TROPICAL EXPRESS is a Shaved Ice business that was founded by Deidra Hughes in Houston. For many years, Mrs. Hughes wanted to start her own snow cone business and provide jobs for some of the locals in her community. She had been in the food industry for over 10 years, so she knew what items would appease the taste of her community. In 2011, Deidra started her operation in the backyard of her grandmother’s house with one ice shaver.
