Carlisle Hygienic Ice Co. plant was built in the 1920’s. This company manufactured block ice and rented freezer lockers to individuals. Home refrigerator/freezers eventually diminished the need for ice and freezer space.
Fire heavily damaged the Carlisle Hygienic Cold Storage Company building in 1964. Damage was estimated at more than $100,000.
Wenger’s purchased the business in 1978. We developed our business to include retail meats, catering, a delicatessen, lunch trucks and wholesale packaged ice distribution to convenience stores, beverage distributors and supermarkets.
Remodeling and expansion in 1997-98 produced the present day larger, more attractive store at our present location on East Louther Street.
We purchased the Newport Ice Company
While scaling back the Lunch Truck & Wholesale Ice we added a smokehouse at our Newport location and grew our wild game processing business by adding a whole line of venison and other wild game products. That was our Segway into making our own beef products such as sweet bologna, ring bologna, snack sticks and jerky as well as curing and smoking our own hams and bacon.
