Kona Ice announced today that it has been ranked in Entrepreneur's "Top Franchises for Less Than 150,000" list. Notably, the brand was rated number 13 on the prestigious list of strategic franchise investments.

Entrepreneur's franchise industry analysts compile the list based on scores received on the Franchise 500 evaluation, which analyzes more than 150 data points in the categories of costs and fees, size and growth, franchisee support, brand strength and financial strength and stability. Kona Ice's ranking on the list is a testament to its strength as a franchise opportunity and position as a leading investment in its price segment.

"Being named to this esteemed list is a proud moment for us," said Tony Lamb, founder and CEO of Kona Ice. "We're proud to be ranked as a leading low-cost franchise investment." "Just last year we added 175 trucks, now operating close to 1,100 since our launch in June 2007."  Our hard work to make our franchise opportunity appealing and rewarding to franchisees continues to pay off."

Bringing tropical tunes and cups of shaved ice everywhere it stops, Kona Ice offers its distinctive blend of entertainment and gourmet frozen treats across 47 states. Equally as appealing as the icy treats that the brand offers is its philanthropic commitment in the communities it serves. Nationwide, Kona Ice has donated more than $62 million to community-based organizations since the launch in June 2007.

Providing entrepreneurs interested in investing in the franchise a full suite of support services ranging from initial and ongoing training to sales and marketing programs, the Kona Ice investment ranges in price from $117,650 - $135,925. An initial franchisee fee of $20,000 is required, and finance programs are in place to support qualified entrepreneurs in their Kona Ice investment.
