In 1992, Charlotte Bonogofsky founded Icy Mountain Water Co. in the basement of her duplex. Originally aiming to open a health product store, Charlotte started with a small distiller that produced one gallon of pure water every eight hours. Initially, she gave away the water along with the herbs and vitamins she sold. However, the growing demand led to the purchase of larger distillers and the sale of 5-gallon bottles of water. As demand increased, her duplex was soon filled with health products and bottled water, necessitating a move to a new location.

The Store

Her first storefront was a modest 300 square feet, with cheap rent but no heating, making winters challenging. After just one year, she moved to a larger, 650 square-foot store. After two years, an eviction notice from the City forced another move due to new road construction, leading to their current 7,000 square-foot location.
Over the years, Charlotte's family, including her husband Neil, daughters Brandy and Amanda, and grandson Cayson, have joined the business. Charlotte's mother also contributed for a time. Today, a dedicated team of staff members helps deliver the exceptional service customers have come to expect from Icy Mountain Water Co.
