Production Leader and Treats ResearcherRime Time Curiously Crafted Pops –
Rime Time Pops started from a single bicycle cart in 2015. It was our goal to develop the best tasting ice pops that utilize local produce and specialty ingredients to make a one-of-a-kind ice pop. Since our start, we’ve expanded to multiple carts and a few seasonally permanent carts around the city of Columbus and outward. We’ve been able to participate in some of the city’s coolest events as well as serve for some of the largest organizations that also call Columbus “home”.
Behind it all though, we believe it’s our mission to help create memories that last forever. Whether that’s having our carts at a splash pad all summer, the biggest food and art festivals in the city, a wedding or birthday or graduation party in the spring, we want to help tie the memory of the moment together. We believe our ice pops are the perfect way to celebrate the everyday moments in a sometimes overwhelming world.

Relationship Focused - Selling pops is just a conversation starter, we’re here to support our community in feeling part of something bigger. We treat each customer with an intention that they will be part of our Rime Time family forever.
Integrity - We do what we say we are going to do, every time. We are proud of the decisions we make and know that the result of all our choices is a whole-hearted product and service that each customer experiences.
Teamwork - Collectively we work and play efficiently and effectively. Working as a team congruently. We each contribute equally to the team and fulfill our roles to the best of our abilities.
Responsibility - We show respect with our presence. We show care in the way we operate, from dressing in a tidy and uniform manner to cleaning with precision and integrity.
