KI810 Legacy Ice Vending Machine

The Original Kooler Ice Machine

KI810 (Legacy Model)

Kooler ice vending machines - ice vending machine business opportunity! -

The KI810 Ice Vending Machine is the original Kooler machine. After watching other manufacturers develop and introduce larger, more complex, and operationally expensive machines, we set out to design a more efficient and owner-friendly version.

Our goal was to offer an ice vending machine that was cost-friendly for soon-to-be business owners with more than adequate production to handle most locations – but one that could do so with a small footprint and low operation costs. The money our owners do not have to spend on setup and operating costs allows them to increase their bottom-line profits. This model is no longer in production; however, we still offer service to existing KI810 machine owners.

Steve Watson in Texas

Steve Watson retired three years ago from a long career in the utilities industry. With time on his hands and some extra savings lying around, he decided that investing in a passive income would both keep him busy while also gaining him a positive return on his investment. Steve’s first machine is doing great and he is looking forward to purchasing his second one soon.

Richard Moore, owner of Moore’s Auto Parts, started in the ice business back in 2009 in Covington, GA. After seeing several large expensive machines in the Covington area, Mr. Moore called Kooler Ice and purchased a KI810. After purchasing his first machine, Richard added 3 more machines over the next 5 years. Today Richard owns two KI810’s and two IM2500’s and is in the process of adding even more to his fleet.
