Kona Ice Brings a One-of-a-Kind Experience to Residents in Atlanta
Mobile Franchise Expands in Georgia, Giving Back to Community Schools and Organizations
October 20, 2022 // Franchising.com // ATLANTA, Ga. - Bringing tropical tunes and cups of shaved ice everywhere it stops, Kona Ice is expanding in Atlanta. 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 Atlanta, Cascade Springs, Grant Park, Lakewood and other surrounding areas.
“I became interested in Kona Ice after my wife used their service for my daughter's 17th birthday party. I immediately began to research and saw a lot of wonderful aspects about the company that aligned with my own values,” said Lionel Myers, owner of Kona Ice of Cascade Springs. “After speaking with other franchisees, it was a confirmation for me that this was the place I should be. The service was great, the product is great, and the company is great.”
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.
“This business is a great fit for my lifestyle,” said Myers. “I love to serve people. I served for years in the United States Navy, and after exiting the Navy I served the citizens of DeKalb County Georgia for 20 years as Law Enforcement Officer. I'm a social butterfly and this was the perfect place for me.”
Dedicated to making a difference in local areas, Kona Ice continues to be committed to philanthropy in the communities it serves, raising $100 million in total donations nationwide since 2007. Myers 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. Myers pledges to give back a percentage of the proceeds from each event he hosts.
“Lionel shares our commitment to giving back,” said Tony Lamb, founder and president of Florence, Ky.-based Kona Ice. “He has always been very passionate about his community and wants to have a positive influence in the community, whether it’s new text books, sports uniforms or, simply, a smile. We are proud to have him on-board. 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 Atlanta at schools and corporate events.
