Frios Gourmet Pops Builds Leadership Team with Addition of Two New Roles
Frios Gourmet Pops Adds Two New Trailblazers to its Leadership Team
June 16, 2022 // Franchising.com // MOBILE, Ala. - Frios Gourmet Pops as announced two new additions to its first-class team.
The company has appointed Olivia Dandapa to the role of Director of Pops and Adam Herndon to the role of Director of Franchise Operations. The growth of the brand’s franchise team means added support for Frios franchisees, affectionately known as Happiness Hustlers, with improved oversight on operations, product innovation and sales.
"Both Olivia and Adam have already made an impact to our team in just a short amount of time,” said Patti Rother, President of Frios Gourmet Pops. “They truly embody the fun, smart, hustle attitude that we look for in Frios team members. I’m confident that the experience and demeanor that both Olivia and Adam bring to the table will be tremendous for the future growth and success of our brand.”
As the Director of Pops, Dandapa brings with her more than six years of leadership experience in the popsicle industry, having served in many roles overseeing training, quality assurance, flavor innovation, sourcing and procuring. A native of Huntsville, Alabama, Dandapa is described as “quiet, but fierce” by her fellow Frios teammates.
Herndon is no stranger to the franchise world and brings expertise to his new position as Director of Operations. As a previous franchise consultant-turned-franchisee with Jimmy Johns, Herndon was a key player in driving sales and strengthening the company’s bottom line. He most recently served as Director of Operations for Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, where he played an integral role in new store openings and the development of team members. Despite his impressive experience, there is much more to Herndon that shows his extraordinary take on life. He once completed the MR340 in 60 hours and 1 minute, sleeping only 3 hours in a $400 canoe.
“At Frios, we look for individuals who think outside the box and blaze their own trails, and that’s exactly what we saw when we brought Adam and Olivia on board,” said Cliff Kennedy, CEO of Frios Gourmet Pops. “As we enter a pivotal point for Frios franchising, Olivia and Adam will be impactful to the continued success of our brand.”
Frios elicits magical moments of pause, nostalgia, and reminders of what brings people happiness. The dessert on a stick harnesses the ability to spark an instance where individuals can stop and relish in their moment of joy, no matter the environment. Offered in a wide variety of flavors, Frios are made with quality ingredients and real fruit, empowering customers of all tastes to enjoy a Frios and reminisce in the carefree days of childhood.
