Why Own A Doc Popcorn Franchise?
From Commodity to a Poppin’ Brand

Over a decade ago, we recognized an opportunity to innovate a unique niche in the multi-billion-dollar popcorn industry.

Like Starbucks did for coffee and McDonalds did for hamburgers, Doc Popcorn has taken one of the world’s most popular commodity products and branded it as a high-quality, “better-for-you” snack experience in high-traffic venues.

The kernel to our success is we empower our franchise owners to handcraft a wide-variety of remarkable tasting fresh-popped specialty flavors of popcorn with a system that is affordable, simple, scalable, efficient and fun.

The Doc Popcorn Story: In a Kernel

Doc Popcorn is a simple and fun business that is popping up everywhere.

Inspired by “mom and pop” kettle corn makers at a farmers’ market, our founders Rob & Renee Israel spent the better part of a decade creating a mouth-watering kettle-cooked flavored popcorn offering and a variety of flexible business models to make it easy and fun to pop fresh at high- traffic venues.

Doc Popcorn is now the largest franchised retailer of fresh-popped popcorn on the planet, and our POPrietors (franchise partners) are having a blast spreading smiles worldwide with our amazing tasting, freshly popped snack.
