Velvet Creme Popcorn
At Velvet Creme Popcorn, the mission is to offer the best possible product at the most affordable price. It was established in 1937 by Howard White and his wife, Dona after he lost his job. With his last paycheck, he purchased oil, salt, and syrup, and the couple began selling popcorn out of their home. Their business was so successful that they opened a brick and mortar location a short time later.
In 1954, Velvet Creme Popcorn became the first company to sell gourmet popcorn in a decorated can, and the tins featured hand-painted designs. Today, the White family’s third and fourth generations run the business, and flavors include buttered, cinnamon, and chili cheese.
