Abracadabra Ice Cream Factory (Kissimmee)
***** Abracadabra Ice Cream Factory, 520 North Main Street, Kissimmee, Florida 34744, (407) 201-2509.
Back on March 6, 2014 Jeff Eats told you guys about Private Island Ice Cream Company in Orlando, Florida–I also “threw” in a small bonus discussion as to the ” business-future” of liquid nitrogen ice-cream. That “article” is reprinted below.
I recently “tried” Abracadabra Ice Cream Factory in Kissimmee–which is “also” in the liquid nitrogen ice-cream business.
Just like Private Island Ice Cream Company–Jeff Eats loved Abracadabra Ice Cream Factory. Real simple, the ice cream is made using liquid nitrogen–and the number of flavors/combinations is literally endless. You can check www.abracadabraicecream.com for menu/prices/info. The joint is open 7 days a week 11am-10pm.
Personally, I could eat this liquid nitrogen ice cream stuff all day long—that said, if you can’t see a disturbing “pattern” forming-then you need some heavy duty eye glasses. What Jeff Eats sees–is video stores/is self serve yogurt stores/is gourmet fast food hamburger stores/is cupcake stores…it’s call “musical chairs” and eventually the music ends and most of the “players” lose.
TOO MANY GUYS GETTING INTO THE SAME BUSINESS!!!

Got something real cool (no pun intended) for you “Bill Nyes” out there…Private Island Ice Cream Company in Orlando.
Private Island Ice Cream Company…order at the counter-ice cream store…handful of tables inside/outside.
Kicker here–using liquid nitrogen, each flavor ordered is freshly made on the spot.
Now nothing for nothing, if Jeff Eats had paid more attention to what Mrs. Munna in 7th grade Science was talking about–I’d be in a much better position to explain to you- how, starting with a vanilla base, then adding whatever combination of fruits/candy/syrups/cereals/other stuff you’d like–then “zapping” it with liquid nitrogen, Private Island Ice Cream Company “makes” whatever flavored ice cream your mind can imagine.
Like I said 14 seconds ago…real cool.
Not going to bore you with all the clever combos Jeff Eats created–trust me, the ice cream was creamy-smooth- delicious. Otay! (courtesy: Billie “Buckwheat” Thomas) -How about this one: Nutella/fresh strawberries/pistachio nuts?
You can read all about Private Island Ice Cream Company on its website www.privateislandicecream.com.
Private Island Ice Cream is open Sunday-Thursday 1pm-9pm, Friday-Saturday 1pm-10pm.
One final note…
I just wanted you guys to know that Private Island Ice Cream Company “didn’t” invent the- liquid nitrogen ice cream-business…for our purposes, just off the top of Jeff Eats’ head- I can name two similar type “operations” with Florida outposts- Chill-N and Subzero (Chill-N currently has 1 joint in Miami and Subzero has 2 joints in Sarasota). For what it’s worth, I love the concept–as it’s a new spin on the old ice-cream store game. Now, for the $64,000 question: Will this latest ice-cream concept- become an over saturated/over franchised business–that will end badly for most of its operators? “Que sera, sera” (courtesy:Doris Day), wink-wink…you smart guys out there “already” know what lies -ahead!
Looked at the business model and I have to agree that we will soon be seeing this type of store popping up all over the country. Followed by a huge busted bubble.
Loads of them will open and most will then close. It’s just a gimmick that will last for a few years. By the way I’v had the ice cream at Chill n and its very good.
A similar concept called Phenomeon opened by me in Boca Raton. Jammed with kids at night. Ice cream and cookies are good. I see FAD written all over this concept.
