Before taking a closer look at the experience of opening an ice cube factory, let’s find out why many people choose to run an ice cube factory or should they do it?
Why should you open an ice cube factory?
The demand to buy ice cubes is increasing strongly
Vietnam is a tropical country with typical hot and humid weather. Therefore, people use ice all year round, even in cold and hot weather. Moreover, the rapid development of shops, especially tea shops and sidewalk cafes, has led to a stronger demand for ice cubes than ever before. And this is also an opportunity for those who sell ice cubes and ice to seize the opportunity.
The cost of opening an ice cube factory is not large, suitable for even small businesses
The reasonable and moderate cost of opening an ice factory is also the reason why many people choose to do this business.
To open an ice factory, the first thing you need to do is find an ice maker. Then there is the cost for some equipment included in the line and labor and workshop space. In our experience, all costs are only a few hundred million depending on the size of the workshop. This is a relatively reasonable amount of capital and is suitable for both small, medium and large business households.
