TEXAS ICE HOUSE


Cold Storage in Dallas

The building was constructed in 1913 and operated under the name "Texas


Ice House" providing ice for railroad cars which ran adjacent to


the facility and required ice to preclude food spoilage. Due to its


convenient location adjacent to 2 major railroads, Texas Ice House caused


its local ice producing competitors to lose so much revenue that they


joined together to buy the business and subsequently closed the entire


operation.



The property was idle until 1940 when it was purchased by the Hinckley


family. The Hinckleys were approached by local businesses who needed


refrigerated cooler and freezer spaces so they restarted the compressors


and "Hinckley Cold Storage" was born. Hundreds of local food service


businesses got their start in the Hinckley facility including TCBY


Yogurt. Serving North Texas as Hinckley Cold Storage for almost sixty


years, the facility’s original name, Texas Ice House was restored in 1997.



Today, the facility provides one-of-a-kind self-serve refrigerated storage


solutions for a wide variety of small businesses whose tenure in the


building ranges from 90 days to over two decades.
