Popbar, the maker of customizable popGelato, popSorbetto, and yogurtPops, founded in New York City in 2010 opened its first location in Texas'growing food hub. Austin foodies are welcoming Popbar downtown in 2nd Street District. An official Grand Opening celebration will be held February 17th to mark the special occasion. Festivities will include complimentary pops to the first 100 customers and prizes like Beats headphones and the chance to win free Popbar for a year!
Dedicated to serving 'the best' in frozen treats, Popbar serves handcrafted gelato, sorbetto, and yogurt in a new way – on a stick. All pops are made in-house daily with all natural ingredients. On the menu, you'll find 40+ rotating flavors ranging from classics (Chocolate, Vanilla) to the more unique (Green Tea, Passion Fruit), and even seasonal ones too (Watermelon, Pumpkin Pie). You can enjoy your pop as-is, or customize to your liking. Premium dippings and toppings include dark, milk, and white chocolate, nuts, sprinkles, waffle cone, caramel corn, and more!
At Popbar, a mouthwatering experience awaits everyone, even those looking for vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, and soy-free options. All popSorbettos are vegan-dairy-gluten-soy-free, and all popGelatos and yogurtPops are gluten-soy free. Other indulgences include Hot Chocolate on a Stick, Frozen Hot Chocolate, the Double Shake (Popbar's take on a milkshake, made with any two pops), and the newest addition to the menu, the popWich, a gelato sandwich on a stick!
All of this decadence can be attributed to Italian roots and a love for supremely delicious treats. Blending authenticity, innovation, and high quality ingredients, Popbar became a recipe for success, and the contemporary concept has been changing the way we enjoy our favorite Italian desserts since - on an international scale.
Popbar currently has 16 stores in the US in states like AZ, CA, FL, NC, NY, and TX, and 12 stores internationally in countries like Canada, Panama, Singapore and Russia, but this is just the beginning. There are currently 6 stores under construction in new territories, and many more to come. Popbar Austin, the first to open in 2018, is located downtown, steps from the capitol building in 2nd Street District - a destination frequented by locals and tourists alike!
So excited to finally be opening!! We can't wait to serve our delicious, all natural gelato pops in Austin! Our unlimited chocolate dippings and sundae-style toppings are next level, we promise! My favorite combo is strawberry double dipped in dark chocolate with hazelnuts and pistachios, says franchisee, Mariam Oshman.
I first found out about Popbar on the Food Network and it's so cool to be here today, opening our doors to this amazing city!
While Popbar is expanding rapidly, the brand maintains a 'mom and pop' feel at all locations with the help of its hand-selected franchisees. Each store prides itself on Popbar's original values - superior quality, in-house production, outstanding service, authenticity, and family-friendly fun. New stores quickly become classic neighborhood spots, and supplies like fruit and milk are purchased locally.
Popbar is a perfect treat for anyone - baby to adult, and for any occasion - dessert date to post-game celebratory treat to midnight snack. With so many flavors and combinations to try, just one visit won't do. You'll definitely want to stop in for a
love at first bite experience, but if you're a foodie, don't forget to snap a picture of your pop first – that is, if you can wait.
