Don't take our word for it. The critics have said it all for us...

“After more than 20 years in the frozen ice cream treats business, I was ready to create a business that was a perfect blend of both opportunity and lifestyle.”


HipPOPs founder Anthony Fellows has owned, managed and operated food service businesses for more than two decades, including experience with frozen desserts dating back to 1990. In addition to an impressive resume of experience, Fellows’ inspiration for HipPOPs came from his father, who says “If you get up every day and do what you love, it’s not work.”
