Frios Gourmet Pops, a mobile franchise system that says it’s essentially the modern version of the ice cream man, is opening its first Barboursville location this year, the company announced in a press release.
The location is owned by Jeremy and Maggie Adams. The Adamses said they wanted to introduce the fun and flavorful concept to Barboursville and allow their kids to learn how to run a business.
“Frios provided us the perfect opportunity,” Jeremy Adams said. “We have been eager to start a business that our young kids could be a part of to earn money to put away towards their future college expenses.”
“Frios is fun and brings happiness to people. It’s one of those products you can sit, eat a Frios and talk to people around you. It’s very organic,” Alison Groom, director of franchise development at Frios Gourmet Pops, said in the release. “We’re excited to see the positive impact Frios has on our new franchisees, their families, and their communities.”
Groom said the brand attributes some of its recent success to its simplicity. All products are packaged, sealed, and shipped in bulk with dry ice to franchisees, who simply load them into the vans’ freezers to dispense without ever handling any of the food directly. Because the machinery involved is also limited to an in-van freezer, clean-up is relatively straightforward and also simple, she said.
