National Manufacturing Day

CEO Cliff Kennedy Frios Gourmet Pops

“National Manufacturing Day occurs on the first Friday in October and celebrates those who proudly stand behind the goods and services in America. In the United States, we continue to develop products and unlock new technologies growing our economy. Manufacturing businesses create jobs through entrepreneurship, and their competitiveness revitalizes American manufacturing.” –

It was a joy to read the description of National Manufacturing Day. This same description can equally be used to describe the nature of Frios Gourmet Pops. 


Frios started because one entrepreneur was tired of working the corporate life and wanted to start selling his own homemade popsicles. The first Frios popsicle was made in a garage in Gadsden, Alabama. Since then, it has blossomed into a major popsicle franchise that has encompassed the majority of the southeastern US creating jobs of all kinds. Fellow entrepreneurs are able to start their own business with Frios and our highly experienced manufacturing team keeps them going behind the scenes.

This has enabled us to keep our business fresh and to continue to recruit motivated entrepreneurs. Our competitiveness can also be seen in our manufacturing processes. We are constantly researching and developing new flavors and textures based on industry trends and data. Our growing catalog of flavors is sure to have something exciting for any popsicle connoisseur.
