Our non-frozen attempt to add happiness to your everyday life

Steven Carse

In true founder fashion Steven has never walked into KoP without a new idea and a pat on the back for the crew. His mind never stops moving, producing on average 100 ideas per week, and though most of them are beyond our possibilities, the 1% that make the cut are true gold. Steven loves his community, his KoP family, and he truly couldn’t envision a different life. Steven Carse is one-of-a-kind; he has a really big heart and his employees are proud to have an owner who cares about their well-being as much as he does.
