Mobile Franchise Expands in Washington, Giving Back to Community Schools and Organizations
May 25, 2022 // Franchising.com // PUYALLUP, Wash. - Bringing tropical tunes and cups of shaved ice everywhere it stops, Kona Ice is expanding in Puyallup. 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 Puyallup, South Hill and Graham.
“As parents of four, my wife Kimberly and I like to do things that are not only in my best interest, but my children as well,” said Ryan Sand, co-owner of Kona Ice of Puyallup. “We knew Kona Ice was the best fit for us because we shared the same morals and values. Kona Ice is something that our entire family could be involved in, and I’m excited to bring Kona Ice to Puyallup.”
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.
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. Sand 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. Sand pledges to give back a percentage of the proceeds from each event he hosts.
“Ryan and Kimberly share our commitment to community involvement and positive impacts,” said Tony Lamb, founder and president of Florence, Ky.-based Kona Ice. “He has the right amount of attitude and ambition that will touch the hearts of Puyallup residents. We are excited to bring the Sand Family on board. Get ready Puyallup! You’re in for a cool treat!
Beyond fundraisers, popular spots for the food truck franchise include stops throughout Puyallup at fairs, festivals and corporate events.
