Kona Ice Brings a One-of-a-Kind Experience to Residents in Fort Myers and Naples Florida
Mobile Franchise Expands in Florida, Giving Back to Community Schools and Organizations
May 24, 2022 // Franchising.com // FORT MYERS, Fla. - Bringing tropical tunes and cups of shaved ice everywhere it stops, Kona Ice is expanding Fort Myers and Naples. Introducing its distinctive blend of entertainment, gourmet frozen treats and FUN-draising, the Kona Ice experience is unlike any other in the area. Serving up good vibes in a cool ride, Kona Ice is now cruisin’ through Fort Myers and Naples.
“Over the past several months of running my Kona Ice truck, I have had such an amazing experience serving people across Fort Myers,” said Jason Jenkins, owner of Kona Ice in Fort Myers. “Having the ability to serve even more people and help more businesses with my business is a very exciting step for me.”
Kona Ice’s escape from the ordinary begins as the sounds of tropical calypso music fills the air at each event and group gathering. The fun continues as all in attendance get their overflowing cups of freshly shaved ice and then help themselves to any of the ten tastes on the truck’s Flavorwave™, Kona’s innovative self-service dispensing system that allows for full customization. Guests also have the option to choose from the additional 20-plus flavors and 500 different combinations offered.
“One of my favorite parts of running my truck has to be the ability to give back to organizations across my community,” added Jenkins. “Being able to carry on that commitment to giving back with even more organizations will be such a fulfilling feeling!”
Dedicated to making a difference in local areas, Kona Ice continues to be committed to philanthropy in the communities it serves, raising more than $100 million in total donations nationwide since 2007. Jenkins is continuing the world’s largest food truck franchise’s tradition of donating thousands of dollars each year to local school groups, teams, and community organizations. Jenkins pledges to give back a percentage of the proceeds from each event he hosts.
“Jason shares our commitment to giving back,” said Tony Lamb, founder and president of Florence, Ky.-based Kona Ice. “He has always been very passionate about his community and wants to have a positive influence in the community, whether it’s new text books, sports uniforms or, simply, a smile. We are proud to have him on-board. Together, we are excited to make a difference in the lives of those around us.”
Beyond fundraisers, popular spots for the food truck franchise include stops throughout Fort Myers & Naples at local community events and festivals.
