Frios is a simple, flexible, fun franchise to do full-time or as a side hustle. We are your modern-day ice cream truck. You sell a pre-packaged, gourmet popsicle out of our tie-dye vans, also known as the Sweet Ride.

As a Frios franchisee, you will have so much flexibility due to our mobile concept. You choose which events you work, and which you don't. With three main revenue streams you can also create real wealth for you and your family. Speaking of family, most of our current franchisees love Frios because it allows them to spend more time with their kids. Some franchisees even bring their kids to events and let them work in the van with them! Frios is all about family so we love seeing these mini-entrepreneurs in our Sweet Rides handing out Happiness on a stick.

Frios is also labor light with and average of just 2 employees. You can run the business yourself when you're first beginning and then hire full-time or part-time help in the busy season or once you're booking multiple events in a day.

Frios also offers a fixed royalty fee meaning you pay the same every month even as sales increase. With prime territories still available and the option for multi-unit, Frios is a simple, flexible and fun business for you to explore!
