Kona Ice Franchise Opportunity
Kona was everything we were looking for. It was colorful, it was exciting...people come up to the truck happy and go away happier.
This has been a game changer for my life, because it's given me experiences for my family. I wouldn't have a way of connecting with them from a work perspective. I'm very passionate about creating memories for my kids. This is a way of showing them another side of the world, not just fun and play, but hey let's go have fun and play and work with Kona. My family is proud of the business we've created here.

KONOLOGY: The Business of Shaved Ice
We place a great deal of our time and resources on the continuous education of our franchisees. If every franchisee had the same information as our most successful franchisee, then everyone has the potential to succeed. We cover such topics as:
Additional Kona Support
We sell shaved ice, but we care about much more than that. Company-wide, Kona Ice has given back and raised over $100 million dollars to communities and organizations all across the country since our inception in 2007. It's more a part of who we are than any other aspect of our brand. It is how we operate. To put it simply, selling the world's most incredible shaved ice is what we do, but giving back is who we are.
One of the best things about Kona Ice is that the business model is simple. The brand works for you--not the other way around. And because we're a mobile franchise, this allows you to be directly involved in your community at every touch point. Our goal at Corporate is to make your Kona Ice experience as enjoyable and stress-free as eating a cup of shaved ice!
MEET THE KEV: The Kona Entertainment Vehicle
Having built over 1,500 of these wonderful trucks, Kona Ice has perfected the KEV. This state-of-the-art truck is literally a mobile billboard for your business--it sells itself!
ANCILLARY EQUIPMENT: Year Round Opportunities
We're not just a shaved ice truck--we have units of every size for any venue. Once you own a Kona truck, you will have access to:
Incredibly Low Overhead
Everyone's favorite feature of the Kona Ice truck is the ability to load up on flavors to their heart's content. In a day and age where self-serve dessert is all the rage, Kona has taken the extra step for the mobile shaved ice industry with our patented Flavorwave.
One Of A Kind Experience
Kona doesn't just sell gourmet shaved ice, it brings an unforgettable experience that appeals to the kid in all of us!
Kona Ice's reputation is proclaimed as being one of the most innovative brands around. With a "be your own boss" mentality, the business has ranked #1 in Franchisee Satisfaction by the Franchise Business Review nine years in a row. In fact, Entrepreneur Magazine ranked them the #1 New Franchise. Kona Ice is thriving across the United States--from New Hampshire to California. And as of 2014, it's been proven to work in three international markets as well. The best part? Roughly 75% of franchisees are so successful, they're purchasing a second unit within the first two years.
Kreations Flavoring: A Proprietary Nutritious Product
Who knew shaved ice could be healthy? Kona Ice is redefining dessert by creating a nutritious and delicious treat. Our constant innovation puts us on a pathway to success. The food and beverage industry is becoming exceedingly harder to excel in with the nutrition standards that have been put in place. The innovative and progressive spirit that our company was founded on continues in our search to provide a healthy option for our customers. Through our sister company, Kreations Flavoring, we have worked with flavor scientists to procure a completely proprietary product. From the nutritious base filled with vitamins and sweetened with all-natural Stevia, to the flavor line we've developed that surpasses all other flavors currently available in the market, we believe we have the healthiest and most delicious shaved ice option around! Because we develop our own products, we're constantly creating new flavors that can only be found with Kona Ice and discovering ways to make our product better for our customers.
In 2017, we unveiled our brand new Kona Krafted flavor line. With flavors that were specifically developed to cater to a more adult audience, we've been able to expand segments of the business like never before. After conducting rigorous market research, we have found and curated flavors for our customers to love: Aprium Rosé Sangria, Blackberry Mojito, Blueberry Acai +, Bourbon Black Cherry Vanilla, Caramel Macchiato, Caribbean Cherry +, Citrus Sour Swizzle, Coconut Lime, French Vanilla Latte, Lavender Lemonade, Mai Thai, Moonflower Passionfruit, Pineapple Cream, Pineapple Sunrise, Pomegranate Acai +, Sour Berry Blast, and Watermelon Mint. We are continuously crafting new flavors to introduce, and we just know our guests will want to try them all!
