Island Ice

Shave Ice in Reno

Our Story


Mobile Food Truck & rentals

Island Ice was started in 2001 by Jerry and Linda Taylor after having lived in Lanai, Hawaii for a year.  It was there the idea for Island Ice began to not be just another snow cone guy but deliver a gourmet treat and experience.  With their family they were able to grow the business to two trailers and an Easy-Up setup.

Then in 2015 as they neared retirement, as friends, neighbors, and customers, we were able to purchase the Island Ice business to continue the legacy here in Reno, NV.  Jerry and Linda were able to retire and move back to Hawaii to live with there son and grandchildren and to live their Hawaiian dreams. We downsized a little to be able to manage this new adventure for our family, opting to only purchase one of the trailers.  However, we have enjoyed passing along that same Aloha Spirit to others in the community! 

In addition to our investment into the Mobile Food Truck Scene we also had the opportunity to purchase a Soft Serve Ice Cream Machine Rental Business from another friend, Chuck Meridith, retiring from C&P Distributing of Sparks, NV.  Check out our Rentals 

Recently, we moved back to be with our family in Utah.  We have sold our trailer to Ray (775) 223-4375.  Our rental business is being operated by Denise and Bobby with  Poi Boy Catering.  Contact information on our website
