Serving the community since 1970

Wasco Sno-Shack: A summer tradition for over 3 decades

Wasco Sno-Shack is a seasonal business open from late May through Labor Day. With its doors open now, customers have the popular shaved ice cones in time for the summer heat.

The business has served the community for the last 34 years. It is family owned, founded by Elvia Garza in 1991 and passed down to her daughter, Stella Guerra, in 2010.

As a proud owner, Guerra said she will continue to cherish the family tradition of making the best snow cones since 1991. "It has been an honor to work at this beloved local establishment, nestled in the heart of Wasco," she said in an interview last week. "Serving the community for over three decades has been a blessing for me and my family. Each summer, my family and I are blessed to have other family members and close friends join us in running the Sno-Shack. It's truly a team effort filled with love and dedication."

This year marks a special milestone because her children have begun to immerse themselves in the family business. "They are learning the ropes, from delivering stellar customer service to mastering the art of creating consistent, high-quality recipes. It's wonderful to see my children taking an interest and understanding the value of hard work and community connection. It warms my heart to see my daughters talking to the customers, taking orders with confidence, making the snow cones and blending the acai just as I do. It reminds me of how I would help my mother when I was only ten years of age."

Wasco Sno-Shack is more than just a place to enjoy delicious shaved ice; it's a cornerstone of the community. "Customers will be greeted with a "hello," and I truly emphasize the importance of having a positive attitude for every customer we service. We want to provide top-notch service."

In the near future, she said, "I would like to expand the business with a mobile truck that will bring our soft ice and delicious snow cones, acai bowls and nachos to any event."

Guerra plans to pass the business down to one of her kids or another family member. "Until then, my family and I will commit to excellence and serve the community. We thank the community and look forward to welcoming everyone. Whether you're a long-time fan or a first-time visitor, Wasco Sno-Shack promises a refreshing and delightful experience every summer."

Wasco Sno-Shack, 517 F St., is open Sunday- Friday from noon to 9 p.m. and Saturday until 7 p,m. They are on Facebook at Wasco Snow-Shack.
