Frios Gourmet Pops: Celebrating 100 Locations and Empowering Entrepreneurs


Since its inception, Frios Gourmet Pops has been on a mission to bring smiles and sweet moments of nostalgia to communities across the US. With a commitment to quality, fun, and inclusivity, Frios has redefined the gourmet popsicle experience, making it a beloved treat for people of all ages.

We’re thrilled to announce a significant milestone in the Frios Gourmet Pops journey – the opening of our 100th location. This landmark achievement is not just a testament to our brand’s growth but also to the vibrant community of franchisees who have been instrumental in bringing our vision to life across the nation.

From our humble beginnings to becoming a household name in the gourmet popsicle industry, Frios has always been about more than just frozen treats. Our brand is built on a foundation of fun, family, and community engagement, with a commitment to delivering high-quality, nostalgic experiences to people of all ages.

Cliff Kennedy, our CEO, embodies the Frios spirit. His personal story from franchisee to company leader is a powerful reminder of the entrepreneurial opportunities Frios offers. Inspired by the simple pleasure of a key lime pie pop, Kennedy saw the potential for a business that could bring joy and community connection. His subsequent purchase of the company and focus on nurturing a supportive franchise network have been key drivers of our growth.
