Hello media friends and fellow snow cone addicts.
My name is Chris Von Wilpert. I started Snowy Joey on February 11, 2006 when I was 17 after high school, and have run it ever since.
We are now the #1 kids party hire business in Australia!
The business has donated over $100,000 cash to our customers (sports clubs and schools) from the sale of our snow cones and fairy floss. I credit this to our great crew!
My contact email: chris [at] snowyjoey.com.au
Rosanne (Operations Manager): rosanne [at] snowyjoey.com.au
Our customers include Bunnings, QLD Reds, Telstra, Specsavers, Suncorp, Foxtel, Australia Zoo + hundreds of local clubs and schools who book us for their events.
