Nom Nom Popcorn Company was established in January 2014 by Marc and Christi Albert in Canal Fulton, Ohio. This husband and wife team had always been gourmet popcorn connoisseurs, visiting popcorn shops anywhere they traveled. With over 30 years of combined business and marketing experience, they decided to make the best gourmet popcorn available via Nom Nom Popcorn Fundraising. Marc and Christi worked with programmers to create an online fundraising system that would modernize the "old fashioned" way of fundraising and integrate seamlessly into a new social media driven environment.
Hundreds upon hundreds of groups have now earned their funds by having a customized Nom Nom Popcorn Fundraising site. The sites are open and earning for them year round. Animal Rescues, Athletic Teams, Dance and Gymnastic Studios, School Bands and Choirs are just some of the wonderful fundraising groups that Nom Nom Popcorn Company has had the pleasure of teaming with since the company kicked off. Nom Nom Popcorn Fundraising now stretches from coast to coast.
Since 2014, Nom Nom Popcorn has partnered with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Canton Charge to make a custom popcorn (called "Qrunch") for fans to enjoy during the amazing seasons. Nom Nom Popcorn now has a kiosk on site at Quicken Loans Arena for sporting, musical and other events. Several delicious flavors of popcorn are scooped fresh and served to hungry visitors!
After bringing Nom Nom Popcorn tents to many Northeast Ohio Events, local customers requested that they open a retail store. Marc and Christi worked with artists and contractors over the summer of 2015 to see their first retail location open at the end of August.
The adorable "bear cave" inspired store has become a destination location offering over 80 flavors of mouth-watering popcorn to sample and enjoy. With production taking place on site, visitors are often drawn in by the intoxicating smell and unmistakable sound of fresh popcorn popping. Marc and Christi want every visitor to have a memorable experience and feel welcome to linger and taste as many flavors as they wish. With options such as Caramel/Dark Chocolate/Sea Salt, Cookies & Cream, Buffalo Ranch and Loaded Baked Potato, one can make a meal out of a sampling session!
In May of 2016, Nom Nom was pleased to announce their acquisition of Caroline’s Cupcakes in the Belden Village area of Canton, Ohio. The talented baker and beloved cupcake recipes remained the same while the location received the signature “bear cave” look and a brand new name, the Nom Nom Cupcake Factory. Nom Nom Popcorn Company placed an amazing popcorn bar in the spacious shop and made the store a “must visit” for treat lovers everywhere!
Nom Nom Popcorn is continuing its terrific momentum in the form of franchises now available throughout Ohio and beyond. Marc and Christi are excited to expand their vision for creating only the best gourmet goodies, while ensuring the delight of each and every customer.
