Welcome to Own A Kona: the information site for franchising with Kona Ice. This website will provide all the details you could possibly need to hopefully leave you so impressed that there’s nothing else to do but join our 1200+ franchises across the United States as they hit the road daily. This is an opportunity to own your own business and make a difference in your community. We want to be the company that can get you where you need to go.

Now, this isn’t just any shaved ice: this is the fluffiest, most delicious shaved ice this side of the islands. We have completely rebranded an old favorite and given it a new twist by bringing this sweet experience directly to the customer.

Take a look around. Spend some time learning about who we are and what we do; there is a lot to see. You’ll find there is much to offer with Kona Ice and how we have gone from the idea of creating a better ice cream truck to one of the fastest growing franchises in the world. We’re not here to sell you on our company; there’s no funny business, it’s just the facts. So go ahead, take a look around! We think you’ll like it here.
