Kelvin Natural Slush Co.

kelvin-largeBusiness partners Zack Silverman and Alex Rein both decided to ditch the desk in favor of getting behind a mobile food truck, peddling gourmet refreshers for grown-ups. Former attorneys, Zack and Alex grew up drinking slushes, but in their adult years, the convenience store treat became a little too sweet for their palates. In 2010, together they founded Kelvin Natural Slush Co. with the hope of making the slush cool again.

Kelvin Natural Slush Co. offers three base flavors: Spicy Ginger, Tangy Citrus or Green & Black Tea. From here, customers can customize their slush by adding a “mix-in” consisting of real fruit purées from The Perfect Purée like White Peach, Raspberry, Pink Guava, Green Apple, Carmelized Pineapple, Cherry, Pear, Blueberry, Mango and Strawberry, or fresh chopped mint or basil.

Zack’s sister-in-law, a pastry chef, introduced him to The Perfect Purée. Zack and Alex have been using the purees since Day One. On a typical summer day, Kelvin Natural Slush Co. will serve between 500 and 1,000 slushes, so using the purees is convenient and the flavors are always consistent. Real fruit purees from The Perfect Purée give Kelvin the opportunity to provide fresh iced treats to their customers throughout multiple locations, meaning customers know what they’re getting every time. Flavors rotate, but the White Peach puree has proven to be the most popular mix-in puree.

Today Kelvin Natural Slush Co. has expanded from the mobile slush truck, which New Yorkers have grown to love and seek out, to working with some of the city’s top restaurants, offering their sophisticated slush favors for use behind the bar in frozen cocktails. The Perfect Purée concentrates work well in this application as they blend well with the alcohol. Customers can also find Kelvin Slushes by way of their cart, at local food festivals and events.

With the wide variety of puree flavors available, Kelvin Natural Slush Co. can always offer seasonal flavors and refreshing fruit taste.
