ABOUT THIS CONCEPT
HQ: New York
Gelato on a Stick
Our gelato on a stick is a fun concept and is all natural, easy to eat, and customizable to your own individual choice. A treat which is easily replicable, yet freshly made daily on site to provide an eventful, personalized and memorable experience. Popbar offers a timeless product that caters to all demographics. Owning your own Popbar location will give you the opportunity to grow in a successful and continuously expanding brand.
Popbar’s Franchising program offers competitive franchise fee structures and a low investment cost. We are seeking both Multi-Unit Candidates to help us grow in selected markets, and Area Development Candidates (3 or more locations) to develop a region.
