Ice House America, the pioneer in automated ice vending technology, announced this week the signing of the companyâ€™s first area developer, Joe Tooke, for the greater Tucson area, including Nogales.
This announcement follows on the heels of the companyâ€™s recently created franchise program to further expand its existing network of over 2,400 locations, which collectively produce over one billion pounds of ice per year.
There are more than 100 corporate-owned locations with the balance independently owned and operated.
Ice House America manufactures a convenient retail ice destination offering a soft, chipped and chewable ice, which is typically offered in 20 lb. bulk ice (direct to cooler) and 16 lb. bagged ice â€” always filtered, clean and made on demand, according to a company press release.
