Clovis residents Stephen Powell and Chris Foster are working hard to open a surf-themed shaved ice shop called Bahama Buck’s early this summer.
The shop will also serve smoothies and other cool treats in a tropical setting, like a beach or surf shop, Powell said.
Powell and Foster, who started working together about a year ago, found Bahama Buck’s a good fit.
Powell is president of Patriot Outdoors and was looking for a “different opportunity.”
Foster had worked with a local service industry for 17 years and was interested in a food service business.
Attractions of the franchise are that the business is Christian-owned, family centered and employee-friendly.
“It will be a clean environment for youth, a place for people to meet and hang out,” Powell said.
Bahama Buck’s will offer about 80 flavors for shaved ice — not including flavor combinations and smoothies.
The business is under construction on North Prince Street, near Checker Auto and the Sherwin Williams paint store.
