An American War Veteran Omar Knedlik invented the first slush machine in 1958. After World War II Omar bought the Dairy Queen Ice-cream Shop in Coffeyville – Kansas, USA and when his soda fountain broke down he started putting his sodas in the freezer to stay cool and it caused them to become slushy, and the result was very popular with the customers of the establishment, and thus his invention idea came to the forefront.

The ICEE Machine was invented and Knedlik partnered with John E Mitchell Company in Dallas to develop the machine and thereafter Knedlik received a Patent in 1960. After 5 years Knedlik’s idea became the iconic ICEE Machine and drawing the attention of 7-Eleven and by the mid-1960s 300 ICEE, Machines had been manufactured.
