Jim Peterson of O'dell's sent me samples of the anhydrous butterfat product as well as their coconut oil that stays liquid at room temperature. (They mix a little corn oil in with the coconut oil.) He also sent me some examples of marketing materials that are available such as a concessions stand teepee (don't know what else to call it.. little cardboard triangular standee.)
I got in touch with them at (800) 635-0436. I think he can also tell you what distributors can deliver the product to your area.
Take care,
Rance

i have been using o'dells for about three years. When i switched to it from butter sticks, my customers also were not thrilled. I now mix it 50/50 with the cheap stuff (that my competitors use alone) and everyone is thrilled. We even have several "popcorn" customers who rarely see movies, but buy popcorn once or twice a week

John,

That was pretty smart--and should not increase the dangers of food poisoning (which was also great about having just pure butterfat--as pure butterfat does not sustain bacteria)--I might need to try that--it was nice advertising "butter" rather than "topping" and at 50/50 it is higher concentrate than the store bought 60/40 butter.

Back to the Gold Medal: we have the auto button and it works terriffic. We also have a hand pump: and what a difference. It's also easier for new people to learn as the hand operated seems to require skill and with the elec model this is not so true.

I took my crew on a field trip last weekend to a theater about 100 miles away. It had been completely remodeled and split and I wanted to see it. The owner had borrowed some 6000' reels from me long ago so I called to tell him we were coming to get them and catch a movie.

They were quite busy when we got there so I offered to help in the concession stand. I refilled someone's popcorn and went to add "butter". The liquid hit the popcorn and splattered everywhere. Guess that is the skill you are referring to.

I don't have that problem. I heat my butter in glass syrup containers in the microwave and keep them warm in the popcorn machine. That wouldn't work in a busier place than mine, but it works great for me.

P.S. Their theater was nice.
