ALTHOUGH THE PACKAGED ICE INDUSTRY IS FULL OF DIVERSITY AND STRONG OPINIONS THAT ARE NOT ALWAYS AGREED UPON, there is a common reality that is true for all within the industry. That common reality is the seasonality of this industry. This common thread of seasonality affects all businesses within The Packaged Ice Industry.
The packaged ice industry is relatively small. I’ve had a number of friends in the past who have asked my profession. When I explained that I was involved with industrial ice makers and the packaged ice industry, their response seemed to be “and what else do you do?” Ice certainly has a presence in everyone’s lives, but the majority of it isn’t.
