The "Snack Cruiser" Makes Waves on the Potomac River

When school is out many parents say they want their kids to get to work. One local mother told her two youngest children just that, but gave them a head start.

WASHINGTON COUNTY, MD-  When school is out many parents say they want their kids to get to work. One local mother told her two youngest children just that, but gave them a head start. 

"Get you ice cold drinks and snacks at the "Snack Cruiser!" yells Kim Anderson, founder of the "Snack Cruiser."

Kim started a family business and named it the "Snack Cruiser."

"We came up with this; they'll be employed, have money and have fun. We can spend quality time together at the same time," said Kim. 

You could call it a floating profession. Kim is fully stocked with cold sports drinks, sodas and wrapped snacks and says the idea was a no-brainer.

"I came up here tubing for the last six or seven years, and we always joked about wanting some water on the water, or wouldn't it be nice to get a water? So then I thought, just go for it," said Kim.

When she applied for a local permit, she says she got a similar reaction to her friends and family.

"Huh? What are you going to do?" laughs Kim.

Yet she says it's paid off. On Fridays and Saturdays, then every other Sunday, you can find Kim here along the Potomac River if you want to cool off.

"Whenever it's nice out, if the weather is good and the river is run-able. I found out sometimes it's not run-able: nobody shows up, but I researched how to find that out. It's been an adventure," said Kim. 

An adventure she says she hopes to continue for every summer for a long time.
