Snow cone trucks, $100K donation, City of Destin being sued + more!

To: Daily Rundown Readers

Good morning!

Looking for a fun addition to your next birthday party, family reunion or event? Johnny’s Snowcones, a locally owned mobile snow cone truck, has you covered. They’ll come park at your event and serve snow cones for your guests!

John and Melissa Henderson of Freeport created Johnny’s Snowcones not only as a business opportunity, but also as an opportunity to make memories. Ironically, when they first met, Melissa was working in a snow cone stand outside of Anglers on Okaloosa Island. This was a driving factor of picking snow cones over anything else they could have made.
