About Doc Popcorn

Using 100 percent corn oil, proprietary flavor blends and other high-quality ingredients, Doc Popcorn handcrafts a wide variety of fresh-popped specialty flavors of popcorn. Doc Popcorn's delicious flavors are gluten-free, whole grain, wheat-free and nut-free. Doc Popcorn started franchising in 2009 and has since been recognized as one of the hottest snack franchises in the country. In 2015 and 2016, Entrepreneur Magazine ranked Doc Popcorn among the “Top Food Franchises,” “Top Mobile Franchises,” “Top Franchises Under $50,000,” and placed the company on the upper half of its “Franchise 500,” a highly-regarded list in the franchise industry.

Company History

Inspired by their experience with "mom and pop" kettle corn makers at a Boulder Farmers' Market, co-founders Rob and Renee Israel saw an opportunity to professionalize the way this tasty treat is created and sold. Over the better part of a decade, the couple perfected a unique offering of fresh-popped mouthwatering flavors and developed a variety of fun, simple and flexible business models for use at high-traffic venues such as malls, stadiums, convention centers and entertainment venues of all kinds. After owning and operating 11 units of their own in Colorado, Rob & Renee started franchising in 2009 so they could share their vision of creating smiles all over the world with their great tasting, freshly-popped snack.

We have since grown to a family of nearly 100 POPrietors who are having a blast spreading smiles worldwide. So whether it's a Doc Popcorn PopShop™ at Mall of America, a PopKiosk™ like at the Tokyo Train Station, or a Mobile PopCart™ at a brand name stadium like the Pepsi Center or a local high school girls volleyball tournament, there are a lot of exciting high-traffic venues you can pop into in order to build your own Doc Popcorn business.

"We both felt there was more in life that we wanted to accomplish before transitioning into retirement. For many years, we've contemplated having a business of our own. After doing some research, we were convinced that Doc Popcorn was the best choice. It is fun and easy to operate. And we enjoy running the business with the help of our children and grandchild."
