Thank you so much! 

It was a pleasure to have you as a teacher not only for your knowledge that you have but also for the relaxed atmosphere and also the flexibility that you have.  Thank you also for showing that the road is not so easy too!

I am so glad that I took the time to go to Scoop School. As an ice cream shop owner ,

I learned many things that will help my shop run smoother and increase both productivity and profitability. The atmosphere was very relaxed and enjoyable and I looked forward to each day we were there.

Steve is a fantastic teacher and truly knows his subject. I can't wait to put into practice the things I learned. I highly recommend this course to everyone who is considering an ice cream career as well as those already in the business

​"Can't wait to use all the knowledge gained. Hands-on experience was invaluable, and Steve was filled with gems of insight. Segments on store management, financial spreadsheets and site layout were just as helpful as actual ice cream production.  Thanks"

"The Hour of Power, a Great way to get Organized. I attended Penn State Ice Cream 101 and in April completed the FDI course in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

So many ideas, so little time? Start with the Hour of Power to get organized. My direction and goals can be seen more clearly now. Steve was very generous with his time, a lot was accomplished in a very short amount of time. If you are prepared, Steve will be able to help you. The shortest distance to your goal is a straight line. Steve can help you find your straight line of thinking.   Thanks Steve!"

"I got so much out of this course. Steve's knowledge and his willingness to share information was invaluable.  

He is passionate about the business and it shows.    I would recommend Steve's  courses to anyone getting into this business"

It was very informative and relaxed so that everyone was able to engage in the conversations happening and ask questions. Sometimes the questions asked turned into some of the more valuable information I took away from the class. I also thought it was great that we got a hands on experience with various ice cream equipment and making ice cream products.

This class was awesome! I feel like I now have a very solid foundation to build my ice cream store off of because of all of the valuable lessons I learned at Scoop School!

Everything taught at Scoop School has a very clear and practical application. Attending this class has made the process of starting an ice cream store simpler and more focused. 10/10

There are some ice cream course around the country but FDI is the best one. It exceed my expectation about the 3 days course with Steve Christensen (the guru of frozen custard) It is the best investment for your knowledge if you want to become an independent ice cream shop owner.

This is the course that helps you from the ground up, with all the knowledge and proficiency that Steve has, he doesn’t mind to share with all the students and he is bloody good at what he does, very professional. A lot hands on and of course you will learn how to marketing your product, how to manage your shop, how to take care of your finance, employee, customers and health code.

It’s just cover all the aspect that you need to start ice cream business. And the fun part is you taste ice cream all the time…hm yum yum
