why invest in Frios Gourmet Pops?

Everybody loves a frozen treat that we call a pop (aka popsicles.)  

As Happiness Hustlers, we sell happiness for a living. It’s that simple. 

Enjoying a Frios pop is a moment of pause and sometimes brings on waves of nostalgia. 

Complications from COVID-19 forced people to stay home, and also forced Frios to revolutionize their operating model and go fully mobile. Instead of people coming to find Frios, Frios brought happiness to the people by way of tie-dye Frios Sweet Ride. (Our version of an ice cream truck or a food truck.)   

Mintel’s industry report shows the ice cream and frozen novelties (popsicles) industry overall experienced a 16.3%-dollar sales increase in 2020 as a result of increased at-home eating (and treating) resulting from COVID-19 quarantining, and it was no different for Frios Gourmet Pops franchisees either who experienced two of the franchise’s most profitable years to date. The numbers continue to grow and there’s no looking back. 

This consumer re-engagement, paired with innovation from industry brands, is expected to contribute to steady movement in 2022 and beyond.

shaking up the franchise industry.

Entrepreneur magazine ranked frios to its Top New Franchises of 2022 list, granting the emerging brand a spot at #35. The list highlights the year’s rising-star business opportunities within the franchising industry.

“We are pumped! Our Frios family believes whole-heartedly in our mission to spread happiness, laughter and remind people to slow down and look for the magic each day through the experience of a delicious Frios treat. Receiving this acknowledgment from Entrepreneur is a testament to that mission and how hard our “Happiness Hustlers have worked to share the vision with communities across the country in 2021,” says the brand’s fearless leader and president, Patti Rother. “This is merely the tip of the iceberg – the Frios team has been strategizing on major plans for our brand in 2022 already, and we can’t wait to share all that we accomplish in the year ahead. We are so excited to spread joy, love, and happiness all across the country, while having a really kick-ass fun time.”

The Frios Gourmet Pops franchise has also received a ranking in Entrepreneur’s Top Low-Cost Franchise list as well as taking the number one spot in their category of Misc. Frozen Dessert Franchises.
