About Shirley's Gourmet Popcorn

Shirley's Gourmet Popcorn Company has taken the nostalgia of hot, fresh movie-theatre popcorn and the old-fashioned idea of providing great customer service and given it a modern twist. The result? A fun and appealing gourmet popcorn franchise opportunity.

As a hometown company with a solid history, great brand recognition, and high regard in our community, we have always used the highest quality corn and popped it daily in small batches so it's as fresh as possible for every customer. We can show you how it's done!

Shirley's Gourmet Popcorn Company is more than a fresh and tasty treat. It can also be the perfect way to say thank-you, convey greetings, or raise money for a worthwhile cause. Discovering the many ways that popcorn can bring happiness to a wide range of customers and even how it can make a positive difference in your local community might just be the most rewarding part of owning your own gourmet popcorn franchise.
