The Happy Popcorn Co.MUNCH ON SOME NOSTALGIC POPCORN WITH DELICIOUS FLAVOURINGS

Our flagship store may be located in the heart of downtown Cornwall, Ontario, but our delicious poppings, full of nose tingling nostalgia have popped up across Canada, and now BELLEVILLE!

As sweet as that may be, the cornerstone of our popping was grown from one of the deepest kernels of our heart: our son Jack!
Jack is on the Autism spectrum, and as parents, we wanted to plan for his future. Grateful to be able to open a business inspired by Jack’s love for popcorn, we set out to create a place of inclusion – not only for Jack but for others too.

As we grow, we aspire to make this candy-coated, kernel popping shop a cornucopia of employment opportunities for those with disabilities.  It is our hope that The Happy Popcorn Co. will become a field of dreams laden with inclusion, purpose, community and fun!

Thanks!
Bill & Kristin

Enjoy a Vibrant Summer @ West Zwick's
