OUR GOURMET FLORIDA POPCORN FAMILY

Family puts the “BEST” in Best Popcorn Company Name

Our popcorn market stand started out as a simple family business and as a way for two brothers, John and Kevin, and their sister, Katherine, to learn solid work ethics and responsibility. As an add-on, they also learned about dollars and sense, encouraged by their mother Mrs. Kurgis’ insistence they make change for customers by using their heads, not calculators. Where is Katherine, now? She wholeheartedly supports her brothers in their business endeavors, but is planning her new adventure, going off to college at Denison University in Ohio. Her brain is telling her to be a novelist, not a mathematician.
Mrs. Kurgis can be found helping her sons from behind the scenes, cooking up our gourmet corn. She is also the mastermind behind some of our perennial, customer favorites, such as our Chettle Mix and our Orange Cream with Dark Chocolate drizzles.
Each of our family members supports each other, because that is what puts the “family” in our family business and, ultimately, the “BEST” in our Best Popcorn Company name.

Out and About in Our Community

John, Kevin, and the rest of the family are always excited to meet customers, face-to-face. You can find them working our stand at weekly farmers markets, as well as participating in annual community events from Spooktacular on 5th to Christmas on Third, Naples St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Naples Bridal Expo, and more. It’s always a fun time with the Best Popcorn Company family. See and taste for yourself how our family puts the “BEST” into Best Popcorn Company.

Savor Our Premium, Gourmet Florida Popcorn

Batch-cooked and made fresh for every order, we pop our corn to perfection in the kettle. We only select large and crunchy, yet fluffy corn with minimal kernels for our luxurious caramel corn and Florida kettle corn.
We guarantee each of our popcorn flavors is unique, gourmet, and unforgettable as each must pass our high standard of taste testing. If we don’t love it, it doesn’t make our menu, until the flavor is spot-on.

Going Green

When shipped, our products’ extra packaging space will now be filled with bonus mini bags of our kettle corn or our light pink salted corn! And, because we are just so passionate about sharing new flavors of our gourmet Florida popcorn with you, we are even adding in free ‘Taster Bags’ of corn, fresh from the kettle for you to sample.
We’ll say it once and we’ll say it again, to us at Best Popcorn Company, it’s not just about the popcorn or the taffy, it’s all about the customer. Cheers!
