How we got Popp'n
Lisa Shiver, Owner
Lisa was born and raised in Dade City, Fla., a small town outside of Tampa. She owned horses and loved to draw; art is a big passion of her’s. At 31 years old she moved to Dallas, TX and had two beautiful children. There she discovered a candy store that also sold popcorn tins, which she loved giving as holiday gifts.
A few years later, Lisa and her family moved to Huntsville, Ala., and she was constantly searching for a store that sold popcorn like she found in Dallas. To her surprise, there wasn’t a single store in town that sold gourmet popcorn, so she was forced to shop online. Her online shopping opened her eyes to the wide variety of gourmet popcorn flavors available, and that’s when her dream was born.
Lisa wanted to show Huntsville what they were missing when it came to this delicious, popular snack. With the support of her daughter, Erica, and her husband, Joe, she finally pursued her dream of opening a store. Finally, after many taste tests with friends and family, she perfected her many flavor varieties and opened her first location on July 9, 2011. What’s Popp’n wouldn’t exist without the support of Lisa’s family, friends and God, and she’s overjoyed to share her love of popcorn with you. Never give up because dreams do come true!
