Popcorn Etc was established in Corpus Christi, Texas in the early 80's and has been locally owned and operated since. It's no wonder why so many people come in and share their memories of this gourmet treat they remember from their childhood. I myself have those fond memories, which makes it even more unbelievable that I now own the place!
I became the owner of Popcorn Etc in August of 2007. With the help of family and friends we overhauled the existing location at 4820 Kostoryz Rd; adding a fresh coat of paint, laying new carpet and constructing new counters, counter tops and walls. "Out with the old and in with the new" was sort of the approach we took, but only on the "cosmetic" side. For over 25 years I had been coming to Popcorn Etc and although times had changed and a facelift was well in need, I still wanted to preserve the "mom & pop" type atmosphere. All the recipes in their entirety were passed down to me and although as easy as it seems to make popcorn, it took me a good five to six weeks to perfect each recipe ~ now I can offer you gourmet popcorn that is honestly the best (I think) it's ever been. Come give Popcorn Etc a try and see if it doesn't trigger any childhood memories for you! It's good to know some things never change...THEY ONLY GET BETTER!
