We have a question for you. What determines the success of a franchise? Is it luck? Coincidence? Why was Kona Ice ranked #1 New Franchise in Entrepreneur Magazine or even more importantly, Highest in Franchisee Satisfaction by TWO separate agencies? We think we might know why. Not every idea is franchise-worthy. Not everyone can offer the support. So why are some concepts instantly successful and others just aren't?
Here at Kona Ice, we know why we've succeeded and reached these ranks of the #1 New Franchise (Entrepreneur Magazine 2013), top in Franchisee Satisfaction (Franchise Business Review and Franchise Update), and named one of the fastest growing franchises in the country right behind McDonald's (Entrepreneur Magazine). We don't think it's luck at all. It's the combination of a fresh concept, strong corporate support with a vision, and a desire to make the world a better place. So you may be knee deep in the franchising process with tons of questions, but we have just one for you. Why not join Kona Ice?

What Our Franchisees Are Saying:
We've been awarded top in Franchisee Satisfaction, but don't take it from us, see what our franchisees are actually saying:
"I couldn't believe how fast I was up and running with my Kona business. It felt like just weeks since my initial phone call to when I was driving my Kona Ice truck away from Kona Kollege completely ready to do business!" - Natasha Pharis
"I would have never imagined that I could practically pay off my entire year's royalty in one weekend. It never ceases to amaze me the amount of people that love coming up to the truck - there's always a line. And I never thought I'd be able to do this full time, but after just a year in the business, I was able to make Kona my full time job." - Megan Stevenson
"As far as Kona is concerned, what really drew me in was the low barrier of entry. There wasn't a lot of risk, in my opinion. You know, you're buying a truck. You actually have an asset to work with. And I appreciate that the business is built around the effort you put into it. If you want to put the effort in, you're going to have a growing business, a profitable business." - Garvin Wong
"The Kona Ice truck is a wonderful sales tool. It was a lot easier to sell than I had imagined it would be. I have hardly ever had anyone turn me down when I asked them for their business. The truck basically sells itself!" - Charles Love
"The way Kona operates is how every franchise should operate. It's a truck! So I can work whenever I want to work. I get to wake up every morning and be my own boss. No more 9-5 for me! And best of all, I never have to miss my son's basketball games ever again." - Jon Black
