handcrafted soda fountain & espresso bar. Her frosty and fizzy concoctions have been praised by publications including the New York Times, InStyle Magazine and Imbibe Magazine, and are enjoyed by a steady stream of KC locals seeking simple, home grown pleasures.
