States shut down Heavenly Sno, but Joy Wood plans to reopen this spring

WICHITA — One day after Joy Wood converted her Heavenly Sno shaved ice stand into a food truck, the state shut it down due to about $10,000 in unpaid taxes.

Wood has operated the stand by the Home Depot near K-96 and Woodlawn for 15 years.

Earlier this month, she told Have You Heard? that she was expanding her line of products to include barbecue brisket, homemade chili and baked beans, baked potatoes, Polish sausages, hot dogs and cobbler.

Wood now is hoping to reopen the stand in time for spring sales, if not sooner, though she's not sure if those sales will include more than shaved ice.

"I wasn't able to even do it for more than one day," Wood says of the other food, "so I don't know."
