The McDowell Chamber of Commerce was pleased to celebrate the opening of Pelican’s Snoballs of Marion with an official ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, August 7, 2018. Pelican’s Snoballs is one of the many new businesses to open in our growing community and a recent graduate of the Growing Entrepreneurs Marion Program.   
Owners Jaysun Lyles and Lisa Taylor had a vision to open a community-oriented business that provided fun and flavor at the same time. After meeting with the original franchise owners of Pelican’s Snoballs, they realized that this was the type of business they wanted to be a part of; community-based and service-oriented.  Jaysun and Lisa have a lofty motto at their store “Changing the world, one snoball at a time.” This motto influences the way they run their business, hire and manage the staff, engage their customers, and invest through fundraising in McDowell County.  
Born from a New Orleans tradition of combining smooth fluffy snow with bold flavors, Pelican’s Snoballs has been serving over 100 fantastic flavors to its customers for over 15 years. Come by and visit them to find your favorite flavor!
