Zippy Ice - A Local, Woman Owned Business.

Text or Call 980.355.9851 to order Ice

Zippy Ice was started as the first woman owned Ice company in North Carolina in 2007 by Christine and Howard Mackie. Zippy Ice placed the first Twice the Ice Machine in Charlotte followed by 5 other ice vending machines. After being approached by numerous convenience stores about providing wholesale ice, we saw the need to add a plant and after realizing the value of food safety, shut down the non-inspected ice vending machines. We currently service thousands of convenience store locations, numerous restaurants, grocery stores, and think outside of the box to accommodate your event.


In 2016 Zippy Ice purchased Home Ice Company in Rock Hill, SC and in 2019 purchased Hobbs Ice. In the short term we operate 2 modern ice plants but are consolidating all operations to manufacture ice in one location at 5701 North Graham Street in Charlotte this fall!
