Entrepreneur and Texas resident Etienne Konan has enjoyed a high level of success in his ownership of several independent businesses. Since 2010, Etienne Konan has operated AK Ice Cream, which is located on Highway 26 near Bedford, Texas. Each morning, he verifies that his trucks are fully stocked with products from Texas Blue Bunny and Yumi Ice Cream Company in Dallas. Etienne Konan also works diligently to maintain his trucks in a serviceable condition, and ensures that all of his dairy products are properly frozen so that they will be safe for consumption by children. Throughout the course of the day, he also handles customer service issues, treating each of his clients with dignity and respect.
In addition to AK Ice Cream, Mr. Konan recently opened Konan Tax Service & Salon, and owns a smoke shop in Coleyville. He intends to consolidate all of his businesses in the same location as his ice cream venture.
