At just 20-years-old, Blake Pyron is Sanger, Texas' youngest business owner. He also happens to have Down Syndrome. The former Sanger High School football captain and prom king opened Blake's Snow Shack, because of his passion for flavored ice. Blake became the only business owner in the state of Texas with Down Syndrome, a distinction that has been acknowledged by Texas Senator Ted Cruz and the United States Senate with an official proclamation.
Blake's Snow Shack isn't hard to locate, with its bright yellow exterior -- you can most certainly spot this yellow truck. There you will find his equally bright smile, and Blake more than willing to give you his favorite flavor recommendations. With 23 flavors to choose from, there is something for everyone. Blake's passion and kindness are infectious. He has brought his whole community together with his business and friendship!
