I have coffeee often in a Food Co-Op that is the largest in the State of Maine...... it's kind of a cross between a gourmet and natural foods with wines, etc. kind of place. If you like tofu or fine champagne it is your kind of place!

This moring I renoticed that they sell a good sized twist tied plastic bag full of popcorn with herbs and spices on it and it was for 7.99! I would say it was 2 or 3 times as large as our large bag. It made me think: geez maybe we should do a bit of this..... "Take home a bag!" We have the corn, the public, and the staff! Do any of you sell corn like this?

That sounds like a great idea.
As a customer, I would like it "fresh from the popper", so I wouldn't pre-package it. But offering to sell fresh theatre popcorn in a take-home bag might be popular.

As a Main Street kind of place we often get people who stop by for a bag on the way home, etc. but we never really tried to expand it out. I was thinking more about expanding the use of our popper.

Selling popcorn to go? I personally wouldn't buy popcorn to go because that would take away from the theater experience. When I go I like my buttered tub, its become a tradition, and to be able to take it to go, for me is not an option.

I can see people walking in off the street to buy your popcorn because theatre popcorn is good and its not quite the same from anywhere else.

It could work I suppose, but not for me.

Being fairly new here--I was going through archives and had to respond to this one.

I have theatres in small towns--I have really pushed selling popcorn to anyone--and on a slow night I still end up with a good deposit because of the "take-home"--It has never interferred with eat-in, and the people who do buy take-out seem to buy the bigger sizes when they do come to the show--because they know it is good

forgot to mention--during parades or other "downtown" special activities, we literally sell hundreds of pounds out the door--I open just special for concessions, even if no matinee playing--as matinee would be empty at that time anyway

We sell Popcorn at a remote station near the entrance at one location to satisfy customers from the local video rental store located at the other end of the shopping complex.
