Sammy’s Snowballs opens for season

On Sunday, March 1, Sammy’s Snowballs opened its doors for summer 2020! 

This summer, Sammy’s will continue to offer Mint Hill the same New Carolina Style shaved ice and Sammy Shakes people know and love.  “We’re thinking about possibly bringing out some other products later in the summer,” says ownership. “We’re still trying to develop those right now.”

This season brings a facelift to Sammy’s familiar bright yellow facade: a brick patio area, a colorful flower garden, ten brand-new wooden tables with bright red umbrellas, and even free WiFi for customers.  Look for more changes down the line like additional seating and a new wooden fence, which will coordinate with the picnic tables.

“It was good before, but we want to make it bigger and better!” says ownership  “We’re trying to encourage kids, you know, the high schools that don’t have somewhere to hang out, to come up here and do their homework and enjoy a snowball at the end of the day.”

While you’re enjoying your Snowball or Sammy’s Shake, make sure to snap a picture at the new selfie station in the fenced-in backyard.  Also take advantage of Sammy’s new loyalty program. For just $.50, buy a loyalty card that earns you a free snowball after four purchases.

Just like past summers, Mama K’s will continue to sell their fresh-popped kettle corn.
