This entrepreneur has found a nice niche in the ice cream market and is doing well on the river in York. On reflection, I am surprised no-one has 'floated' this idea before. Good luck to the guy for his enterprising idea. What say you? TC.

And I remember when they used to deliver it on a bike.

I think the profit from selling ice cream in the 60s was about 300% not sure what the profit margin is nowadays.

I know that it is that expensive that we don't buy from the ice cream van any more.

£1 at McDonalds and that is about my limit.And it's nice.

There's been an ice cream/tea and coffee selling barge moored on the canal adjacent to Salts Mill @ Saltaire for quite some time. Does quite a nice trade as it's also adjacent to a park and sports area plus the walkers/cyclists on the tow path.

It's always good to see someone with a bit of initiative having a go. I hope his business is a great success.

"In what respect?"

A hundred litres or so of cooking oil in a moving vehicle at a temperature of around 180 C would present a considerable scald and fire risk in even a minor accident.

Surely you would have identified that one.
