3yr old, custom, online Artisan Popcorn Company
100% All-Natural, Custom Recipe Artisan Popcorn "eBusiness" - PLUS
This is a custom-recipe, custom-engineered, custom-designed, custom-photographed, process-streamlined, Artisan Popcorn business with proven online retail, specialty gifting and fundraising sales components.
We craft a premium, decadent, all-natural & organic (and GMO-free) popcorn line presented in a sexy, 100% recycled and "gift-worthy" packaging for consumers who care about quality.
Born online in New England, (Launched in 2012) this Artisanal Food online store was built by a small group of marketing pros as a fun way to test our eCommerce & marketing management systems functionality.
As specialty food lovers ourselves, our studio's kitchen time was serious business. Popcorn was our snack of choice. Over the years we tried pretty much every "gourmet" popcorn the online market had to offer. What we found was that 97% of the major online popcorn shops and gift basket companies were using pre-made, artificial seasonings, powdered caramel mixes, confectioners coatings, and a lot of unnecessary preservatives.. VERY few companies strive to use 100% all-natural & GMO free ingredients. Just trying to find the ingredients listed on any of those so called "gourmet" popcorn websites is work! Rule #1 - Quality matters to customers.
We marketed our brand nationally, regionally and locally to gifters and snackers alike who just fall in love with our flavors.. WaLa! - that's where our little experiment, turned into a pretty decent business.
We showcased our Brand at fair$, farmers market$ and event$ of all kinds - spreading the brand and the WOW factor through tastings. We've been a Whole Foods supplier, a private labeler, fundraiser, favor supplier & more. Schools partner with us to run highly profitable and popular fundraisers. Private institutions and businesses pamper their patrons with our customized event favors. Specialty food shops and cafe's showcase our market bags for quick sales.
We engineered this business to be run by a single owner-operator or expanded to the national franchise level with minimal hardware investment only.
Our advanced and flexible eCommerce system is fully supported and is on a private environment. The same system also runs other national, high-volume ecommerce businesses in our region, and has for years.
Over the years, we've limited our lineups, improved our process, upgraded our packaging (now 100% Recycled and Recyclable), and developed a plethora of custom recipes that fit every holiday and seasonal celebration there is. We've tweaked and retooled the web systems to make the storefront system, databases and website easer to manage by a single owner-operator.
Today, our elegantly-presented popcorn is made fresh-to-order and shipped fast anywhere in the USA.
** It is important to understand that this is a true "hobby" business for me.
AT 3 years old, its just a baby business.. but it comes with all the tools and extensive marketing pieces you'll need to be a big business. I've worked out all the bugs and I'm ready to pass the torch to a food entrepreneur who has the passion(and time) to take this very special project to the next level.
Like any hobby, I've tweaked and retooled the system and process over the years to make the storefront system, databases and website easier to manage. I've done all the design& photography myself. I've also streamlined the popcorn production process so that a single person can produce 100+ bags/boxes per day. I typically spent no more than 8 hours a week in the kitchen (with the exception of fair/fundraising prep which requires more time).
Today, my marketing business is taking more and more of my time. I'm looking to sell ASAP and get the next person set up in time for the holiday rush! Lets talk.
