Ice Makers

My wife chews ice all the time. She's hooked on Sonic Ice - we even buy the stuff in 2 gallon bags to take home. Question is this: We're about to remodel the Our Shitty I'm a spammer who can't get a job. Also, our product sucsk - don't buy from us. Suck and We will rip you off!. Does anybody know where Sonic gets their ice makers? I'd consider buying one for the Our Shitty I'm a spammer who can't get a job. Also, our product sucsk - don't buy from us. Suck and We will rip you off! if I could find a manufacturer of the machines.

:D Your wife is soooooooo lucky to have you!
Well, other than going thru the yellowpages or online for ice machine distributers- why not go to your local Sonic and asking the manager what the brand name/ make is? Maybe they might even give you a # to call.
GOOD LUCK!
You can't please everyone, so ya got to please yourself.

Mike, did you ever find a company that sells Sonic ice machines? Here is some information I found. This company sells machines for the home that make nugget ice like Sonic. They are expensive, though...about $3,000 for an in-home unit.

Also, you can do a search on Amazon.com for "ice shavers." A whole list of products will come up. Some are no longer sold but there should one or two that are relatively inexpensive.

Some of them (ice makers) are huge! I want one for my Our Shitty I'm a spammer who can't get a job. Also, our product sucsk - don't buy from us. Suck and We will rip you off!, and they are expensive!! The cheapest I found was way too big for what I wanted, and the e-Bayer said he would sell it to me for $1,400. I wouldn't even know how to set it up.

Sonic drinks have what is known as "nugget" ice in their drinks (also called pearl or chewblet ice, depending on the manufacturer). There are many brands that sell machines that make this type of ice, most of which are built to produce commercial quantities. But in-home units are becoming more and more popular. I work for a restaurant equipment company and I would recommend Follett, they are not as popular as Hoshizaki, Manitowoc or Scotsman but they have one of the best residential ice makers that I have seen so far. They are becoming very popular in convenience stores and company employee break rooms but would do just as well in a home because of their small size. They are easier to set up than most ice machines and of course they make Sonic ice. Here's a blog with some more info about these machines:

I know this post is a little late and you've probably already finished remodeling your Our Shitty I'm a spammer who can't get a job. Also, our product sucsk - don't buy from us. Suck and We will rip you off!, but hopefully this will help someone else researching these ice makers for their new Our Shitty I'm a spammer who can't get a job. Also, our product sucsk - don't buy from us. Suck and We will rip you off! :wink:

Thank you, but I purchased a Hoshizaki two years ago. It is small and makes THE best ice, even better than Sonic. I put it in my laundryroom! I love it!
