I think that you will find the local ice cream sellers would give you a lot of hassle unless you find an area where there is no local ice cream van and to be honest I think that any decent area is already covered.
Cypriots do not like anyone taking their trade and can cause a huge amount of trouble for anyone who does.

I think ice cream truck sellers create problems to anyone who "invades their territory" no matter where in the world they are, no matter what kind of ice cream they sell.

On second thought though, I don't know if you would still have to defend yourself for selling frappe out of a truck on beaches that don't have a kiosk!

The safest thing is do something that isnt already being done so you are not stepping on anyones toes.

Hi Tony
Cyprus has had some reported business competition trouble recently, like most of the world at the moment. Being a smaller island, competition can be very fierce from what I have read.

Rickshaw owners verses Taxi Drivers In Paphos and Ayia Napa. Taxi drivers and Bus drivers also, so really look into any kind of business venture. This has all been reported in all local Papers, but from what I understand, you do not want to step into other peoples areas.
I wish you well with whatever you decide.

Tony,

There has to be a niche in the market for selling decent coffee instead of that bitter stuff with bits in that seems to be standard over there. Or fresh smoothies??
