More than 150 people were in attendance at this year’s Kountze Chamber of Commerce Banquet, and after many nominations from the community and from members of the chamber, Read Ice was selected to be this year’s Business of the Year award winner.

According to what was written in the pamphlet, Read Ice is a wholesale ice company that was established in 1988 by Mr. Bull Read and has done much for the community. It is now operated by Jeremy Kunk, Read’s son-in-law, who purchased it in 2009 from Read. Kunk had worked for Read while in high school and a little bit while he was in college.
