In 1988, Jack Rogers and five sons purchased two small ice machines and freezers from a neighborhood small business. The company had 20 delivery customers in a 13 mile radius of New Haven, KY. Originally called Rogers Ice Company, the company expanded to a 2,400 sq. ft. facility in New Haven. The two ice machines were replaced by a ten-ton volt ice-making unit.
Brothers Ronnie and Gary bought out the rest of the family in 1995. They continued to run the family business until 2000. In 2000, Ronnie and his wife Karen purchased his brother's ownership in the business and became the sole owners.
In 2002, the company acquired Bluegrass Ice Company.
After five years of running two plants, Ronnie and Karen combined the two businesses and now operate under the name of Bluegrass Ice Company in Elizabethtown, KY. In 2008, a 24,000 sq. ft. facility was built to house the 15,000 sq. ft. storage freezer and 100 ton of ice production per day.
Today, Bluegrass Ice Company has over 600 customers and travels a 100 mile radius. They offer same day delivery services to Louisville, Hardin County, Bowling Green, Owensboro, Lexington and all of Central Kentucky. They still offer friendly, dependable ice services and delivery options.
