Get Shaved was created by husband and wife, Pat and Kristin Roskowick, in 2008 and was inspired by a love of all things sweet and frozen.
Kristin is a self-proclaimed ice cream fanatic who as a child born and raised in Massachusetts would beg her mother to trudge through 3 feet of snow in the winter for ice cream.
Pat’s love for shave ice began from an early age growing up in the San Fernando Valley. In the summertime there was never a shortage of raspados carts around the neighborhood or shave ice at Venice and Paradise Cove Beaches.
It wasn’t until they tried Hawaiian style shave ice that their taste buds short circuited from an explosion of mouth watering ecstasy. That was it…the combination of finely shaved ice along with creamy ice cream and sweetened condensed milk was over the top! It then became their mission to provide the finest tasting Hawaiian style shave ice to the people all over Los Angeles.
They started with a mobile truck traveling the streets of LA and quickly developed a stellar reputation for being the best authentic Hawaiian shave ice around. Flash forward 6 years later and they’ve now grown to 4 storefront locations and 2 mobile trucks. They have well over 1000 reviews on Yelp with a 4 1/2 star average and were voted one of the top 5 best dessert trucks in LA by CBS!
