Cincy Chic: Tell us about streetpops!
Sara Bornick, Owner of streetpops: Streetpops are all-natural gourmet popsicles handmade right here in Cincinnati with fresh ingredients and unusual flavor combinations.
Cincy Chic: What’s the inspiration behind the business?
Bornick: The inspiration behind streetpops was a love for food, drinks, and different/unusual things. I wanted to initially open an ice cream shop, but Cincinnati already has so many amazing ice cream options and is oversaturated. I wanted to bring something new and different to the Cincinnati scene while also updating a nostalgic childhood favorite.
Cincy Chic: When did you launch streetpops?
Bornick: We opened in May 2011!
Cincy Chic: Where can readers find streetpops?
Bornick: We have 3 storefront locations: 1437 Main Street in OTR, 3096 Madison Road in Oakley and our headquarters at 4720 Vine Street in St. Bernard, which opens May 7. We also have an ice cream truck and multiple pushcarts that we take to different events and also use for catering.
Cincy Chic: What can we find on the menu?
Bornick: Anything from our most popular flavors like chocolate sea salt and raspberry lemonade to our unusual flavors like pineapple habanero and avocado. With our flavors rotating every couple weeks there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Cincy Chic: What makes streetpops unique?
Bornick: Our flavors are unique, as is the way we deliver them. Our brand is fresh, modern and fun.
Cincy Chic: Is there anything new on the horizon for your popsicle business?
Bornick: We have a new offering in our shops this year: you can dip your pop in an all-natural Dark Belgian Chocolate Shell and also indulge in sprinkles, peanuts or coconuts as an extra topping. Our production kitchen is also new this year in St. Bernard. Our new 2,500 square foot space has allowed us to expand our production capabilities.
