In case you missed it, Frios Gourmet Pops was voted the #20 frozen dessert franchise company in the country by Entrepreneur Magazine! Check out the article here. From not being recognized at all to immediately making the list is a major accomplishment for us as we are just a bunch of determined entrepreneurs ourselves trying to share the happiness of Frios with every person we can. Entrepreneur Magazine creates the list based on the scores each company received from its Franchise 500 formula, which evaluates more than 150 data points in the areas of costs and fees, size and growth, franchisee support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability.
It is humbling and exciting at the same time to be even mentioned in the same group as some of the other members in the frozen dessert category. Ben & Jerry’s, Kona Ice, Dairy Queen, Baskin-Robbins, and Culver’s round out the top 5 of the list, and what better goal to have as entrepreneurs than to be better than this star-studded top 5. It will take more determination and a whole lot more pops to reach the top spot, but at the end of the day, that is the finish line to us.
