Growth & expansion opportunities:

A high barrier to entry so competitors are well established. By adding sales and marketing this business is primed to grow. Can easily be expanded into new markets outside of current territory.


Most of the competition is well established in the New Jersey market. Wholesale ice distributors rarely come up for sale so this is your chance to own one.

Reason for selling:

Owner is retiring due to health issues. The business has been successful for 30 years and the current owner would like to see the business transition successfully. He will stay on and train a new owner for the required period of time needed.

Support & Training:

Will train for 2 weeks @ no cost. Specializing in 3-40 pound bags of ice with daily/weekly delivery to all customers. All inspections are up to date and equipment is in good working order. Great opportunity for someone with wholesale and distribution experience. Additionally, if you like route sale businesses this is for you.
