The Avalanche Ice Team

Avalanche Ice came from humble beginnings as a division of a local refrigeration company in the early 1970s. The company was originally called Kold Draft of North Florida. Kold Draft operated as a regional distributor of ice machine parts and equipment in addition to leasing ice machines. The company provided ice machine leasing, and servicing to state, local, and national businesses including government offices, restaurants and bars.

Avalanche Ice emerged when Kold Draft chose to focus on its core business of leasing ice machines in 1990. Kold Draft would change its name to Avalanche Ice in 1990, and begin exclusively leasing Hoshizaki manufactured ice machines.

Over the course of Avalanche Ice’s more than 40 year history, the company leased and serviced ice machines to well over 1,000 businesses in the Jacksonville area. During that time, Avalanche Ice distinguished itself as one of the first ice machine leasing companies with exceptionally low startup costs and superior customer service.
