Message from our Founders
My name is Rob Israel, and my wife Renée and I founded Doc Popcorn in 2003. It all started with a visit to a Farmers’ Market where I tasted kettle-cooked popcorn for the first time. I got excited by the idea of handcrafting this "mom and pop" treat in a variety of flavors and making it available everywhere to everyone as a freshly made, local snack.
We started tinkering with adding fresh flavorful ingredients to popcorn in our New York City kitchen. We then made a life decision to move to Boulder, Colorado, the natural food capital of the world, to start the business. Our dream was to raise a family, experience a better quality of life and build a profitable, fun business that mirrored our healthy lifestyle—creating lots of smiles along the way.
"I spent 30 years in the automotive and fleet industry, and I never looked back. After seven years as a Doc Popcorn POPrietor, I never tire of seeing people of all ages get excited over our popcorn. Although my eldest daughter is taking over the management of my store location, I am expanding the business and staying connected to my customers with my new PopTruck so I can still spread happiness and smiles all over my community."
