Boise Cold Storage warehouse facility.

  • Warehouse
    We have over 50,000 square feet of refrigerated and freezer storage. We offer several storage options from rooms as small as 500 sq. ft for small business customers up to a large racked room of roughly 11,000 sq ft and everything in between.
    We rent storage rooms to customers who handle their own product as well as full large inventory customers where we handle all products including picking orders and conducting monthly physical inventories on all products.
    We also have a fleet of CDL drivers and refrigerated trucks for local product transportation.
  • Ice Production
    For years the company supplied not only refrigerated storage, but also ice to merchants and the railroad alike. In 1903, ice was cut from the Boise River and local ponds, stored in the cold storage facilities, and then sold to the railroads and merchants. Then came the early ice production using a salt-brine process to make 300-pound blocks of ice, which were then cut up and used in block form or crushed. This process was used into the late 1950’s.
    One of the keys to this premium ice is the pure water drawn from an artesian well located hundreds of feet below the current plant. The result is a pure, tasteless, colorless, clear, ice that has become the absolute favorite of many in the valley.
    For nostalgia buffs, refer to the Idaho Statesman contained an ad placed on June 30, 1932, which featured this pure ice “made from deep artesian well” water and noted a two digit telephone number used at that time. Also the historical pictures show the plant in its early days, the loading dock, and the railroad tracks near the plant.
    Today we have three over efficient ice-making machines to produce our ice; we are capable of producing 200 tons per day. We have a packaging line as well as a fleet of drivers who then distribute our crushed and block ice to commercial grocery retailers, convenience stores, manufacturing plants, restaurants and special events all over the Treasure Valley.
  • Special Event Services
    Boise Cold Storage has been part of local festivals and events since we opened. We currently supply ice and offer delivery staff the larger events for concessionaires in the Treasure Valley.
    We love being part of this community, having local roots and seeing our neighbors and business celebrate their milestones each year.
