The Happy Popcorn Co. pops up in new downtown locationOctober 1, 2020
The Happy Popcorn Co. recently made the move to 109 Pitt Street. Having outgrown their First Street location in less than 10 months of operation, Kristin Davey and her team worked closely with their landlord to find the right spot to make their new home. “ We’re very lucky that our decision to move came when it did; Our landlord had another property he was looking to fill, and the folks at Birchwood were ready to take over that space, meaning their spot was opening up. The square footage of 109 Pitt St, allows us to purchase some new equipment which will let us increase our production and finally actualize some of the exciting programs and opportunities for the community we have planned.”
Since they opened their doors 10 months ago, The Happy Popcorn Co. has raised and donated over $6000 to local charities including Beyond 21, Rachel’s Kids, The Boys and Girls Club of Cornwall SD&G and Carefor Hospice and The Cornwall Hospital Foundation. In addition to their fundraising, when COVID first hit the province The Happy Popcorn Co, donated over 250 bags of popcorn to the Cornwall Community Police Services, Maison Baldwin House and Environmental Services at Cornwall Community Hospital. “It’s a part of our business mantra; Be Kind. Do Good” says Kristin Davey, “Our business is only as strong as our community, and boy has our community stepped up. We are overwhelmed by the support we have received since we opened 10 months ago.“
The Happy Popcorn Co. is a family-run, sweet tooth lovers’ delight! Located in the heart of downtown Cornwall, Ontario, their popular poppings are full of nose tingling nostalgia. Not just fresh gourmet popcorn though, they also carry artisan sodas, lemonades and iced teas, retro and imported candy and chocolates, fresh cotton candy made in house as well as sugar free snacks and flavoured pork rinds. “We’ve tried really hard to find goodies you just don’t see anywhere else. I’m also a sucker for products with a really great story or mantra such as the line chocolate bars from Peace by Chocolate ” says Kristin. “We know that there is something to satisfy everyone’s palate instore, and we’re constantly searching for new and exciting products to bring in, especially now that we’ve got even more room to display it in”
