Why Franchise?

Ice House America created IceBorn, the world’s best bulk water and ice vending brand. Our tagline is Fresh from the Source, which is our promise to consumers of our brand’s freshness,quality, and convenience.


Ice Vending is Growing

We have five U.S. patents to protect our technology. All of them are crucial to our brand in terms of product quality, durability, efficiency, and cost-savings. Our patents allow our machines to facilitate our brand promise.
Ice vending represents 4% of the $4 billion ice industry. Our franchisees are leading the way to capitalize on that growth.

We Value Innovation
