Learn more about B&B Ice & Water, and what sets us apart.

Welcome to B & B Ice and Water, Inc.! We are the largest ReddyIce® distributor in the nation with a presence in Texas, Louisiana, Georgia, and Florida. B&B specializes in offering our industrial clients cost-effective solutions to the challenges of keeping their workforce safe in the extreme Gulf Coast heat. More and more, LNG Terminals, Oil Refineries, Chemical Plants, Concrete Companies, and Pipeline Companies are finding that B&B Ice and Water is “the clear choice!” Our retail division specializes in servicing supermarkets, convenience stores, clubs, mass merchandisers, drug stores, restaurants, and special entertainment events.

B&B was established on September 13, 1969 by Paul Benton Sr. in Port Arthur, Texas. In 1986, Paul Benton Jr. expended the business by opening another distributor in Tampa, Florida, which has since grown to include all Central Florida, and multiple locations in Georgia. During the 90’s and 2000’s, B&B further expanded its capacity to service the petrochemical industry throughout Southeast Texas & Southwest Louisiana under the leadership of 3rd generation owner Roman Benton. Today, B&B is still an independent, family-owned ice and water distributor, and has enjoyed success by maintaining its’ core values of trust, honesty, integrity, and work ethic.

Quality and safety are our top priorities; therefore, we use rigid sanitation standards, and operation procedures. We offer multiple delivery and product choices, a strong service network, and an experienced crisis response team. These solid capabilities ensure consistent supply and reliable service.
