Self dispensing ice has never been easier.

 Revolutionizing the Ice Industry 

The traditional ice distribution model where ice is produced at one location and then transported to be sold at another location, is extremely inefficient and continues to drive the cost of ice up.  The Ice Depot is revolutionizing the way ice is distributed by completely cutting out the middle man and simply making the ice on site. We have developed a reliable store front vending machine that makes the ice, collects money and dispenses ice, without any empolyees required. We invite you to join the ice revolution!

Ice Vending FAQ’s

These are the questions we get the most. 

How does this work? 

It is a simple business model; you find a location, you choose the correct size machine and you install the unit. Repeat as your business grows.

 How much money can you make vending ice?

Location, location, location. Where you place your machine, will determine how much money you can make. A great benefit is that the machine is moveable! The amount can range from ~$1,000 to $4,000+  per month.

How much does it cost to make a bag of ice?

Typically a bag of ice will cost under 20 cents to make, giving you a profit mark up of nearly 10x.

How much does an ice vending machine cost to operate?

Our machines have the lowest operating costs in the industry, due to our triple insulated design - the machine operates more like a cooler box rather than a refrigerator that pulls unnecessary electricity. 

What do I need to set up my ice machine?

You’ll need access to electric (single phase 220v and 110v) and a drain line (1/2 in). We will provide you with the in depth details of how to set up your machine. 

What’s an ideal location for an ice vending machine?

Any commercial location with high visibility and easy access. Examples include: Camp Grounds, Gas Stations,  Liquor Stores, RV Parks, Bait Shops, etc. Speak with someone on our team to determine where to start.

Ice Vending Machine Success Stories

Can’t say enough good things about The Ice Depot! We purchased our first (of hopefully many) ice vending machine in November and these folks are top notch! They delivered and setup our unit and even spent the night to make sure everything was working property and made sure we knew how to use everything properly. We would never even consider buying from anyone else. They are THE BEST! Thank you all so much!
