How did Kona Ice Get Started?

Kona Ice burst onto the scene in the mid-2000s, born from a desire to reinvent the shaved ice experience. The founder, Tony Lamb, envisioned a mobile treat service that was not only about tantalizing tropical flavors but also about creating memorable, community-centric moments.

Lamb correctly identified a gap in the shaved ice market: Lack as consistency in branding and service. More often than not shaved ice vendors didn’t always dress the same, in a professional manner, or provide a consistent level of service.

Lamb changed all that through Kona Ice. This vision materialized in the form of the iconic Kona Ice truck – a vibrant, music-filled vehicle equipped with a unique “Flavorwave” feature, allowing customers to tailor the amount of syrup on their frozen treats.

But Kona Ice’s impact goes beyond just serving refreshing treats. From its inception, the brand has woven community engagement into its fabric. Partnering with schools, local teams, and organizations, Kona Ice has consistently offered engaging fundraising opportunities, making it a beloved presence in communities across the U.S.
