Wisconsin teen starts unique ice cream business in Two Rivers
TWO RIVERS, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A new business is making waves up near the Fox Cities and bringing along an unfamiliar take on ice cream cones.
The cones are made from donuts, and the owner is a teenager.
17-year-old CEO Emilee Rysticken graduated from high school just recently.
She got the idea for her "Scream 'N Conuts" on a class trip to Prague during her freshman year, when interesting looking cakes inspired her million dollar idea.
"I found these chimney cakes, which I call my 'Conut' doughnut cone," Rysticken said. "And I thought that's a great idea, I'm going to do that back home."
Emilee's enthusiasm convinced her parents to take out a loan for the building.
Now she's got employees, many of them former classmates.
The teen says she also has loyal customers and a perfected recipe.You can find "Scream 'N Conuts" in Two Rivers.
