As the hot, dry summer begins to take its hold on Los Alamos, a new icy treat will be available to help residents survive the heat.
Local orthodontist Dr. Devan Vest and his partner Dan Richards recently launched their new business venture Northshore Shave Ice Co. to provide the community with a unique summer treat.
They began the season last week at the White Rock Kite Festival with plans to keep regular hours at Vest’s practice this summer.
The concept for the business came many years earlier as the two were attending a small college and rooming together on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. Both Vest and Richards fondly recount visiting the local shave ice vendor, to seek relief from a hot, salty day at the beach.
“We would often spend the day at Waimea Bay and, when sufficiently salt crusted and sun baked, we would head over to Matsumoto’s in Haleiwa for shave ice,” Richards said. It was at this shop that the two hatched the idea of owning their own shave ice business someday.
