"Simple Business Model"
Steve D.
Dual Franchise Owner, Dippin’ Dots and Doc Popcorn, Connecticut

“After 20 years in the postal service, I wanted a career change where I could run my own business. For me, it really was love at first bite - as soon as I tried the Doc Popcorn product, I wanted to share it with my entire community. It came full circle for me when I opened a Doc Popcorn kiosk in the amusement park I grew up visiting.  When I was offered an opportunity to also sell Dippin’ Dots, I was excited to provide both products and give mall-goers the ultimate snack destination.”
