What started out as a small business in 1923 has turned into a raging success. Owner, Evan Singer, is proud to call Detroit Popcorn his own. Detroit Popcorn is proving to be one of the most successful concession equipment, supplies, and fun food dealers in Michigan.
In 2005 Detroit Popcorn had only 15 pieces of rental equipment. Now the company has almost 300 pieces and can service up to 200+ parties on a weekend in the summertime.
How has Detroit Popcorn turned into a success? Singer lives by one core philosophy-everyone is a customer. “Whether it’s the biggest stadium in town, or a family coming to buy $2.00 popcorn, I want to serve them,” says Singer.
Detroit Popcorn serves arenas, ballparks, gas stations, markets, car dealers, golf courses, and casinos in metro Detroit. “In metro Detroit, people know who Detroit Popcorn is now and all its positive things,” Singer says. “If they see our store or trucks they remember.”
Detroit Popcorn has four trucks, a 20,000 sq. ft retail store, and an additional 18,000 sq. ft warehouse. But they do not want to stop there. Singer says there is talk about possibly getting into franchising and or opening other locations.
Detroit Popcorn is leaving its mark in the concession business. “We took a business with a bad reputation with customers and suppliers and turned it into an awesome business once again,” Singer says.
He advises new businesses entering this field to keep an open mind and do not just listen to one person’s business plan. “Every market is slightly different, and what works for me may not work for you and vice versa,” he says.
The Detroit Popcorn team is proud to offer Gold Medal equipment and supplies. They claim that there is no other in the industry that is more a “one-stop shop” and our equipment is in its own league. “Gold Medal has always been willing to help us in any way they can from day one,” Singer states. “They stand behind their dealers and that is what you need in today’s changing market.”
In the Detroit market, you can trust and count on Detroit Popcorn for all your concession needs.
