Southland Ice is Formed
Reddy Ice shares its roots with the 7-Eleven convenience store chain, a business that grew out of the Southland Ice Company. Southland Ice was founded in 1927 and originally included just eight ice plants and 21 retail docks, also currently known as convenience stores.
Ice Demands Surge
Demand for ice and other chilled products surged after America’s entry into World War II in late 1941, and Southland Ice expanded its operations by acquiring Oak Farms Diaries and City Ice Delivery Ltd, allowing them to expand their business in ice manufacturing and retail stores
Reddy Ice is Formed
Southland Ice goes public on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in 1972. As they continued to acquire various convenience companies and establish 7-Eleven stores nationwide, their packaged ice business was rebranded as Reddy Ice Division, the largest ice operation in the world at that time.
