The Opportunity

“In a world of franchise opportunities, you have to stand out. You must get noticed and to do this, you must be different from the rest.”

– John Smotryski

321º Below Zero

We’re different from all other ice cream shops because Wicked Lick freezes the cream with liquid nitrogen (LN). LN is 321 degrees below zero so when it is introduced to the cream while being mixed, it freezes into a super smooth and creamy consistency that when it hits your taste buds, you experience the most amazing texture that enhances the flavor and delivers a taste not available by any other technique.

Small Batches

We’re different from all other liquid nitrogen ice cream shops because Wicked Lick crafts our ice cream in small batches, generally about a half-gallon at a time. Crafting ice cream in small batches takes nearly half the liquid nitrogen and requires less time to serve our customers which translates into higher savings and higher earnings. This new concept is the first ever Hybrid Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream shop.


We’re different than all of them because our merchandise sells, and what better way to remember their Wicked Lick experience than to take it home with them. T-Shirts, Stickers, Coozies and Hats with our slogan on them is one of the best ideas we had. People buy our merch not just for themselves but for gifts too… and by the way, we sell a lot of merchandise.

“Fun flavors. Pistachio is a must-have. The employee was super helpful and thorough with her explanations of each flavor. Thanks for the customer service and even better ice cream!”

“Everything was soooo good! We had PB&J and Cookie Butter Caramel. They were both delicious. The owner was incredibly nice and let us try whatever we wanted. The waffle chips were a great surprise. Try them! We’ll definitely be back for more.”

Sam Gamble  –  another happy customer

“This is the freshest ice cream you will have ever eaten most likely and all of it is made in VERY small batches. It was probably the best ice cream I’ve ever had and my friend that visited with me agreed! You should 100% try it! Totally worth the price and the owner is incredibly welcoming and kind.”
