What entrepreneur doesn’t love a good list? So we’ve compiled a list of reasons why Kona Ice is different from everyone else.
#1 – Proprietary Nutritional Products
Through Kreations Flavoring, we provide a product that meets all the federal nutritional standards for schools. Our Fruit First product has fruit as the first ingredient, is fortified with vitamins C and D, and sweetened with pure cane sugar and all natural stevia leaf extract.
#2 – Extra Equipment
You can customize your business model with the four additional pieces of equipment we offer. We’re not just a food truck. We have the Kona Kiosk, the Kona Mini, the Kona Trailer and now, the brand new KEV 2.0.
#3 – Patented Flavorwave
Our patented Flavorwave is what makes the Kona experience, the Kona experience. Our unique self-serve system is a staple of making your own Kona. Our customers love it and you will too!
#4 – Unmatched Corporate Support
How do you stay #1 in Franchisee Satisfaction? We work aggressively to exceed our franchisee’s expectations. We want to meet their needs and then some. With a corporate staff of over 30 people, this is our aim each and every day.
#5 – Established Brand
With 8 years in the industry and representation all across the country, and even internationally, Kona Ice is a well-developed and respected brand. We have over a thousand touch points across the country.
#6 – Extremely Quick Startup
We’ll have you up and running in 30-60 days, guaranteed. We know that when you decide to go into business for yourself, you don’t want to wait years to make that dream a reality.
#7 – Fixed Royalty
With Kona Ice, there are no penalties for succeeding. We believe that a fixed royalty allows you to be as successful as possible. We strive to be efficient with your money and get you the most bang for your buck.
#8 – Incredibly Low Overhead
With approximately 6% food cost in an industry with an average of 32%, you’re already starting off on the right foot. Take out the cost of owning a brick and mortar location and you’re set. This business model is built around our franchisees being able to be profitable quickly.
#9 – Community Involvement
With over $100 million given back to local communities, the areas where our franchisees operate have embraced Kona Ice as the best fundraising tool around to meet their needs.
