  • Funding Usage

    We struggled last year after the city changed the street in front of our store adding an island where a turning lane was. They also removed a large part of our driveway. Traffic issues took about 40% of our business. In Jan 2020, we moved to a wonderful new location and were just getting rolling good when the pandemic arrived. We need help with covering some expenses for the new location such signs and kitchen upgrades.

  • Business Plan

    We believe our new location is going to make our business boom if we can last out this pandemic bump. We are also about to begin selling fresh made fudge both locally and online. I tried a few different businesses before I started this one and decided to go "all in". Its a fun business and the community loves it. It just makes people happy. We do all we can to give back to the community and we want to do everything we can be successful long-term.

  • Self Identified Competition

    We don't really have any direct competitors locally. There are a couple of other popcorn shops around but none within 22 miles or so. Our biggest candy competitor (Browns Buffet) in Benton just announced they are closing after 47 years. I love my business. It is my baby and I love making my customers happy. We were doing extremely well before our traffic issues came up (just as we were becoming profitable) and we know we can do great again. It is a family business and we all work together to make it a great place to shop.
