August 05, 2016 // Franchising.com // HARRISBURG, Ill. – The wait is over in Harrisburg. Local residents, commuters and Harrisburg’s workforce can finally quench their thirst with great-tasting water and ice from Watermill Express at a fraction of the price they would pay at the store.
The pure drinking water and ice company has opened a station at 710 Commercial Drive and celebrated the new location with a memorable giveaway event. On July 27, 2016, Watermill Express gave away free one-gallon pure drinking water samples, free ice and free Watermill Express water bottles while supplies lasted. Additionally, Harrisburg mayor Dale Fowler and the Saline County Chamber of Commerce inaugurated the opening, congratulating Watermill Express Harrisburg owner/franchisee Dr. Pradeep Reddy for bringing the brand to the region.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled about bringing Watermill Express and its pure drinking water to Harrisburg,” said Reddy, who is a local pediatrician. “By opening a Watermill Express, I am eager to raise awareness about better drinking water options for the surrounding community.”
In addition to dispensing pure drinking water through a patented self-cleaning dispenser, the new station features Waterocks® Ice, which is made from Watermill Express’ pure drinking water.
“Our advanced water purification technology inside each station is computer monitored and produces high quality pure drinking water and crystal-clear ice 24 hours a day,” said Lani Dolifka, CEO of Watermill Express. “Dr. Reddy is an outstanding member of the community and we couldn’t be more pleased with his commitment to open future Watermill Express locations bringing safe, affordable drinking water and ice to the area.”
As part of the company’s longstanding promotion of using refillable bottles in the United States, Watermill Express has saved more than 500,000,000 single-use one-gallon water bottles from U.S. landfills. That impact will continue to expand as Watermill Express grows its presence in Southern Illinois.
Plus, beyond the Harrisburg area, but equally as important, more than a thousand Watermill Express locations nationwide work closely with World Vision, a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. World Vision is the largest non-governmental provider of clean water in the developing world – reaching one new person with clean water every 30 seconds.
Every time someone buys a gallon of water at a participating Watermill Express station, a gallon of clean water will be donated to a person in need in the developing world via World Vision.
Across the country, Watermill Express serves thousands of customers a day safe, clean, pure drinking water and ice. Customers supply their own clean containers and drive up to the Watermill Express station to purchase great-tasting water and ice at a fraction of the price they would pay at the store.
Watermill Express is the largest drive-up pure drinking water and ice company in the nation and the green alternative to prepackaged water. Watermill Express customers reuse their own clean containers to reduce pollution from single-use plastic water bottles. The brand’s Waterocks® Ice is now available at select locations.
