About Us

In 2003 Ice House America opened the first ice vending machine in the world, revolutionizing how ice was bought and sold. We combined the convenience of a drive up vending machine, with the quality of ice bagged and sold without ever touching human hands. This ground-breaking idea paired with the like minds of entrepreneurs all over the country allowed Ice House America to successfully place over 3,300 ice & water vending machines worldwide. We would never have been able to bring our quality ice & water to a city near you without our amazing group of franchisee / owners, totaling over 1,000 strong in the last 15 years alone.

Our franchisees are a true representation of IceBorn. Some have been with us since the brand started and others have recently joined the vended ice & water business. We all share one passion, watching our happy customers experience the best ice & water possible. We could not be where we are today without their continued growth and drive to bring the IceBorn product to a market near you.

If you would like to become a franchisee please contact us directly to learn about opportunities in your area, otherwise keep an eye out for an owner next time you are visiting a IceBorn machine and say hello.
