Frios Gourmet Pops has switched ends of Broad Street. Frios, which was at 202 Broad St. since opening in three years ago, has moved in with Doug’s Deli Downtown at 606 Broad St. Matt Robinson opened the franchise in the red-hot 200 block of Broad Street in October 2016 and it later was purchased by Dr. John Cowan, Harbin Clinic neurosurgeon and founder of Cortex Toys. Doug Bowling of Doug’s says “it seems like a good fit for all.” It is the latest tweak at Doug’s, which earlier added breakfast, also offers an incredible selection of cakes (the double chocolate fudge was a huge hit at a recent birthday celebration).
- Frios also has coolers at GMC Value Mart in Coosa, Olive Tree & Vine or Southern Muggs Coffee Shop in downtown Cartersville as well as Merle Norman Boutique in Summerville.
Three Northwest Georgians are among the 2020 Leadership Georgia Class including Rome’s Smoothie King operator J.J. Johnson, basketball legend Sally Echols of Model High and Cartersville’s Charlie Culverhouse. Says Johnson, one of the more active members of the Rome Floyd Chamber, “I’ve heard so many great things, and therefore I’m overjoyed and honored to be chosen to participate. I’m looking forward to the opportunity.”
They are among the 63 statewide community leaders announced Tuesday by the Leadership Georgia Board of Trustees to take part in all the 2020 activities.
