Local man Shane Davis has won the inaugural CentreLine Entrepreneur of the Year Award after doing what was thought impossible; selling ice to eskimoes.
“Yeah mate been told my whole life I could sell ice to eskimoes so had a crack last year. Turns out they love it. Find it really moreish.”
“Just went up to Nunavut, went to a few trade shows, handed out some samples. After they’d tried it a few times, they kept coming back! Even when they had run out of money they wanted more, so I’ve run some lines of credit. One bloke offered to build me an igloo but I’m in Karratha so yeah nah it’s probably not a good deal.”
“Next I’m going to get Mrs Fields’ to sell my line of disco bickies.”
