Fun parties for kids with games, dancing, and sundaes in a fifties-style ice cream parlor. No planning, set-up or clean-up for mom and dad. That was the vision Michelle Violetto had for Little Scoops. Five years later, she and partner Tanya Ehrlich have hosted hundreds of parties and opened nine more locations. SCORE counselors Peter Gordy and Marty Kahn helped them develop a business plan, set up finances and evaluate locations for the first Little Scoops shop, which opened in 2002. Today, Violetto and Ehrlich are franchising Little Scoops nationwide “Many of our female friends have started their own businesses. We refer them all to SCORE. It’s a great organization.”
