Everyone is familiar with the present system of purchasing ice at grocery or convenience stores. You've probably experienced it yourself; standing in line to pay, collecting your bag (if you remember), and at some point, banging the ice on a hard surface to break it into useable pieces and sometimes breaking the bag. "Twice the frustration"
With an Ice House, ice is produced and
delivered to the consumer using a unique patented vending strategy. In 8
seconds, a 16 pound bag of ice is bagged and dispensed - or 20 pounds of
bulk ice is dropped directly into the consumer's cooler - at half the
local market price. The ice is chipped, deliciously chewable, and never
frozen together in hard chunks. This fully automated, self-serve Ice
House delivers ice 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
We believe our ice is the cleanest, safest
ice on the market today. Ice World Journal reports that according to the
CDC, "Hand-based contamination is one of the leading sources for passing
illness...". Our ice is never touched by human hands. All materials that
come in contact with our ice during production are made of 100% food
grade stainless steel. Once produced, the ice is stored in a self
contained food grade stainless steel bin. After the customer deposits
his/her money, ice is mechanically dropped into a bag or bulk shut and
is delivered to the customer automatically.
