King of Pops - Pop Hawker for SunTrust Park
We are currently hiring part-time Hawkers for the duration of our busy season (August-October)
Be the face of King of Pops in SunTrust Park, home of the Atlanta Braves! Engage with customers while selling our all natural, handcrafted pops.
About King of Pops
What started as a single pop pushcart on a street corner in Atlanta has developed into a regional retail, catering and wholesale business selling millions of pops each year.
Our retail business ranges from a street corner to partnerships with stadiums and venues like SunTrust Stadium (home of the Atlanta Braves).
Our catering business ranges from office parties & weddings to activations with companies like MailChimp and Delta.
Our wholesale business reaches 500+ accounts from mom & pops to Whole Foods and some of the largest food service companies in the world.
We travel the east coast camping & sell at some of the country’s largest music festivals.
Beyond the pops, we have continued to push ourselves.
We started a distribution company called Perfect 10 that delivers like-minded, amazing products throughout the South.
We started a Christmas tree delivery business called Tree Elves to offset our seasonality and minimize turnover.
We opened a bar a few years ago at Ponce City Market, that pairs pops with cocktails (Poptails), and have more locations set to open in the next two years.
We started our own farm, King of Crops, to demonstrate our commitment to environmental sustainability and teach our community about local farming.
Our commitment to composting led to a relationship with Compost Now, and this year we partnered up to start King of Compost, which lives at our farm and will soon take in hundreds of tons of food waste a year and turn it into extremely high-quality soil for our local farms.
We host hundreds of community events a year, with the goal of furthering our purpose of creating Unexpected Moments of Happiness. Our most popular is a yoga event in each of our cities that attracts hundreds and sometimes thousands of people to get outside and enjoy each other.
