About Texas Sno
The idea for Texas Sno was born in the middle of the worst heatwave and drought Texas has seen in the last 100 years. Yes, the great drought of 2011 was good for something. Nan and Charles Scott, the original owners of Texas Sno were determined to do their part to cool Katy, off.In January 2017, Heather Cook became the new owner of Texas Sno with the objective of serving the Katy community New Orleans style snoballs. Most of the staff, including the former owner, came back to work with big smiles. Many New Orleans businesses consulted Texas Sno , including the owner of Rainbow Delites and Bayou Brothers Seafood. Texas Sno reopened on March 1st, and became a big success. Texas Sno opened their 1st location nicknamed "Big Red". Within two weeks, Texas Sno opened their 2nd location, lovingly called "Little Yellow".
In October 2019, Heather Cook sold Texas Sno to Travis Debenport, his wife, Kelsie Dartayet, and his parents, Giles and Kristen Debenport. Travis Debenport is a Custom Car/Hot Rod Enthusiast and is married to a 5th Grade Teacher, Kelsie Dartayet. Travis and Kelsie grew up in Katy and graduated from Katy High School and Cinco Ranch High School. Kelsie went on to graduate from The University of Houston in 2017 and soon after began her career in Katy ISD. Kelsie has a passion for teaching and brings that passion to her students at West Memorial Elementary. Travis and Kelsie have been married since 2017 and together they have a daughter named Catalina. Together they love attending car shows, traveling, and spending time with their family and friends.
Giles and Kristen Debenport’s passion for the great outdoors led them to open their own landscaping business, Katy Landscaping, in 2000. Together they’ve helped many Katy residents create the yard of their dreams. When they aren’t creating beautiful landscape designs, Giles and Kristen love bringing joy to many families by spreading Christmas cheer as Mr. and Mrs. Clause at Santa’s Wonderland in College Station. Giles loves venturing out and exploring the vast rivers and creek beds throughout our region in search of fossils and minerals. While her husband is rockhounding, Kristen is a foodie at heart. She has an avid interest in the latest food fads and appreciates all that fine food can offer: taste, smell, and visual presentation.
Together we are beyond excited to continue the legacy of the world famous New Orleans style snoballs here in Katy, TX. This sweet treat has been a staple in New Orleans desserts since before the 1930s. Texas Sno uses an ice-shaving machine, called the SnoWizard to turn blocks of ice into fine, fluffy snow. We then flavor it with your flavor of choice, and serve it up with a smile. We have the softest ice and a wide assortment of vibrant flavors - in short, the very best snoballs in Katy! You will love your snoball - we guarantee it!
- We start out with filtered water to make our syrups and ice.
- We order our cream straight from New Orleans and use only the best New Orleans blades and machinery.
- We use only the best concentrates straight from New Orleans.
- Friendly service.
