Your reliable partner for Frozen Beverage success


Frozen Carbonated Beverages all began in a small, Kansas convenience store in the 1950s

Lacking a soda fountain on a hot summer day, a convenience store owner began storing bottles of soda in his freezer to serve them as cold as possible to his thirsty customers.

His customers fell in love with the slushy consistency of the semi-frozen, bottled soda. As the popularity of the slushy drink grew, he began building a machine that could serve them even faster.

The first frozen beverage dispenser machines began shipping by the mid-1960s.

For 30 years, frozen beverage dispenser technology remained relatively unchanged.


Innovative technology transforms the Frozen Carbonated Beverage industry

In the mid-1990s, seeing a lack of consistent, reliable frozen beverage dispensers on the market, Jim Frank developed a breakthrough innovation that became FBD’s proprietary frozen beverage dispenser technology.

While the old machines required frequent service, FBD’s innovative equipment combined multiple, new technologies to drastically reduce service while increasing capacity and durability.

With Jim in the role of President, Jim & Nita Frank founded FBD Partnership in 1994.

By providing customers with responsive 24/7 support, high profitability, and low operating costs, FBD continued to expand throughout the 1990s and 2000s, quickly becoming the #1 leader in the industry.
