Kyle Jones

Co-Founder/Chief Innovation & Branding Officer of iCRYO

After achieving degrees in Exercise Sports Science and Business Management, Kyle pursued his doctorate in Physical therapy. While working in his first clinic, he stumbled across cryotherapy in 2012. He was one of the first to hear about this revolutionary treatment in the United States. He managed the cryotherapy division of this Physical therapy clinic for roughly three years (2012-2015). In early 2015 he decided to go out on his own to open what we now know as the global recovery and wellness brand iCRYO! At only 24 years old, this young man took a leap of faith and pioneered an untouched industry, opening the first iCRYO location in his hometown of League City, Texas, in October of 2015. Less than a decade later, iCRYO has become the top-growing franchise company in the Cryotherapy, IV Infusion therapy, body sculpting, and wellness industry. Kyle’s mission is to elevate people’s lifestyles with cutting-edge services, affordability of services, convenience, and professional care. His network and knowledge of services were a huge part of where he envisioned iCRYO could go. Now, iCRYO has awarded over 200 franchises to business owners across North America with plans to expand globally within the next decade. Our goal is to expand the health and wellness mindset and help people elevate their community with our turnkey franchise systems.
