Open a Location! Popcorn Heaven® was established in 2014 in Iowa, and has grown with locations in North Carolina, Illinois, Maryland, and coming soon to California. Popcorn Heaven offers licensing opportunities to owners to allow for more flexibility and customization. We are dedicated to growing our presence throughout the nation and increasing our brand recognition.
Become a Part of the Industry’s Continued Growth! Popcorn is a familiar gluten-free, non-GMO, whole grain food that is high in fiber and loved by millions every day. Popcorn’s popularity comes from the fact that it is one of the oldest and well-loved snacks consumed across the globe in a variety of settings from movie theatres, fairs, stadiums, corporate events, social gatherings, and at home! In fact, over 1 billion pounds of popcorn have been sold each year for the last 5 years and is expected to grow! The rise in consumption of ready-to-eat popcorn is the key factor that drives the market growth — and with our fresh, delicious, and convenient ready-to-serve flavors, we are positioned to join in the industry’s growth!
