Come hear the 'King of Pops' story at Aug. 29 SBOTY Awards

King of Pops can be found all across the Southeast with their famous pushcarts and rainbow umbrellas, in “poptails” at bars and restaurants, in stadiums and local universities, and in freezers at stores in local neighborhoods. And if you want to be inspired by a fascinating tale of entrepreneurial success, come hear the King of Pops story firsthand at our 2018 Small Business of the Year Awards on August 29!

King of Pops started with a single pushcart on an Atlanta street corner. Today, the company’s pushcarts and iconic rainbow umbrellas are recognized all across the South for their tasty ice pops made with quality ingredients and unique flavor combinations.
