If you’ve ever been to Atlanta, chances are you’ve seen a rainbow umbrella pitched over a freezer cart, a colorful chalkboard sign, and a cheerful attendant ready to sell you a popsicle. If you happened to stop and smartly decide to make a purchase, you most certainly became a fan of King of Pops.
King of Pops was started by 2 brothers, Steven and Nick. While visiting their other brother in Central America, they fell in love with the hand-crafted fruit pops there and began discussing creating a pop business back home, never thinking it was more than a silly pipe dream.
Except fate had other ideas, and when Steven was laid off from his corporate gig a little later, they decided to make that pipe dream a reality.Seven years later, King of Pops now operates in 8 cities, has opened 2 bars, bought a farm to grow their own produce, and expanded their offerings to include pops for dogs and even Christmas tree delivery! Clearly they love tackling that next big idea. But sometimes logistics can get in the way of execution.
