Kona Ice Brings a One-of-a-Kind Experience to Residents in Muletown
Mobile Franchise Expands in Tennessee, Giving Back to Schools and Community Organizations
May 24, 2022 // Franchising.com // COLUMBIA, Tenn. - Bringing tropical tunes and cups of shaved ice everywhere it stops, Kona Ice is expanding in Tennessee. Introducing its distinctive blend of entertainment, gourmet frozen treats and FUN-draising, the Kona Ice experience is unlike any other in the area. Serving up good vibes in a cool ride, Kona Ice is now cruisin’ through Muletown and all of Maury County.
“My first experience with Kona Ice was five years ago and I’ve been attracted to the opportunity ever since,” said Jordan Ray, owner of Kona Ice Muletown. “I am heavily involved in my church and we contribute to our community often, which is why I was so attracted to Kona Ice. Our family owned and operated a local restaurant throughout my teenage years, so I thought Kona Ice would be a great thing for us to do together as well."
Kona Ice’s escape from the ordinary begins as the sounds of tropical calypso music fills the air at each event and group gathering. The fun continues as all in attendance get their overflowing cups of freshly shaved ice and then help themselves to any of the ten tastes on the truck’s Flavorwave™, Kona’s innovative self-service dispensing system that allows for full customization. Guests also have the option to choose from the additional 20-plus flavors and 500 different combinations offered.
“We’ve been receiving a lot of positive feedback from residents of Columbia. We generated some buzz on social media and our neighbors are super excited to have a Kona Ice truck nearby,” said Ray. “There is a huge food truck presence in our community, so I know our truck will thrive here. We can’t wait to get to work and grow with our neighbors.”
Dedicated to making a difference in local areas, Kona Ice continues to be committed to philanthropy in the communities it serves, raising more than $100 million in total donations nationwide since 2007. Ray is continuing the world’s largest food truck franchise’s tradition of donating thousands of dollars each year to local school groups, teams, and community organizations. Ray pledges to give back a percentage of the proceeds from each event she hosts.
“Jordan shares our commitment to community involvement,” said Tony Lamb, founder and president of Florence, Ky.-based Kona Ice. “She has always been very passionate about giving back to her community and wants to have a positive influence wherever he goes. Together, we are excited to make a difference in the lives of those around us.”
Beyond fundraisers, popular spots for the food truck franchise include stops throughout Maury County at fairs, festivals and neighborhoods.
