Fresh Pops

I started this business with my daughter one summer when I was unemployed and could not afford daycare to work a minimum wage job. It was her idea. We did everything together: selected fruit, blended, froze, packaged, taste tested our products, attended markets, and sold sold sold! We purchased a popsicle cart. We also do festivals, birthday parties, weddings and any other special event. We make simple products with only 2-3 ingredients. Everything is 100% natural blended fruit mixed with honey. The business has grown and I have been able to teach my 10 year old daughter about true entrepreneurship. This includes how to organize and run a small business and how to navigate the hardships, failures and successes. She has learned math through exchanging money, customer service and how to barter. We now have staff working with us. The journey has been incredible.
