This First-Ever Ranking by Entrepreneur Acknowledges that IceBorn is one of the Top Franchise Brands in the U.S.
Ice House America, the pioneer in automated ice and water vending technology, is proud to announce that its franchise brand, IceBorn, has landed on Entrepreneur Magazine’s first-ever Top Franchise Brands list. This list recognizes the 200 franchisors that have built the strongest brands, based on data submitted for Entrepreneur’s 2017 Franchise 500® ranking.
To determine which franchises have the strongest brands, Entrepreneur analyzed factors such as social media followers, system size, number of years in business, number of years franchising, and overall reputation—and looked at how they all combine to form lasting relationships with fans. IceBorn’s position on the ranking shows that the brand has truly made a name for itself through franchising.
Under the IceBorn brand, franchisees have access to three (3) ice and water vending machine models – all are freestanding, 24/7, automated retail ice and water destinations offering bagged or straight-to-cooler ice that is purified, clean and made on demand. Depending on the IceBorn model, the initial investment ranges from $22,995 to $130,000 plus fees for site preparation, shipping and installation.
“IceBorn is thrilled to be included on Entrepreneur Magazine’s first ever Top Franchise Brand ranking. To be included with the likes of top brands in the country is an honor beyond comprehension and proves IceBorn’s continued growth strategy is on target,” says Michael Little, Vice President of Marketing, Ice House America.
"This list captures the essence of what makes a strong brand: It's that perfect balance between consistency and constant evolution," says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur. "The brands we highlight know exactly what they are, but they also embrace change."
